A.S.C. Study Monitor
The Altered States of Consciousness Study Monitor is a database of scientific and research publications concerning altered states of consciousness.
The ASC Study Monitor provides a platform for researchers, students and the public to freely access a regularly updated selection of quality academic papers. The aim of the Monitor is to ensure a free, comprehensive and reliable resource of information concerning altered states of mind.
Publications included in the ASC Study Monitor investigate mental states significantly different than ‘normal waking consciousness’. The Monitor encompasses interdisciplinary research on methods that alter the subjective experience through non-pharmacological methods, such as meditation or breathwork, as well as by means of natural and synthetic psychotropic substances. Moreover, it gathers publications exploring the “mind & brain sciences” and their links to culture and society.
ASC Study Monitor is constantly updated & evaluated
Publications are carefully evaluated and selected with the help of a criteria selection profile, which considers the relevance to study of ASCs and the reliability of the journal. The latter is established through several criteria, such as scientific journal rankings and exclusion of predatory journals. For open access articles, full texts are included in the database.
