Authorship Trends in "The Analysis of Verbal Behavior": 1982-2016
Ben, Rodrigo Dal; Goyos, Celso
Analysis of Verbal Behavior, v33 n1 p117-138 Jun 2017
"The Analysis of Verbal Behavior" ("TAVB") is the only journal focused on theoretical and empirical research in verbal behavior. An assessment of authorship trends can provide a critical perspective on practices in verbal behavior analysis (e.g., participation by non-US institutions, contributions by female authors). The present study examines authorship trends in all articles published in "TAVB" since its inception (between 1982 and 2016). All authors and their affiliations were listed and the first authors denoted as such. Authors were characterized as follows: prolificacy, new vs. frequent contributor status, number of co-authors, editor status, fellow status in a professional organization, and gender. Institutional affiliations were characterized as follows: academic vs. nonacademic institutions, prolificacy, and location (country). The review included 383 articles by 487 authors from 200 institutions. Our findings revealed areas in which "TAVB" is reaching maturity (e.g., author gender) and areas in which further action by contributors and editors is needed (e.g., international participation).
