Skeptical Inquirer Magazine

6 issues per year View Reviews   |   Write Review From $4.00 per issue Skeptical Inquirer is the official journal of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry. On a bimonthly basis, Skeptical Inquirer publishes critical scientific evaluations of paranormal and fringe-science claims and informed discussion of all relevant issues.

According to Editor Kendrick Frazier:
"Skeptical Inquirer is an unusual hybrid, part semi-popular magazine, part scientific journal. It's fair to say that we not only help to cross disciplinary barriers within scientific fields but bridge the gaps between the hard and soft sciences and between science and the general public."
Skeptical Inquirer has been called a "spokesman for rationality," serious but highly readable," "witty and informative," and a "steady buoy in the tumultuous sea of irrationality." Its contributors have included Isaac Asimov, Martin Gardner, Carl Sagan, Stephen Jay Gould, Richard Dawkins, and hundreds of other scholars and investigators worldwide.

In addition to in-depth feature articles, special reports, up to date news and comment, book reviews and investigations on a wide variety of topics, Skeptical Inquirer has a stellar stable of regular columnists including Joe Nickell (“Investigative Files”)

Authoritative, courageous, and controversial

Skeptical Inquirer is a fact-based and well-researched publication concerned with separating fact from fiction. "The Magazine for Science and Reason - For a fast-growing number of discriminating persons, the Skeptical Inquirer is a welcome breath of fresh air, separating fact from myth in the flood of occultism and pseudoscience on the scene today.
"This dynamic magazine, published by the Center for Inquiry in association with the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry, tells you what the scientific community knows about claims of the paranormal, as opposed to the sensationalism often presented by the press, television, and movies.
"The magazine is bi-monthly, six issues per year."
SI is an antidote to the poison of wilfull ignorance and stupidity.
