About the Repository

The Jihadi Document Repository was created in 2016 by the Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI) in cooperation with the University of Oslo. The purpose of the Repository is to encourage academic research on militant Islamism, by making available a large collection of jihadist primary sources gathered by the FFI’s Terrorism Research Group since 1999.


A majority of the primary sources have been downloaded from websites affiliated with the global jihadist movement, most of which no longer exist today. The material has been vetted by FFI's experienced team of researchers and only documents regarded as authentic have been included in the Repository.  


The Jihadi Document Repository is a non-profit venture and access to the collection is free of charge. However, due to the sensitive nature of some of the material, access to the Repository is limited to registered users only. To apply for registration, please send an e-mail to terrorism@ffi.no stating your full name, institutional affiliation and research interests. Upon approval, you will receive a username and password giving you full access to the Repository.


If you use any of the material in the collection, please include a reference to the Jihadi Document Repository at FFI/UiO, Oslo.
