The National Counter Terrorism Command, UK police forces and academia are behind an Open Source Communications, Analytics and Research (OSCAR) Development Centre. Co-ordinated through Cardiff University’s Universities’ Police Science Institute (UPSI), the new centre will bring together academics and police practitioners to develop a research evidence base on the use of open source information – public data that can be accessed without covert methods or interception.

Phi Beta Iota: This is a well-intentioned initiative. It is highly likely they will completely overlook twenty five years of effort by thousands of others.
