Jeff Meldrum, Ph. D., has created a new journal.
The objective of the RHI is to promote research and provide a venue for the dissemination of scholarly peer-reviewed papers evaluating the possible existence and nature of relict hominoid species around the world.
A strictly on-line publication consists of a journal and biannual newsletter. The journal will contain primarily Research Articles with Commentary, as well as Letters & Responses, Brief Communications, Essays, News & Views, and Book Reviews. The webpage is hosted by the ISU server with the cooperation and assistance of Instructional Technology Resource Center (ITRC).
An editorial board, consisting of Ph.D.s or other-wise qualified professionals, is responsible for assisting with manuscript editing and reviewing in their respective area(s) of experience and expertise; assist in identifying willing, objective, and reputable outside reviewers and commentators; suggest appropriate topical areas to be addressed by the RHI journal and newsletter, and invite/solicit submissions to that end.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
