CREST publications

journals and books

CREST-funded journal articles, book chapters and books have now been added to the website.

‘It’s not paranoia when they are really out to get you’: the role of conspiracy theories in the context of heightened securityCREST has long maintained access to all of our reports, guides, policy briefs, posters and other resources on our website. To this we have now created a new category in our resources page, ‘Articles and Books’, which includes all the journal articles, books, and book chapters to come out of CREST’s work.

Journal articles funded by CREST are available as open access and you’ll find abstracts of the article, book, or book chapter, along with author details and links to download the publication.

These resources are available in our catalogue (the latest version of which you can access here.). In the catalogue we split all resources under three themes to make it easier to access the topics you find of interest. View the publications by theme below or find them all here.
