Focus and Scope

The Journal of Nonlocality has been set up to address an experimental and conceptual impasse in understanding the nature of nonlocality and observer effects in quantum mechanics. In conjunction with ICRL’s Mind-Matter Mapping Project, we hope to create a research venue where cutting-edge experimental tools in physics, biology and parapsychology can be combined to design more revealing protocols; to bypass the experimental difficulties identified by Wheeler and  Bell; and to  cast new light on the role that these effects play in genetic regulatory systems, placebo, anomalous perception and retrocausality.

Peer Review Process

Submissions are accepted and published as rapid pre-prints throughout the year. All papers will be pre-screened/peer-reviewed by our editorial board within 2 weeks of submission, after which articles will be rejected, sent back for revision or published in the Open Preprints section of the journal for open peer commentary. Revised papers are included in the following issue of the Journal of Nonlocality. Peer and general reader comments will be moderated and published on both the JNL and M3P websites, with post-publication comments added as they are submitted.

 

 

Publication Frequency

 

Publication frequency is biannual (June and December), starting with December 2012. Rapid pre-prints are published throughout the year, generally within 2-4 weeks of submission.
