Chris Ninness, John Roberts, Daniel Krell, Gina Richman


The mainstay of professional behavior analytic publications is the venerable quarterly journal transcribed, reproduced and distributed on paper parchment. However, texts and diversified forms of publications are now being distributed via magnetic media. This advancement enables low cost distribution of text and software on 3.5-inch diskettes. Presently available word processors provide the means for generating electronic text, which, in turn, introduces the possibilities for journal distribution by diskette.
If a journal were issued as a diskette the cost per copy would be substantially reduced. Articles with embedded charts, tables, and figures could be accepted on diskette, edited and included in the journal with no retyping costs. This strategy would provide editors and readers with a new options for distributing behavior analytic literature and technology.
