"Mainstream Science on Intelligence" is a 1994 editorial written by Linda Gottfredson and published in the Wall Street Journal on December 13. It was a list of 25 statements which upheld many of the findings in intelligence research discussed in The Bell Curve. The frequently-cited piece was reprinted in Intelligence in 1997 with additional information on its creation, the response, and a bibliography.

Roughly a third of the 52 signatories , including Gottfredson, have received grants from the Pioneer Fund. The Bell Curve controversy also prompted a report on the field from a task force of the American Psychological Association, titled "Intelligence: Knowns and Unknowns."
