JOURNAL OF NEAR-DEATH STUDIES (ISSN: 0891-4494; formerly Anabiosis; The Journal for Near-Death Studies) is sponsored by the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS). The Journal publishes articles on near-death experiences, on the empirical effects and theoretical implications of such events, and on such related phenomena as out-of-body experiences, deathbed visions, after-death communication, the experiences of dying persons, comparable experiences occurring under other circumstances, and the implications of such phenomena for an understanding of human consciousness and its relation to life and death processes. The Journal Editor(s) and Consulting Editors are committed to an unbiased exploration of these issues and specifically welcome a variety of theoretical perspective and interpretations that are grounded in empirical observation or research.
