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 now has over 7,000 subscribers, and is indexed in the standard indexes, including PubMed PsycINFO, and Web of Science. It is published quarterly by the Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (SEAB), originally at the Department of Psychology, Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana and now at the University of Rochester. It typically publishes 50-60 articles per year. Its ISSN is 0021-8855. Because the Society publishes the journal itself, it has kept the subscription price much lower than those of comparable commercially published journals; concessionary rates are available for students. As of 2008, its Impact Factor according to the Web of Science data base is 0.491; this probably understates the journal's influence given its highly specialised niche. SEAB also publishes the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, which commenced publication in 1958.
