About SSE Membership

The Society for Scientific Exploration provides a critical international forum for sharing original research on unconventional topics and furthering our understanding of human capabilities.

The society is fully donor and member-funded, with contributions providing for open access research through a peer-reviewed journal and SSE-hosted conferences where professional researchers and interested members of the public engage with one another to advance science.

Anyone can join the society by making an annual contribution, with the membership level dependent on level of contribution and academic status. All contributions are tax deductible.
