Dear SSE Community,

Thanks to your feedback and support, the peer-reviewed Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE) now has a new, enlarged format, more types of content, and a richer array of frontier science topics in every issue. These improvements have enhanced the reach and impact of this professional forum that is dedicated to the critical discussion of issues that are ignored or studied inadequately within mainstream science, as well as the social and intellectual factors that undermine scientific inquiry.

You might be surprised to learn that the editorial team consistently meets these high standards without the aid of any subscription or author fees. Instead, the JSE relies on donations to maintain its Platinum Open Access status and produce its abundance of important content. If you value the JSE's mission, please become an “Open Access Champion” today. Without donations, we could be faced with reinstating publication fees that sadly often stifle new research.

Now more than ever, maverick scientists need their activities recognized and voices heard. So please match my own donation of $200, if at all possible. In return, Champions receive print copies of the JSE and formal recognition in future issues.

Your generous support will enable the JSE to remain a unique and unrestricted platform for academic freedom and intellectual humility.

Thank you!

James Houran, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief
