Gauquelin Data
C.U.R.A. (The University Center for Astrological Research ) has made available all of the Gauquelins' data, corrected and updated from the long- out-of-print laboratory monographs. All data is in text form suitable for use as fixed-length ASCII files. Also included is the introductory and explanatory text from the original monographs. The C.U.R.A. site also publishes a voluminous amount of material covering a wide range of astrological issues and interests.
Astrodatabank The best researched and most comprehensive astrological database available, with emphasis on contemporary subjects. Check out Astrodatbank software, which allows you to query the database, including astrological and biographical parameters. The software includes Gauquelin sectors along with other astrological parameters.
Suitbert Ertel An extensive collection of work by the late Professor of Psychology. Much of what you will find here was previously hidden behind paywalls, published in obscure journals, or available only in low quality PDFs. Ertel broke new ground in various areas of research, and so this is not something you want to miss.
The Journal of Scientific Exploration This publication explores issues at the edge of science, but with a scientific rigor rarely displayed in so-called skeptic publications. Check out abstracts for the article by Ertel and Irving on Biased Data Selection in Mars Effect Research, with a reply by Kurtz, Nienhuys and Sandhu, Is the Mars Effect Genuine? , and a final rejoinder by Ertel and Irving The Mars Effect is Genuine - On Kurtz, Nienhuys, and Sandhu's Missing the Evidence More to the point, read the articles themselves in the order given above. This was an exhange initiated by Ertel and myself with Kurtz et al ("Biased Data Selection..."), based on new evidence of selection bias in CSICOP's controversy-ridden study of the Mars effect for sports champions. The Kurtz rejoinder ("Is the Mars Effect Genuine") is often posted by itself on skeptic sites and publications without the context (much less the mention) of our first article, and our follow-up ("The Mars Effect is Genuine"). PS - As I am reworking planetos.org over the next few months, the information in this link will be expanded to relate the "bias coverup" incident in more detail.  
Correlation Journal This journal is unique in several ways. as it "publishes and supports research and developments in astrology relating to philosophy, social science, psychology, techniques and all areas of the arts and sciences." It has a long history that began with a stretch from 1968 to 1970, and has been in continuous publication since 1981. More to the point: If you subscribe to Correlation, you will have access to PDFs of all published issues. Can't beat that.
Jim Lippard's Mars-Effect Chronology This is a direct link to a text file that provides a great deal of carefully vetted historical information here about the Mars effect controversy. The site as a whole, discord.org, also makes for some interesting reading.
Astrology & Science Skeptical articles on astrology, with emphasis on the writing and opinions of Geoffrey Dean. The last time we checked, the cross link to this site returned only an error message. No argument about the need for update, but for the rest, readers may form their own judgments.
