Seminal Article defining Applied Behavior Analysis: Baer,D.M.,Wolf, M.M., & Risley, T.R. (1968). Some current dimensions of applied behavior analysis, Jnl of Applied Behavior Analysis,1:91-97.
Fantastic article on teaching generalization: Stokes, T. F. and Baer, D. M. (1977), An implicit technology of generalization. Jnl of Applied Behav Analysis, 10: 349–367
Superb article on considering aesthetics when developing interventions: Hineline, P. N. (2005). The aesthetics of behavioral arrangements. The Behavior Analyst, 28(1), 15.
This fascinating article demonstrated a preference of two children for a punishment procedure (indicating oftentimes treament selection may be guided by individuals and evidence): Hanley, G. P., Piazza, C. C., Fisher, W. W., & Maglieri, K. A. (2005). On the effectiveness of and preference for punishment and extinction components of function-based interventions. Jnl of Applied Behavior Analysis, 38(1), 51-65.
Amazingly, Don Baer wrote this article in 1980, yet so much of it rings true today regarding the desparity between the science of behavior anlaysis and the practice: Baer, D. M. (1981). A flight of behavior analysis. The Behavior Analyst, 4(2), 85.
This article and the research that followed helped evolve our field from the technology of behavior modification into behavior analysis by identifying the function of behavior in a systematic way, and providing the methodology for practioners to use: Iwata, B. A., Dorsey, M. F., Slifer, K. J., Bauman, K. E., & Richman, G. S. (1994). Toward a functional analysis of self‐injury. Jnl of applied behavior analysis, 27(2), 197-209.
Profound evaluation of cost/assessment/treatment for excellent ABA consultation: Hanley, G. P., Jin, C. S., Vanselow, N. R., & Hanratty L. A. (2014). Producing meaningful improvements in problem behavior of children with autism via synthesized analyses and treatments. Jnl of Applied Behavior Analysis, 47 (1), 16-36.
Excellent guidance on conducting functional assessments for practitioners: Hanley, G. P. (2012). Functional Assessment of Problem Behavior: Dispelling Myths, Overcoming Implementation Obstacles, and Developing New Lore. Behav Analysis and Pract, 5(1), 54-72.
