Bibliography of Online Resources for the Study of Reincarnation

January 1, 2014

A great deal of serious reincarnation research has been posted online. This bibliography lists full-text articles and books on reincarnation which are available for free viewing and/or downloading. Most are PDF files, but a few are in HTML or TXT formats. The majority were originally published in journals or books, but a few original online reports are included.

The focus of the bibliography is on field-based studies of cases of apparent reincarnation by psychical researchers, but includes related contributions from other academic disciplines and perspectives. With occasional exceptions, entries are in English, but foreign-language sections are planned for the future.

YouTube and other video reports are not currently included, but will be added in a later edition.

The bibliography is updated periodically. Please send comments or suggested additions to jgmatlock@ymail.com. Entries are arranged in the following categories:
