ABSTRACT The occupation of academic and institutional places denotes an expansion of behavior analysis between the 1940s and 1950s. However, the image of isolation of the Skinnerian science also started to become widespread among supporters and critics of the area during this phase. In this article, this ambiguous scenario was analyzed by examining aspects surrounding the history of the foundation of the first behavior analysis journal: Journal of the Experimental Analysis of Behavior (JEAB). The foundation of JEAB denotes an emblematic episode for understanding a perennial phenomenon in the history of behavior analysis: its continuous institutional and scientific expansion followed by its growing representation of isolation in the scientific community (AU)
