The Special Interest Group (SIG)
The Experimental Analysis of Human Behavior Special Interest Group (EAHB-SIG) is chartered by the Association for Behavior Analysis, International. ABAI is an organization of more than 5,000 individuals with an interest in conceptual and empirical issues in the experimental and applied analysis of behavior.
The SIG Mission
The mission of the EAHB-SIG is to promote the experimental analysis of behavior with human subjects as a means of addressing important fundamental questions about human problems and human nature.
In recent years the energies of EAHB-SIG members have focused on three continuing projects:
- The EAHB-SIG Career Award: This award is designed to recognize substantive and sustained contributions to the EAHB literature. The award is presented at the annual convention.
- The Student Paper Competition: The competition is designed to promote and recognize scholarly activity in the Experimental Analysis of Human Behavior. Students are encouraged to submit original research that has not been reviewed elsewhere. Participants receive high quality reviews from experts in their respective areas of research.
- The Experimental Analysis of Human Behavior Bulletin: The SIG also maintains an online journal (ISSN 1938-7237) for the publication of empirical articles, technical reports, and other types of articles of interest to researchers engaged in the experimental analysis of human behavior.
