Our Philosophy

The mission of JAR is to create a global platform on which to debate the significance of the extraterrestrial presence. JAR will publish all cogently argued points of view that give us insight about who the UFO intelligences are, what they are doing, what they want, how human beings are reacting to them, and how the extraterrestrial presence may influence the future of the human race.

All ufology know we are living through the opening stages of the most important development in human history. What is the nature of this development? How are we to react to it?

Many answers lie in study of the abduction-encounters. That is the window through which we must look to see the UFO people who have come here. We must look at the abduction-encounters, and then at the spreading impacts of these encounters in society.

Answers? There will be many. There already are. And they differ. We at JAR see a great worldwide debate opening. We intend to carry that debate and we invite you to participate in it with us.

These are unprecedented times. The UFO community is in possession of precious information. Only the UFO community is aware extraterrestrials are present in our society. The abductions are part of that presence. We must understand the abductions!

First contact is unfolding before our eyes, yet only the UFO community can see it. Yes, the deep recesses of the American, and other, governments see it¾but they aren’t talking. So who is to interpret this advent of the alien? The public at large? Where? In America? France? India? They cannot.

Worldwide, the people know UFOs are real. The know strange things are in the skies. But they do not know the “phenomena” has landed. They do not know large forces are operating unseen upon the face of the planet, forces that would write our destiny. Only the UFO community possesses this information. Shall we let it go unremarked upon? Undebated? Uninterpreted?

JAR asks these questions: What are the aliens doing? And what do they want? Already many answers to these questions are circulating. Some humans are pleased with what the UFO people are doing. Some are not. It will be well if history records that even while the masses of people remained mute, and the governments of the world were silent, our small UFO community opened the debate on behalf of the human race.

-----the Editors of JAR

JAR’s Editorial Policy

JAR will publish all cogently argued points of view. JAR is a high-quality publication but we are not an “academic” journal. JAR honors the tradition of the “citizen investigator” and the contribution of the thousands of citizen investigators worldwide who have been the only beacon of light in UFO research for 60 years.

JAR encourages writers from all walks of life and from all countries. JAR is very interested in non-US writers and readers. JAR is interested in new findings in abduction-encounter research, MILABS, book reviews, dramatically told accounts, interpretations of the meaning and significance of the extraterrestrial presence, and related topics. JAR is particularly interested in the question: “What do the flying saucer people want?” JAR will also publish articles by authors who do not believe the UFO phenomena is extraterrestrial.

JAR is interested in debate. JAR welcomes articles challenging the conclusions of previous articles. JAR welcomes ‘Letters to the Editor.’ And unlike most other publications, JAR is capable of publishing long articles.

Above all, JAR says to writers: think deeply and write from the heart. You have many years experiencing and reflecting on the UFO phenomena. Rely on your own perceptions and put them into words.

If you have something to say you think could make a good article for JAR, contact one of the JAR editors and present your idea in a thumbnail. You do not have to be a polished writer. We edit articles here.

JAR does not pay authors in cash. JAR does provide each author a one year subscription to the magazine.
