The Society for Scientific Exploration (SSE) is a multi-disciplinary professional organization of scientists and other scholars committed to the rigorous study of unusual and unexplained phenomena that cross traditional scientific boundaries and may be ignored or inadequately studied within mainstream science.

The Society was founded in 1982 by fourteen scientists and scholars and now has approximately 800 members in 45 countries worldwide. The SSE publishes a peer reviewed journal, the Journal of Scientific Exploration (JSE) and holds annual scientific meetings in the USA and periodic meetings in Europe. Society members include scholars from a broad range of disciplines. Topics addressed in its journal and in its regular meetings cover a wide spectrum, ranging from real or apparent anomalies in well-established areas of science to paradoxical phenomena that belong to no established discipline.

This unique multidisciplinary perspective provides challenging opportunities for creative professional dialog and innovative research. In addition to the Journal and the Annual Meetings, the SSE supports a Young Investigators Program. This program is designed and implemented primarily by its participants, and its purpose is to provide information and resources pertaining to the scholarly study of anomalous phenomena and other frontier areas of science. An informal discussion in which many members participate can be found in the SSE Yahoo Group.
