Rhine Research Center

The Rhine Research Center is a nonprofit organization devoted to parapsychological research and education. Established as the Foundation for Research on the Nature of Man in 1962 by J. B. Rhine and renamed in 1995, the RRC comprises two subsidiaries: The Institute for Parapsychology and Parapsychology Press. The institute is the research arm of the RRC, and its staff conducts experimental research into the apparently psychic (psi) functions of extrasensory perception (ESP) and psychokenisis (PK). As the designated successor to Rhine's famous Duke University Parapsychology Laboratory, the institute maintains access to all records and other properties acquired by that laboratory during its three decades at Duke. The Parapsychology Press publishes the Journal of Parapsychology, a professional quarterly. Recognized worldwide as a cornerstone of the professional parapsychological community, the RRC serves the lay public as a reliable resource of authoritative information on psi research. The center is supported through private funding and is sustained in part by memberships. It is currently directed by Richard S. Broughton, 402 N. Buchanan Blvd., Durham, NC 27701-1728.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
