Professional behavior analysts should stay in touch with developments in the discipline. Many organizations indicate this is a requirement in the profession. For example, the Behavior Analyst Certification Board's Ethics Code suggests, "behavior analysts actively engage in professional development activities to maintain and further their professional competence. Professional development activities include reading relevant literature..." (2020, p.9). However, after leaving the university, a professional behavior analyst may encounter various barriers to accessing the relevant literature. This webinar will cover how the academic literature is organized, which resources are available to Board Certified Behavior Analysts, how to interact with the various research resources available, and how to search for behavior analytic concepts and terms.
