Scientific Translation

The Award for Scientific Translation is given in either of the following categories: (1) Impact of Science on Application or (2) Technology Transfer. This award replaces the Award for Public Service in Behavior Analysis. Nominees do not have to be members of ABAI. The Impact of Science on Application category is for experimental/theoretical innovations in behavior analysis with significant impact on applications. The impact should be demonstrated, but the winner does not have to carry out the applications. The Technology Transfer category is applicable to an individual in the public or private sector who addresses socially significant problems using methods directly linked to behavior analysis or that effectively incorporate behavioral principles. An award in this category may be given regardless of the terminology employed or the explanation offered by the person responsible for the applications.
