Strong writing skills are essential for many different careers within the field of behavior analysis. For example, practitioners must write effectively to communicate treatment plans to staff and caregivers, academics must write successfully to teach others about behavior analysis, and researchers must write well to disseminate their findings to others. However, it can be difficult for young professionals to manage their time effectively to be productive and to keep up with the current formatting and style requirements when new publication guidelines are released. During this professional development series event, panelists will discuss strategies for time-management and for avoiding common pitfalls that researchers make during the manuscript-submission process. Last, researchers and writers in the field of applied behavior analysis will discuss changes in the American Psychological Association (APA) publication guidelines with the release of the 7th edition manual.
