The publication of the now classic article on generalization, "An Implicit Technology of Generalization" (Stokes & Baer, 1977), spurred interest in generalization as an active process rather than a passive process consisting primarily of a failure to discriminate between training and nontraining settings. Following their description of nine areas in which the extant behavioral research addressed generalization issues, a new interest in generalization of behavior change was home. More than a decade later, their description of categories of techniques that purportedly could be used to produce generalization was refined in "An Operant Pursuit of Generalization" (Stokes & Osnes, 1989). Stokes and Osnes described 12 general ization-promoting strategies that were classified within three broader areas. Their description assisted the field in continuing to focus interest on the fundamental need for the results of behavioral interventions to generalize effectively and to be durable and for behavioral research to actively address generalization. Now, more than a decade following the publication of "An Operant Pursuit of Generalization" and a quarter century after "An Implicit Technology of Generalization" was published, the time has arrived to address the status of generalization-promotion by behavior analysts, both in their conceptual and empirical investigations. **********
