Journal of Nonlocality

Carlos S. Alvarado, Ph.D., Division of Perceptual Studies, University of Virginia

The first issue of the Journal of Nonlocality is available here as an open access publication:http://journals.sfu.ca/jnonlocality/index.php/jnonlocality.

Here is information about the journal's Editorial Board http://www.mindmattermapping.org/home/journal-of-nonlocality/editorial-board  and its Table of Contents:http://journals.sfu.ca/jnonlocality/index.php/jnonlocality/issue/view/1/showToc

According to the the publishers, the International Consciousness Research Laboratories (http://icrl.org/):  "The Journal of Nonlocality has been set up to address an experimental and conceptual impasse in understanding the nature of nonlocality and observer effects in quantum mechanics. In conjunction with ICRL's Mind-Matter Mapping Project, we hope to create a research venue where cutting-edge experimental tools in physics, biology and parapsychology can be combined to design more revealing protocols; to bypass the experimental difficulties identified by Wheeler and Bell; and to cast new light on the role that these effects play in genetic regulatory systems, placebo effects, anomalous perception and retrocausality."

The history of the journal is summarized by the publishers in their website as follows: "The Journal of Nonlocality started out as an open access, non-peer reviewed publication in 2002 under the title Journal of Nonlocality and Remote Mental Interactions (JNLRMI). Volumes I-IV are accessible in full text at http://emergentmind.org/journal.htm"  

"The history of the journal is summarized by the publishers in their website as follows: "In 2011 ICRL decided to adopt the title Journal of Nonlocality for its new peer-reviewed publication, building on the research directions outlined by the now-retired JNLRMI, but with an exclusive focus on experimental design and empirical results. While some of the original editorial board members remain, a sustained effort has been made to broaden the expertise area and reach out to the mainstream research community in related fields such as biophysics and foundations of quantum mechanics."
