Global Terrorism Analysis is produced by The Jamestown Foundation. Since September 11, 2003, Jamestown has been publishing Terrorism Monitor, a bi-weekly journal providing in-depth, objective analysis on al-Qaeda and the War on Terror. Jamestown has continually expanded on its coverage of terrorism and security issues, utilizing indigenous sources and with attention paid to frequently un-reported or under-reported topics. Spotlight on Terror is our occasional publication with interviews, special features or analysis of breaking news. Terrorism Focus began publication in August 2004 as a bi-weekly complement to Terrorism Monitor, and has since found a niche in providing timely, weekly analysis on events in global terrorism, with extensive translations and assessments of jihad on the web.
