The one cornerstone present in each scientific discipline is an industry or trade journal. Leading journals with the status of medicine's Journal of the American Medical Association and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer's various trade journals, the hospitality industry's Hotelier, law enforcement's Journal of California Law Enforcement, and many more, allow for one-stop-shopping for peer review and education within their industry-specific disciplines.
To be valuable, a trade journal must exhibit the processes of peer review. By thoroughly, publicly, and respectfully subjecting a colleague's scholarly work, research or ideas to the evaluation and scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, new and innovative ideas can be vetted and expanded upon. Such a painstaking process would thus increase the validity of UFO research and it's acceptance by the mainstream scientific community. By achieving such recognition, the growing synergy experienced by Ufology would be escalated by the addition of an increasing number of diverse, formerly strict mainstream researchers.
A contribution for every educational stage of Ufology, from beginner through intermediate to advanced, will greatly benefit the competence of the individual researcher and investigator, thereby investing in the growing contribution each individual can make to the science of Ufology.
By expanding the publication limitations by publishing on the World Wide Web, every researcher and investigator can readily access and benefit by a publication that encourages innovation and connects the brilliant intellects devoted to the study of UFOs.
The premier historical, educational, and case study online publication in Ufology, the Journal of Frontier Science (JFS) will provide a dynamic contribution to the Ufologist. Nowhere will a Ufologist find the quality and the benefit to be found within the pages of JFS.
This publication has high hopes. My goal in publishing such as this is, in plain English, to cultivate and enhance the general level of training and research exponentially and to engender a synergy geared toward solving each and every mystery embodied within Ufology. By making JFS available to everyone free of charge, by bringing together the great minds with the novice and promising Ufologist, I hope JFS provides a meaningful, insightful, and innovative contribution to all.
