Terrorism studies and the struggle for primary data
from University of Oslo via Phys.org
From the 1980s to the present day, many of the field's most influential scholars have lamented that a majority of articles rely on literature review-based methodologies and do not present any new, first-hand insights. Instead of authors talking with (former) terrorists, perusing the archives of counter-terrorism agencies, administering psychological tests to extremists, or engaging in fieldwork, they have mostly resorted to talking among themselves.
