We evaluated research productivity of several graduate programs that provide Behavior Analyst Certification Board (BACB)-approved course sequences in behavior analysis. Considering the faculty of BACB training programs as a unit, in only about 50 %, programs have faculty combined to publish ten or more total articles in our field’s primary empirical journals. Among individual faculty members, a sizeable number have not published an article in any of the field’s top journals. To recognize major scholarly contributors, we provide top 10 lists of training programs and individual faculty members. We conclude by discussing the importance of research in an increasingly practice-driven marketplace.
