Resources > Psychedelic Research Papers

This list contains a mix of original research and reviews of literature chiefly pertaining to psychedelic compounds (such as LSD and psilocybin) and MDMA, with a strong focus on research in humans.

The list is not intended to be comprehensive but to present a broad survey of the currently available literature and to introduce readers to the nature and scope of the literature. Readers may wish to investigate the reference lists of any paper that interests them to locate further reports.

Most reports are also available in PDF format through our Psychedelic Bibliography.
