Enigma Journal

Enigma was created in 1993 and published four times a year in order to publish the findings and research notes of The Independent Research Centre for Unexplained Phenomena.

Back issues of most editions are still available, but for Internet users, a selection of articles have been reproduced here.

All articles are subject to copyright and may not be reproduced without the express written permission of Enigma Publications or the original author.

The format is printed A5 size and all issues feature a chatty editorial and various editorial comments/news items not neccessarily listed in this index.

For more information or subscription details, please contact us.

Due to funding difficulties, Enigma was not published between autumn 2001 and the present time. However, I'm hoping to re-launch Enigma in the near future.

Colours represent the cover colour of the printed issue.
