Prof. Dr. Peter Sedlmeier, head of the Professorship of Research Methods and Evaluation in Psychology at the Institute of Psychology at Chemnitz University of Technology, has been conducting research on the topic of meditation for almost 20 years and is an internationally recognized expert in this field.

Now, under the title "The Psychology of Meditation," Peter Sedlmeier has presented the most comprehensive contribution to date to the current state of research on the forms and effects of meditation. "In recent years, a huge number of publications on meditation have appeared. For the most part, however, these are practical instructions, research contributions on almost always positive specific effects, or on special aspects of meditating," says Sedlmeier. There has not yet been a comprehensive contribution that summarizes and systematizes the current state of international research. In particular, the book addresses the theoretical underpinnings to date - from both Eastern and Western perspectives - and makes recommendations for further research.

We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.

AlphaGalileo is a great source of global research news. I use it regularly.
