There are several levels of membership to allow students, those who are not directly working in the field, and members of the general public to join. Note: in the Publications drop down, take a look at the Mindfields offering, a publication with wider appeal than a journal.

There are a few that are free, but you are encouraged to join, not only to gain access to the media library and get discounts on webcasts of new lectures and discounts on classes and other things, but mainly to help support the work of the Rhine.

The Rhine publishes the Journal of Parapsychology.

Of course, there are more good websites from other reputable organizations and sources of information (though FYI, Wikipedia is NOT one of them), as well as websites of many of my colleagues in and around Parapsychology & Psychical Research. Contact me if you want more via email at email@example.com and follow me on Twitter @profparanormal
Below is a list of Twitter accounts to follow for news and gossip of the Paranormal and Parapsychology that I find credible (in no particular order). Naturally, given what’s going on with Twitter these days since the takeover by Elon Musk, there’s no guarantee all of these folks/groups will stick around on the platform (or that Twitter will even survive).
