Magonia (Journal)

Magonia (Journal)

Quarterly journal concerned with anomalies, such as visions, portents, prodigies, and UFOs. The name "Magonia" was given in medieval France to a mysterious land beyond the sky, the origin of all kinds of signs and wonders but inextricably bound up with the destinies of human beings. Inhabitants of Magonia traveled in aerial ships and were believed to destroy crops and kidnap human beings. The emperor Charlemagne issued edicts to prohibit the Magonians from troubling the air and provoking storms.

Issues of Magonia have covered such subjects as glossolalia, ouija boards, pagan occultism, coincidences, Spiricom, earth lights, psychic research, Bigfoot, and other Fortean topics. Address: John Rimmer, John Dee Cottage, 5 James Terrace, Mortlake Churchyard, London, SW14 8HB England. Website: http://www.magonia.demon.co.uk/.

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:

Notes:
  • 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.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
