The ALIUS Bulletin is an annual publication featuring in-depth interviews with prominent scholars working on consciousness and its altered states (ASCs). The goal of the Bulletin is to present a clear outline of current research on ASCs across a variety of disciplines, with an emphasis on empirical work. It also aims at dispelling the widespread stigma that still plagues the notion of ASC, while allowing a wider audience to discover rigorous scientific work on the topic presented by authors in their own words.
