The Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE) is a "peer-reviewed" pseudojournal put out by the Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE). Like many pseudoscience promoting organizations, their name is misleading. According to the website:

The JSE is the quarterly, peer-reviewed journal of the SSE. Since 1987, the JSE has published original research on consciousness, quantum and biophysics, unexplained aerial phenomena, alternative medicine, new energy, sociology, psychology, and much more. The journal also contains book reviews, letters to the editor, and peer correspondence.

JSE has much less to do with science than it does with whatever pet crank theories its editors are out to promote. It's chock-full of all kinds of woo, including (but not limited to) alternative medicine, astrology, remote viewing, AIDS denial, quantum woo, UFOs, and much, much more! The Society also puts out a magazine called EdgeScience, possibly trying to ape this organization dedicated to actual science.

The spiritualist crank Stephen E. Braude operates as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal.
