We look forward to another 20 years serving our country through providing guidance in the world of science and technology policy and innovation. Please enjoy one of our 20 interesting facts today:

This academic effort was initially developed in 1998 as an on-line follow-up to Terrorism: An International Journal, published in 1977 and founded by director of the State University of New York (SUNY) Institute for Studies in International Terrorism, Prof. Yonah Alexander.

In its current form, Terrorism: An Electronic Journal & Knowledge Base was launched again in August 2012 in order to provide continuity to earlier studies on the “Age of Terrorism” and to close research gaps in the growing literature on the manifold aspects of the emerging disciplinary subject. Professor Alexander’s primary objective is to focus on identifying warning signals of conventional and unconventional terrorism in the post 9/11 era and recommend national, regional, and global strategies to confront potential security challenges to all societies.

This electronic resource provides a wealth of information including news articles, selected seminar reports, transcripts of events, daily terrorism updates, and scholarly analysis on vital topics impacting security and counterterrorism efforts. Terrorism: An Electronic Journal & Knowledge Base has been named a core journal for terrorism research by the Terrorism Research Initiative and a resource for global terrorism research by the National Consortium for the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism.
