Journal for Scientific Exploration

As science has developed, it has become increasingly compartmentalized. This may make the operation of each discipline more efficient, but we run the risk that the profession may not be responding to challenges that do not fit neatly into the matrix of present-day science.

The international Journal of Scientific Exploration was established in 1987 to provide a professional forum for the presentation, scrutiny and criticism of scientific research on topics outside the established disciplines of mainstream science. JSE is the official research journal of the Society of Scientific Exporation (founded in 1982).

The Society and its Journal provide a critical forum of rationality and observational evidence for the often strange claims at the fringes of science.
Yervant Terzian, Professor of Astronomy and founding member of the Society.

Advances are made by answering questions. Discoveries are made by questioning answers.
Bernard Haisch, Astrophysicist and past Editor of the Journal of Scientific Exploration

All topics may be considered for the Journal; however, the investigations must conform to criteria of academic excellence. Many articles from earlier volumes of the JSE are available in the Articles section.

New JSE abstracts, book reviews, and selected articles will be updated on an on-going basis.
