Lists of Journals, Newsletters, Periodicals Surveyed.
The journals, newsletters and periodicals cited below were surveyed in the following manner. List 1 contains publications investigated from their initial publication date up through December 1977. Over the years, they have been outlets for material on spirit possession and spirit mediumship. List 2 includes publications which were surveyed only when we had references from other sources to articles which they contained. Upon surveying the publications in List 3, no relevant topical materials on spirit possession and spirit mediumship were uncovered. We investigated these publications in hopes of finding material on spirit possession and spirit mediumship which may previously have escaped scholarly notice. These publications, however, did not yield relevant information. They are cited herein so that the scholar may avoid an unproductive search.
