Download The SPR's Free Quick Guides To Paranormal Investigation
People will often tell you that there's no such thing as an expert when it comes to the paranormal, that we're all learning, and that there is no right or wrong when it comes to hunting ghosts. You might disagree with some of these statements, but it's safe to say that at the very least, there are some best practices that all paranormal investigators should be aware of.
Handily, the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) has released a collection of Investigator Quick Guides, making the guidance on paranormal investigation more accessible. The 13 double-sided, A4 pamphlets can be downloaded for free from SPR's website and are designed to be printed for future reference.
Covering everything from analysing pictures and sounds through to how to plan an investigation and record your findings, the quick guides are based on Steve Parsons' excellent books 'Guidance Notes for Investigators of Spontaneous Cases' and 'Using Equipment: Guidance Notes for Investigators of Apparitions, Hauntings, Poltergeists and Similar Phenomena'.
You might have read recommendations from us about SPR's 'Guidance Notes for Investigators' books before, because they are without a doubt one of the best sources of information for any paranormal investigator. The new quick guides contain the essential information from these publications for a range of topics which you can quickly refer to when necessary.
Each topic is available as a separate PDF which is clearly labelled. The 'Analysing Pictures' quick guide offers advice on objectively examining a picture that you have taken yourself or obtained from a third party, describing a similar rational approach to the methods provided in the 'Analysing Sounds' guide, which complements the guide specifically on 'Sound Recording'.
The collection also includes guides on gathering information ahead of an investigation, planning an investigation, interviewing witnesses, taking measurements, and caring for your equipment. There's also advice on working with electromagnetic fields (EMF), temperature, and why time matters.
The Investigator Quick Guides are designed to be printed on both sides of a single A4 (or A5) sheet of paper which can then be easily folded using a simple Z fold, creating a kit-bag sized leaflet. You can also download, store and access them electronically using a smartphone, laptop or tablet computer.
You can download and print your free copies of the guides now from the SPR website, or if you're looking to learn more about investigation methods or for more in-depth information about some pieces of equipment commonly used by investigators, then be sure to get a copy of the two separate editions of 'Guidance Notes for Investigators' either direct from the SPR or from Amazon.
