The Meta Research Bulletin (MRB) is published four times a year, about mid-month in March, June, September, and December. The publisher is Meta Research, Inc. The editor and author of all articles not otherwise credited is astronomer Tom Van Flandern. Articles may be popular, semi-technical, or technical in style; but writing for the broadest possible readership is strongly encouraged. Permission to reprint articles will usually be given upon request as long as the source is credited.

See the Index of Past Issues for a complete list of past articles plus links to a few available online. Beginning with Volume 16, the 2007 March 15 issue, the electronic Bulletin is open access. The PDF version is usually several megabytes, but is suitable for printing on a home or office printer. Subscriptions to the print edition of the Bulletin are available for $24 per year (4 issues) for U.S. & Canada, $29 in for other countries. Memberships are supporting contributions to the research, separate from subscriptions: Supporting $25/year, Sustaining $50/yr, Patron ³$100/yr. Single back issues of the print bulletin may be purchased for $2 each.

Pertinent articles and discussion of published articles are welcome. Preferred formats are Microsoft Word, RTF, or ASCII. Appropriateness for the Bulletin is at the discretion of the editor; but if accepted, articles will be published without significant editing of content, except for constraints on overall length. A response by the editor or a referee may then also be published. The first author is shown any such response and offered the opportunity to adjust his contribution in the light of the response. If time permits, this process is iterated until all parties are satisfied. Until the publication deadline, authors have the option to defer publication to a later issue to complete this process.

Do you want to receive the leading publication for replacement models in astronomy today? The Meta Research Bulletin (MRB) predicted each of these phenomena before they were subsequently discovered:

  • Satellites of asteroids
  • Satellites of comets
  • Salt water in comets and meteorites
  • Boulders and roll marks from decayed moons on Eros
  • Best times and rates for meteor showers and storms

The MRB has developed a reputation for clear explanations of puzzles and anomalies and fair, controlled tests of models throughout the field of astronomy, as well as for pointing out flaws and providing new interpretations for mainstream models. See a list of titles of published MRB papers. These included first mention of experimental evidence for the speed of gravity, hi-res pictorial evidence for artifacts structures and vegetation on Mars, explosion mechanisms for the exploded planet hypothesis, and many other original works, complete with citations, observational evidence, and predictions to distinguish competing models. It is written in a semi-technical style, but generally without equations, readable by science-interested laypersons.

Regular subscriptions (four quarterly printed issues) are $24-$29, and may be ordered through our on-line store via a variety of payment options. Below is an old ad for the Bulletin published in 2003.
