The Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (JEAB) was established in 1958 as a peer-reviewed, psychology journal, that publishes fundamental research about the experimental analysis of behavior.
The journal is indexed in the standard indexes, including PubMed PsycINFO, and Web of Science. It is published bi-monthly 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 about 100 articles per year; although early volumes mainly included reports of experiments on animals, current issues report a mixture of human and animal experimentation. Its ISSN is 0022-5002. 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 1.221; this is high by the standard of journals which include substantial amounts of data from animal experiments in psychology, and it probably understates the journal's influence given its highly specialised niche. SEAB also publishes the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, which commenced publication in 1968.
