The primary intellectual framework for Behavior and Social Issues is the science of behavior analysis and its sub-discipline of cultural systems analysis, but contributions from contrasting viewpoints will occasionally be considered if of specific interest to behavior analysts. We recommend that potential authors examine recent issues to determine whether their work is appropriate to the journal. Appropriate contributions include theoretical and conceptual analyses, research articles and brief reports, dialogues, and research reviews. Behavior and Social Issues is an appropriate forum for the work of senior scholars in the field, many of whom serve on the editorial board, as well as for the work of emerging scholars, including students, who have an interest in the contributions of a natural science of behavior to constructing cultures of social justice, human rights, and environmental sustainability.
Behavior and Social Issues is an official publication of the Association for Behavior Analysis International.

Authors (first, second and last of 10)
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in adhering to the normal timelines associated with many steps of the publication process, including peer review. Please do let us know if you need additional time at any step. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines, but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
We invite behavior analysts, as well as scholars and researchers from related disciplines familiar with behavior analysis, to contribute to a special issue of Behavior and Social Issues focused on behavioral community psychology. We especially invite contributions by authors whose work is at the intersection of behavior-analytic and community-engaged approaches. The focus of this special issue is to explore and promote the ways that behavioral-community psychology can once again become a prominent contributor to addressing social problems, both domestically and internationally.
Guest Editors: Jomella Watson-Thompson, Kaston D. Anderson-Carpenter, Richard Rakos

The journal especially invites contributions by authors from or engaged with countries where there are few or no universities offering programs in behavior analysis and the community of behavior analysts is small.
