European Journal of Parapsychology and Research Letters

From 1971 – 1989 the University of Utrecht, the Netherlands housed the Parapsychology Laboratory. This laboratory was a division of the section of experimental psychology of the department of social sciences. The Parapsychology Laboratory was an experimental research-oriented research group and was headed by Prof. Martin Johnson and Dr. Sybo Schouten. The laboratory published a Research Letter (RL) and the European Journal of Parapsychology (EJP). (See volumes and editions below)

Research Letter

This Research Letter was published irregularly depending on the availability of relevant papers. After the Parapsychology Laboratory closed down in 1989 the publication of the Research Letter was terminated. Between 1971 and 1984 a total of 12 editions were published.


European Journal of Parapsychology

Original the European Journal (EJP) had four issues per volume, The volumes 1 – 7 (1976 – 1988/89) were published in Utrecht. After the Parapsychology Laboratory closed down the publication of the European Journal was continued with the volumes 8 – 14  (1990– 1998/99) by the Koestler Chair of Parapsychology at the University of Edinburgh (UK). The publication frequency, however, was reduced to one issue per year.

Subsequently, the volumes 15 – 18 ( 2000 – 2003) were published under the chief editorship of Adrian parker by the Department of Psychology at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Starting with vol. 19 the EJP returned to Edinburgh and edited by Paul Stevens. It was now published as a digital online publication. Unfortunately, the EJP terminated after volume 25 in 2010.

Volumes 10 – 25 are available for free download from



Since the early EJP’s and RL’s are hard to find nowadays, Michael Tremmel from Germany recently digitized the early ‘Utrecht’ editions that were made available to him for free by the Dutch Foundation Het Johan Borgman Fonds. He also digitized the vol. 8 – 18 editions made available to him by the IGGP in Freiburg, Germany. His experiences with this digitizing project will be published soon in ‘Mindfield’, the member’s newsletter of the Parapsychological Association.

We are in debt to the former publishers and editors for the friendly given permission to Michael Tremmel to make these early publications available for free downloading to all concerned.
