Parapsychology & Psychical Research

American Society for Psychical Research

The ASPR is the oldest psychical research organisation in the United States. For more than a century, the ASPR has supported the scientific investigation of extraordinary or as yet unexplained phenomena that have been called psychic or paranormal. The ASPR was founded in 1885 by a distinguished group of scholars who shared the courage and vision to explore the uncharted realms of human consciousness.

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. The Journal also publishes peer-reviewed Student Research Briefs.

The Society does this by promoting and supporting important research, and by publishing scholarly reports of a high standard. It acts as a forum for debate by organising educational activities, and by disseminating information about current developments.

Also provides information about the range and quality of the scientific survival research literature from the 1880s to date.
