the American Society for Psychical Research A scientific journal providing scholarly reports, research findings, discussions of implications and applications of psychic functioning, and book reviews. This is one of the core journals in the field. The American Society for Psychical Research is the oldest psychical research organization in the United States.

Now psychical research is concerned with alleged events which seem prima facie to conflict with one or more of these principles. Let us call any event which seems prima facie to do this an Ostensibly Paranormal Event. A psychical researcher has to raise the following questions about any ostensibly paranormal event which he investigates.
