Biosophia is one of two newsstand magazines serving the esoteric and psychic community of Portugal. It emerged in 1999 as a new periodical offering a new comprehensive view of life, the universe, and humanity. Biosophia is written in Portuguese and appears three times annually.

Each issue of Biosophia carries several feature articles relevant to its overall interests, which include such topics as theosophy, alternative science, astrology, holistic health, vegetarianism, and world peace. It also includes reviews of books and CDs. Biosophia is sponsored by the Centro Lusitano de Unificacao (Portuguese Center for a Unified Culture) headquartered in Lisbon. The Centro Lusitano is dedicated to solving those problems which it sees as most afflicting humanity and in that regard sponsors a variety of activities aimed at promoting the positive evolution of the species. It is assisted by GRACL, the Grupo de Amigos de Centro Lusitano (the Association of Friends of the Portuguese Center), and associated with the Curso de Naturologia, a naturopathic healing center in Lisbon that offers a range of naturopathic treatments including home-opathy and acupuncture.

The Centro Lusitano has placed peace as a keystone of its agenda, and each issue of Biosophia includes a supplementary insert concerning its proposals for a program of education and reconciliation in the cause of world peace. This topic has been focused on for the Portuguese in Portugal's former colonial possessions in the East Indies, especially what is now East Timor. The proposal calls for a comprehensive educational effort including a journal, communication through the Internet, and a school.

Biosophia is published three times annually from R. Pascoal de Melo, 4-1, 1170-294 Lisbon, Portugal.

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:
