The Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis (JABA) was established in 1968 as a peer-reviewed, psychology journal, that publishes research about applications of the experimental analysis of behavior to problems of social importance.

The journal was created by Donald Baer, Sidney W. Bijou, Todd Risley, and Montrose Wolf.[1]

The journal is indexed in, among others, PubMed PsycINFO, and Web of Science.[2] It is published quarterly by the Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (SEAB). It typically publishes 50-60 articles per year. Its ISSN is 0021-8855. As of 2014, its impact factor is.762.≈ SEAB also publishes the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, which commenced publication in 1958.

JABA is a delayed open access journal: all issues from 1968 onwards, except the most recent three, are available free from PubMed Central.[3]

Recently JABA has noticed a lowering in its impact factor.[clarification needed] In addition, the journal has seen a restriction of its content to largely developmental disabilities.[4]
