Our starting point for this chapter was a frequency analysis of the key words attached to articles published during the 10-year period from 1996–2006 in the Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior, a standard source of literature on operant conditioning. The topics we take up here are those our analysis revealed as more readily definitive, though we do not present them in order of relative frequency. Taken together, we consider them a reasonable roadmap for navigating the present landscape of theory and research in operant conditioning. We will turn to the topics after a brief look at the basic elements of the foundational theory of operant conditioning and general methods for its study.
