We introduce the concept of pseudo-Bessel correlated beams and investigate their scintillation properties on propagation through turbulence. In weak turbulence the scintillation index of pseudo-Bessel correlated beams is formulated by using the Rytov approximation. The study of scintillation is extended to strong turbulence by numeric simulations. It is shown that by choosing an appropriate coherence parameter, pseudo-Bessel correlated beams have lower scintillation than comparable fully coherent beams in both weak and strong turbulence.
