AMRA Library 

Downloadable database


We provide a scientific database of academic publication references on mindfulness from a contemplative psychology and practice perspective. The AMRA Library warehouses this compendium of references that can be downloaded for personal use with your reference management program such as Endnote. File types provided include “.xml” for Endnote users and “.rtf” for viewing and editing without the need for a software program. The database can be accessed by AMRA members only. AMRA does not provide assistance with reference programs. Tutorials for reference management software programs can be found online.

Scientific Bulletin 

Mindfulness Research Monthly


We provide access to a highly popular bulletin which serves to inform mindfulness research and practice. The Mindfulness Research Monthly, in publication since 2010, is the monthly research bulletin of the American Mindfulness Research Association. This publication provides a comprehensive collection of new research in the field in an effort to build awareness of and inform the latest scientific advances in mindfulness, and to gain new insights regarding the effects of mindfulness practice. Since its inaugural issue, archives to Mindfulness Research Monthly remain free as a service to the public.

We provide access to a list of selected publicly available research reviews and meta-analyses that report on the evidence base for mindfulness research and practice.


We provide access to a list of scales that are used to measure mindfulness. Examples of measurement scales include the Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS) and the Five Facet Mindfulness Questionnaire (FFMQ).


We provide access to a list of formalized programs in the United States and internationally that conduct mindfulness research and/or have an ongoing mindfulness teacher training program.


AMRA recognizes and supports the early career development of promising mindfulness researchers and teachers.
