Open Minds Magazine announced the launch of its new digital edition – a mobile, searchable, and web-based version of the print magazine. The digital edition is a new way to expand Open Minds’ global reach and grow its international readership.
Open Minds Magazine is a bi-monthly publication focusing on exploring the true nature of the UFO phenomenon in terms of its history, evidence and its enormous sociopolitical and scientific implications. Open Minds is presented objectively with a focus on the facts, yet the publication is destined to change our current outlook on UFOs – an outlook that has been affected for decades by the stigma of ridicule and a relentless process of misinformation and disinformation by the mainstream media.
“The digital edition is interactive in a way that print will never be,” says Maureen Elsberry, Marketing Director of Open Minds. “We’re able to link to exclusive content on the web as well as relevant videos and radio interviews and pop them directly into the articles.”
Open Minds worked with BlueToad, Inc. to bring the UFO news magazine to the public in an extraordinary format that goes far beyond the printed publication. Each issue has been reimaged with vibrant, high-resolution images and zoom feature capabilities.
“Providing a digital edition to our valued readers has always been our goal” Elsberry stated. “It saves our international subscribers money on shipping and provides the interested reader with a greener option.”

Open Minds Magazine’s print version is available at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Krogers, Giant Eagle, select airports, and an abundance of other bookstores and markets.
Maureen Elsberry it’s nice to see Open Minds top executives are open to the public. Thank You for that. I’ve been writing comments on material at open minds magazine. Nearly all of my comments have made it through moderation. Most continue to be available on several different authors pages.
In the beginning we had difficulty doing some basic (word usage,spelling and paragraphs). Though people that follow my writing have enjoyed my comments. The people close to me didn’t even know it was me writing.
I was accused of plagiarism being in violation of stealing my material. When I asked her about the spelling errors and poor sentence structure She said “those were definitely your comments”. However the veteran English teacher said I “did a great job” on the articles after I discovered spell and grammar check built into my lap top has changed me from dummy to writer.
My question to you Maureen is my writing style easy to understand because there are vivid images of the material I write about? Is there a chance I’m good enough to use open mind as a platform for my materials?
Most important is my material gathered from around the world specifically in the U.S. It would be nice to here from the collective of professionals at Open Minds production. Some of the scenes that have unfolded in my life will draw a lot of attention. Some are brutal and mean and some compassionate and kind. All from out of this world.
I’m sure you will find these experiences unique some nice and some will freeze you in fear. I’m interested in the theological connection to ets’. Also my experience in abduction cant be beat. I want to get my story out there.
It would be nice to comment but I need a mentor
and a guidance counselor. What topics would you like to cover? Please e-mail me if I even have a chance to contribute in any way just to give a disabled guy some extra cash. Congratulations on your new digital offering
of the magazine Maureen this sounds like the perfect format to launch my writing career.
How very refreshing your magazine appears! it is long overdue. Some of us out here have been at it so long that it seems UFO research is like a crooked stick. Every decade or so the staff which we thought was going straight and narrow to some purposeful place takes a sharp bend into fundamental religion, lop-sided politics (or both )and every known conspiracy that lurks in the dark corners of men’s hearts and minds. But it keeps growing and eventually straightens out and, I believe, is nurtured by the good things in life including the search for knowledge, love, and above all ,hope.
So much for the philosophy, Maureen. I noted on the cover of one of your old magazines that famous photo from the Albuquerque Journal of Lonnie Zamora, Hector Quintanilla ( of project Blue Book ) and who appears to be someone from the intelligence community. I knew Lonnie who is gone now and I did work with Donald Keyhoe of NICAP in the late 1950s. ( NICAP was very interested in this case also.) It was the only reputable civilian investigative agency in those days. I went into teaching myself in 1959 (art, football, and eventually counseling, school administration and finally photography). I retired 30 years later in 1989.
Don Keyhoe and I were reasonably close for a time. He sent me in 1968 or so the complete USAAF transcript of the Zamora investigation some one had leaked to him.
It goes five single spaced, capital letter pages with a map and numbered sentences. Would you like a copy for your files?
If you want to know a little about our work, you might peek at my website. I learned about your organization with John Rao’s support of the metals analysis from the UFO crash on The Plains of San Augustin. His support of Steve Colbern’s research has changed a hypothetical crash site into a very probable one. We are very grateful for his help. I have been intimately involved in this site since 1994.
I would like to offer any of my material going back to Kehoe, an investigation of George Adamski, through The Plains of San Augustin investigation of the 1990s, to 2010 or so. Let me know if I can be of assistance to you in any historical sense.
