This 2013 paper introduces a methodology that incorporates information available on terrorist networks, into the analysis of social networks underlying terrorist groups.
This 2013 paper focuses on the modelling of terrorist networks online and addresses changes in technology and the associated creation of new security dynamics and threats.
This 2014 report by the International Centre for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence (ICSR) presents the findings of a 12-month study on the social media profiles of 190 Western and European foreign fighters.

This 2013 article analyzes content generated on Twitter during the attacks at the Boston Marathon in April 2013. The authors perform an in-depth characterization of what factors influenced malicious content and profiles becoming viral.
This 2010 article focuses on Social Network Analysis (SNA) and proposes a new generation of node centrality measures for weighted networks. The authors do this by building on previous research, which uses weights to operationalize tie strength between nodes within networks.
This 2012 article focuses on Social Network Analysis (SNA) and particularly the challenge of identifying central nodes within a given social network. The authors propose a new centrality measure for weighted networks based on the amoeboid algorithm, which is called Physarum centrality.
This 2014 article proposes an estimation method for relationship strength in weighted social network graphs. The authors argue that their method can fully estimate the relationship strength between any two users in a social network, whether they are directly connected or not.
This portal gathers an annotated collection of recent research on the ways in which social media and new technologies may be leveraged in the fight against violent extremism
