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.

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid. Click below to read about and download these talks -- and to subscribe!
JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
