A research centre from the Institute of Criminal Justice Studies, University of Portsmouth, examining the research into missing persons.

Publications hub

Welcome to the CSMP hub. This hub provides links to various resources on missing persons which you may find of use in undertaking your work or studies.

The resources provided encompass a mix of freely available resources and others you will need to purchase from the publisher. Students and academics may access some of these resources via your Athens or Shibboleth account.

We hope that as you discover useful resources yourself you will inform us of new and relevant publications in this area so we can add them for the benefit of all. Please email us with any suggestions on csmp@port.ac.uk.
