The International Journal of
Positive Behavioural Support

BILD is pleased to announce the launch of a new Journal
– The International Journal of Positive Behavioural
Support. This will be published twice a year, and the
first edition will be May 2011.

Positive behavioural support (PBS) combines the conceptual framework of
applied behaviour analysis with the values base of social role valorisation and
framework of person-centred approaches.

The International Journal of Positive Behavioural Support is a peer-reviewed
publication that aims to:
• define and promote good practice in relation to the use of PBS
• add to the evidence base regarding such interventions
• demonstrate how PBS interventions can support people to change their
challenging behaviours, improve their quality of life, and result in reductions
in the use of restrictive procedures (such as physical intervention, seclusion
and as required medication)
• bridge the gap between academic research and service practice
The Journal will welcome contributions in the form of single-case studies, group
studies and accounts of wider organisational change. In addition to papers
describing more traditional experimental methodologies, manuscripts that report
routine data collected by services or as part of dedicated audits will be welcome.
The Journal will feature both quantitative and qualitative studies.
Theoretical papers will also be considered providing these demonstrate a clear
link to evidence in the existing literature or propose extensions to current practice.
The Editors will also commission research reviews.
While the primary focus of the Journal is the use of PBS approaches in supporting
children and adults with intellectual disability, articles demonstrating their use with
other populations will also be published.
