Statement of purpose[edit]

In the magazine's masthead, a statement of purpose is printed:

NEXUS recognises that humanity is undergoing a massive transformation. With this in mind, NEXUS seeks to provide 'hard-to-get' information so as to assist people through these changes. NEXUS is not linked to any religious, philosophical or political ideology or organisation.


The magazine was first formed in 1986 by Ramses H. Ayana as a quarterly publication covering human rights, the environment, alternative health, women's rights, New Age, Free Energy, alternative science and the paranormal. Co-founder of the magazine was Jenni Elf and both founders had previously worked on the independent Australian magazine Maggie's Farm. R. Ayana now publishes sites new illuminati and Her(m)etic Hermit. Nexus was handed on to Duncan Roads in 1990, continuing a long tradition of keeping alternative publications alive in Australia, regardless of monetary considerations. Following the handover, the topics covered by Nexus were changed and it moved to a bi-monthly publication schedule. Duncan Roads and his partner Catherine Simons have produced the magazine since then.


In 1997, the Stephen Roth Institute listed the Nexus website as one of the "main sites which contained or actively promoted anti-Semitism".[5]

More recently, the magazine has been criticized for supporting the claims of Jim Humble for his "Miracle Mineral Supplement" (MMS)[6] Humble has been a speaker at the Nexus conference.


The magazine's headquarters are located in Mapleton, Queensland, Australia. It is published in Australia, New Zealand, the USA, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Greece, Serbia, Croatia, Romania, and Russia. Nexus has also been translated in Swedish, Korean and Japanese.

In the USA and in Italy, the magazine is published as Nexus New Times. In Greece, the magazine was first published as Nexus and, following a period of inactivity, as New Times Nexus. The Polish edition is published as Nexus. Nowe Czasy (English: Nexus. New Times.), A Swedish edition was published between 1998 and 2000 with the title NEXUS Nya Tider.[7]
