Has anyone heard of the Society for Scientific Exploration and its publication the Journal of Scientific Exploration?

See http://www.scientificexploration.org/

If so then what is your impression of it?

Was a new one to me?

"Strategies for dissenting scientists" may give you some clue to what they are about?

Sorry, that link was broken. Try http://www.bmartin.cc/pubs/98jse.pdf instead.

But I don't know, the paper is right in a way, scientists are only humans. But the opposite is just as true, that if you're serious in your profession, you will use what knowledge comes your way to further yourself, and science. I think peer review gives good response and expect it to be truer measure of a papers validity than assumptions about people being scared to lose their positions. The best scientists are driven by curiosity and imagination, and those qualities is not narrow minded in my book.

but it do give you strategies, and seems rather competent. I think it will be a mix :)
Depends on your view of the world I would say, slightly meta physically.

I feel the same way. But I'm biased since I've had extrodinary experiences in which I saw things I can't explain to this day. It makes one more open minded.
