CREST Digest

CREST digest banner

CREST is committed to disseminating the best research on security threats, in formats that help practitioners understand how this research can help them do their jobs. A new resource we are launching today is the CREST Digest, which is a short research scan of published, peer-reviewed academic research.

The CREST Digest aims to provide a round-up of research relevant to understanding and countering security threats.

Every edition is broken down into summaries of the key research, including:

  • New research – a scan of the current research on security threats
  • Special issue feature – our featured article
  • Articles that caught our eye – other articles we think you’ll find of interest
  • New journal issues – the latest publications as well as new books
  • Beyond the peer-reviewed literature – reports from journalists, researchers, think tanks and governments

In our very first issue (read it here) we include research about popular lie detection (and why the techniques come under scrutiny) as well as the role of trust in deciding which terrorist faction to join, and we summarise the contents of a journal special issue on complex and ambitious engineering efforts by violent non-state actors. Do let us know what you think of our CREST Digest by visiting our contact page.
