Call for Papers: Diversity and Equity in the Practice of Behavior Analysis

The world is currently experiencing a revolution in awareness for the need for greater equity amongst humans, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, socioeconomic class, or any other classification. In acknowledgement of the central importance of this topic to behavior analysis, science, and the culture more broadly, the journal Behavior Analysis in Practice is currently soliciting submissions for a special issue on Diversity and Equity in the Practice of Behavior Analysis.
Types of articles that are appropriate for submission include: papers on sexuality, sexual orientation and gender identity in individuals with disabilities; women behavior analysts in leadership roles; behavioral differences by gender, race, and ethnicity; methods for increasing diversity in our field; parent and staff training and consultation that takes into account cultural differences; BCBA/student training models on diversity and cultural awareness; using behavior analytic principles to train first responders and other community members; and attitudes on disability, diversity, and equity. Papers that provide specific, practical guidance on ways we can move the discipline of behavior analysis forward in becoming a more diverse and equitable field are especially encouraged. Theoretical, methodological, survey data, group and single subject design research will be considered, as will practice guidelines and tutorials.
Behavior Analysis in Practice is privileged to have Dr. Jennifer Zarcone serve as the Guest Editor for the special issue. The call for papers closes on October 15th, 2018.
