Behaviorism at 100


Comment

A quick search on PsycInfo, the database of research and associated media published by the American Psychological Association, yielded the following information: The term "Behaviorology" yielded 19 hits consisting of 14 journal articles and 5 books. The term "Applied Behavior Analysis," searched as a single term, yielded 3,580 hits for similar information, producing 3,230 journal articles and 210 books. For the latter, these could be considered extremely conservative numbers. Use of this and other atypical terms throughout the article to describe the long-standing and well-researched body of science in this field is a disservice to the researchers, clinicians, and ultimately the public.
