Flying Saucer Review

Flying Saucer Review

Quarterly British publication on UFOs. The Flying Saucer Review was founded in 1955 in London by Derek Dempster, a former Royal Air Force pilot. Under the editorship of Brinsley le Poer Trench (1956-59) it developed a reputation as an uncritical periodical, but during the tenure of Charles Bowen it became one of the most influential journals serving the UFO community. Bowen retired because of illness in 1982 and was succeeded by Gordon Creighton. Creighton, influenced by various conspiracy theories, has aliented many in the UFO establishment who no longer consider the Flying Saucer Review a serious UFO organ.

Learn more about citation styles

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:
