Part of the Integrated Series in Information Systems book series (ISIS, volume 30)


In this chapter, we provide an overview of selected resources of relevance to “Terrorism Informatics,” a new discipline that aims to study the terrorism phenomena with a data-driven, quantitative, and computational approach. We first summarize several critical books that lay the foundation for studying terrorism in the new Internet era. We then review important terrorism research centers and resources that are of relevance to our Dark Web research. The Dark Web project has benefited significantly from their publications and ideas, and from interactions and collaboration with some of these terrorism study experts and scholars.
