BUFORA is a non-cultist and scientifically evaluative organisation since its formation in 1962 when a number of UFO
research organisations and individuals formed with an inaugural meeting at Kensington, London.

These included societies such as the British Flying Saucer Bureau and the London UFO Research organisation, early magazine producers and individual investigators.

The BUFORA Journal was produced from 1962 and under various titles, was the mainstay of contact for members until the website took over exclusively in 2005. A magazine format may return in the future.

Hundreds of cases have been published in the journal and special study booklets have been produced in over half a
century of ongoing focus on all aspects of the UFO phenomenon.

Conferences have been staged since the 1960s at regular frequencies, with our fiftieth anniversary staged in London in 2012.

BUFORA continues to be a major contributor and consultant to news, documentaries and articles over the decades, with many prominent UFO authors as part of its team throughout its history.

Since the 1970s, the association has run a specialist training course in investigations. BUFORA also formed a code of practice for investigators which continues into the present, with all reports lead by the witness in every case.

Special studies include ongoing data collection, such as the Amnamnesis project and Vehicle Interference Reports.
BUFORA adopts an open and analytical view to all cases and report categories and continues to explore the UFO phenomena with an open mind, with no belief systems or exclusive theories in its continuing investigations.
An excellent introduction to the UFO subject can be found on the tab:
