Aims & Scope

The aim of JPBI is to expand the knowledge and practice of effective behavioral support in school, home, and community settings, with a focus on comprehensive outcomes in the lives of children, youth, and adults. Goals are to extend the empirical database; enhance the conceptual framework; and provide a forum for researchers, professionals, families, and policymakers. Articles must be relevant for the development and application of behavioral support. 


The Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions is the official journal of the Association for Positive Behavior Support (APBS).
