About Society for Scientific Exploration

The Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) provides a critical forum for research on topics that cover a wide spectrum, ranging from apparent anomalies in well-established disciplines to rogue phenomena that seem to belong to no established discipline. The SSE publishes the peer-reviewed Journal of Scientific Exploration and the popular EdgeScience magazine, as well as producing videos of talks from SSE-hosted conferences and sharing them freely on its YouTube channel. The subjects explored often cross mainstream boundaries, yet may have profound implications for human knowledge and technology.

Recently, the SSE boldly eliminated all of its content paywalls in support of the developing open access model in the sciences. Content that was once exclusively available to SSE members is currently being released to the public. However, SSE publications still require a staff of editors, copy editors, and layout designers. Advancing the quality of our YouTube videos requires an ample budget for professional A/V management, videographers, and video editors. Providing professional and rigorous scientific content creates particular funding needs.

This is where your patronage can help. With a small, monthly pledge you can support the SSE in advancing this content while enjoying a few small perks as thanks. If you would like to take your support of our 501(c)(3) nonprofit a step further by networking with scientists and scholars at meetings and events, consider becoming an SSE member. Either way, your donation will support us in maintaining a critical forum for researchers at the cutting edge of science.
