General Information

 

Below are links to sites maintained by individuals that have useful information or other resources relating to parapsychology, including skeptical perspectives.

 

European Journal of Parapsychology (EJP)

The EJP is a peer-reviewed scientific journal for research - particularly theoretical and theory-driven empirical work - relating to the field of parapsychology. The Journal's aim is to stimulate and enhance activity in parapsychology, particularly in Europe, by publishing Articles, Research Notes, Reviews and Comments that offer insight into or criticisms of parapsychological research. A distinctive feature of the EJP is that its Editor, Martin Johnson, in 1978 established a publication policy to judge submitted articles on the basis of the quality of their planned methodology, prior to the proposed research having been conducted. EJP is currently out-of-press, with the last published issue being in 2010.

Journal of Non-Locality and Remote Mental Interactions (JNLRMI)

"A free online journal offering its readers a forum for the scientific investigation of our human potential. Based on current research in physics, parapsychology and complementary medicine, and drawing on the discipline of meditative arts such as qigong, the discussion will revolve around the nature of space-time, causality, and individual selves; focused intentionality as a tool for shaping personal and social reality; the cultivation of mental energy and "psi" abilities; and the creation of global resonance to ensure a peaceful, meaningful and humane future for our planet."
