  • Call for Papers - Revitalizing Behavioral Community Psychology

    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
    Submission Deadlines: Abstracts are to be submitted for consideration by December 1, 2020. Invited submissions should be submitted by April 1, 2021

  • COVID-19 Impact

    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.

  • Call for Papers - International Perspectives on Cultural and Social Issues

    Behavior and Social Issues is currently welcoming submissions by behavior analysts and scholars/reseachers from related disciplines to contribute to a special issue focused on international perspectives on cultural and social issues.

    Guest Editors: Christoph Bördlein, Sarah Richling, and Holly Seniuk

    Submission Deadline: December 1, 2020
