Behavior and Social Issues

Affiliated with Behaviorists for Social Responsibility, Behavior and Social Issues is a peer-reviewed, interdisciplinary scientific journal which serves as a primary scholarly outlet for articles that advance the analysis of human social behavior, particularly with regard to understanding and influencing important social problems. The journal is particularly interested in publishing work related to issues with social justice, human rights, and sustainability implications, but all significant social issues are of interest. The journal serves as a nexus for the development of an intellectual community interested in these areas, which receive only modest attention in most behavioral outlets despite their potential importance for society. Articles considered for publication should be grounded in behavior analytic and behavioral systems science. (Please see About the Journal on the menu above to review the Focus and Scope of the journal.)
