CCBS Journals & Our Recommendations

Behavior and Philosophy Publication as an E-Journal

Behavior and Philosophy operates according to an open-access model as of 2014. Articles that are accepted through peer review will be copyedited and appear immediately online in the contents of the current volume on the CCBS website ( CCBS is in process to make volumes available as electronic publications. We hope that open access in its new electronic format will mean wider dissemination of the journal. Regardless, Behavior and Philosophy will continue in the tradition of scholarship and excellence for which it is known.

We invite readers and potential authors to submit articles, book reviews, and comments in keeping with the mission of the journal.

Questions may be addressed to the editor, DIego Zilio, PhD or CCBS.

As is our custom, the current volumes cover a broad range of topics at the intersection of philosophy and psychology. The current volumes have target articles  on explanation and computer simulations, with comments by reviewers and replies  by authors. Other articles include the role of memes in social evolution, methodological behaviorism, and book reviews. We hope readers find these articles as stimulating as did the referees.

For authors, article-by-article electronic publication means instant access to a wide audience and fewer constraints on length and graphic materials. For the publisher it means reduced costs and a shorter response time.

Access through JSTOR

*BEHAVIORISM, the journal, was founded in 1972 by Willard Day, a remarkable clinician/philosopher who nurtured a series of remarkable, often ground-breaking essays that raised the visibility of contemporary behavioral thinking within the broader intellectual community. These comprised the first 13 years of the journal, which he handed over to the Cambridge Center for Behavioral Studies in 1984. In 1990 the journal was re-titled Behavior & Philosophy, and it has continued to the present day under a succession of capable editors.
