The Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (JEAB) was established in 1958 as a peer-reviewed, psychology journal, that publishes fundamental research about the experimental analysis of behavior.

The journal is indexed in the standard indexes, including PubMed, PsycINFO, and Web of Science. It is published bi-monthly by the Society for the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (SEAB). It publishes about 50 articles per year; most of them empirical but also theoretical papers and scholarly book reviews. In its long history, JEAB has published many seminal papers in experimental psychology. For example, Richard Herrnstein's "On the Law of Effect" was published in JEAB in 1970.

Given its foundational history, JEAB has long been regarded as the flagship journal in the experimental analysis of behavior. Likewise, the other SEAB journal, the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, which commenced publication in 1968, is widely regarded as the flagship journal in that field.

JEAB's ISSN is 0022-5002. JEAB's 2011 Impact Factor according to the Web of Science data base is 1.385 which is comparable to journals publishing similar content.
