A complete collection of the 8 issues of “Journal UFO” (a Canadian publication from 1979 to 1980, edited by Dave Haisell) is now available online.
The editor of “Journal UFO”, Dave Haisell, kindly gave me his permission last week for me to make this publication freely available online. It
has been scanned by our helpful friends at the Archives For the Unexplained (“AFU”) in Sweden from their vast archives.
Canadian UFO researcher Sue Demeter-St Clair recently referred to this publication as a “great resource”. I found “Journal UFO” interesting
because, apart from UFO case reports, it included:
(1) Higher quality articles than you will find in most UFO magazines (or on most UFO websites…);
(2) Articles by various leading Canadian UFO researchers, including Stanton Friedman and Chris Rutkowski;
(3) Interviews with some other leading Canadian UFO researchers;
(4) More coverage of what was happening internationally than most American UFO magazines included (or include today…).
The relevant collection of 8 searchable PDFs can be downloaded as a single zip file from a temporary link on Wetransfer
) and, as a longer term home, each issue is also on part of the AFU’s website
Add this to a download of the complete collection of the sceptical "Probe Report" UFO journal (an early 1980s British publication edited by Ian
Mrzyglod, which I have previously made available online
) and you can get a good
impression of the higher quality UFO publications from the 1970s-1980s.
For good measure, I recommend also adding the MUFON Journals, NICAP Newsletters, APRO
Bulletins and other material from links that I've previously posted online
. You can then use
the search technique I've already previously written about
to search all of these
collections of UFO journals/newsletters at the same time, together with collections of official documents (such as those I've made available in
searchable PDF format from files held by the FBI
and those in
), digitised UFO books and other material (such as the archives of the
better UFO email discussion Lists, e.g. the UfoUpdates List).
I would like to thank Dave Haisell again for giving his permission for his “Journal UFO” publication to be made freely available online and also
to thank the AFU for doing the rather boring task of scanning all the issues.
So that people can get an idea of the content and nature of “Journal UFO” without downloading all the issues, I’ll just post the Cover and table
of contents for each issue (plus a few sample pages) below – starting with Volume 1 Issue 1:
