The Journal of Exceptional Experiences and Psychology

Apparently they don't have PDFs, but you can read the journal online via your browser....I find it kind of annoying to be honest.

The Journal of Exceptional Experiences and Psychology (JEEP) is an online, international journal dedicated to the exploration and advancement of exceptional psychology, which is a field that studies experiences and phenomena traditionally germane to parapsychology and yet, goes beyond in breadth. Some examples of experiences under investigation by exceptional psychology include survival after death, out-of-body experiences, extrasensory perception, psychokinesis, poltergeists, mediumship, and hauntings. Also included are cryptids, abduction scenarios, possession, psychic healing, and synchronicity.

Exceptional psychology approaches these phenomena from a neutral and bracketed stance. Simply put, exceptional psychology uses an integrative and phenomenological approach. This includes embracing the varieties of inquiry such as experimentation, ethnography, phenomenology, personal narratives, art, and poetry. Each seeks to reveal, in its own way, the essence of the exceptional experience.

What’s more, exceptional psychology encourages the application of helpful aspects of certain exceptional experiences to clinical praxis. This is just as much a part of the project as research and theorizing. For instance, clinical approaches include the use of psychic healing practices and the application of mediumship to the bereavement process.

The Journal of Exceptional Experiences and Psychology encourages the submission of manuscripts, creative writing, artwork, and video related to exceptional experiences. The journal is peer-refereed; submissions will be blindly reviewed and a recommendation for acceptance, revisions, or denial will be made to the editors. JEEP is published biannually and welcomes submissions all year.

I guess we'll see what becomes of this. I don't think the answer is more journals, but transparency in where the numbers come from as well as a more directed effort to isolate testable hypotheses.
