The Skeptics Society & Skeptic magazine


About the SRC

The Skeptic Research Center (SRC) is a collaboration with qualified researchers to release digestible single-topic analyses of proprietary polling and survey data, detailing peoples’ attitudes about the important concerns of our time. Our data is open-source for full transparency. Our goal is to empower you with an understanding of what your fellow citizens really believe and how they really behave.

Data and evidence are the bedrock of a skeptical and scientific worldview. By a convergence of data and evidence, we can reason our way to smarter solutions, more rational institutions, more just policies, and brighter futures. 

The skeptical movement, of which we are a part, stands in a long tradition dating back to the Scientific Revolution, the Age of Reason, and the Enlightenment, and carrying through into the 21st century with the application of empiricism and rationality to all aspects of the world, including the physical, biological, and social sciences.

As a non-profit science and educational organization, the Skeptics Society is committed to understanding and promoting the best scientific practices and the most illuminating findings of scientists around the world. Data and evidence are our best tools for diagnosing and remedying the many problems confronting society, from political polarization and income inequality to climate change and fake news. Since 1992 the Skeptics Society has been devoted to debunking bunk and junking junk science, along with responding to conspiracy theories and general ideological woo that seems to corrupt and cloud so much of our discourse.

Science is fundamentally a collaborative endeavor. Your contributions, whether concrete (i.e., monetary) or abstract (i.e., ideas) are important to us. There are many ways you can become involved or contribute to the Skeptic Research Center. Fund our studies. Provide feedback. Submit an idea by email.
