Publication Venues: Journals and Blogs
Below is a listing of the top ten journals that have published articles on the intersections of extremism and/or terrorism and the Internet. The H Index numbers are taken from the Scimago Journal & Country Rank and the journal descriptions from their home pages. The top ten has been developed from an analysis of VOX-Pol’s Online Library.
For a detailed listing and accompanying analysis of those journals accepting submissions on violent online political extremism and related, see the VOX-Pol blog post Where to Publish Academic Research on Online Extremism and Terrorism?: What We Can Learn from Journal Article Entries in VOX-Pol’s Online Library.
The Blog listing is divided into a section on extremism and terrorism-specific Blogs and those with a broader remit that nonetheless routinely publish on extremism and terrorism, including online; both are arranged alphabetically. The Blog descriptors are largely drawn from their home pages. Have suggestions for other Blogs that you think should be included? Drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
