The scholarly communication system with respect to terrorism research is an open one, since the flow of information is mostly from external, namely government, documents and media sources, towards the scientific community. In disciplines that are already established in academia, the scholarly communication system is a closed one: the information flows from the academic publication toward the popular press. If the study of terrorism became a closed information system, it could help the process of the maturation of this field into autonomous academic research discipline.
