This paper describes open-source information monitoring and how we use it at the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) in the area of drug markets - what it is and, importantly, what it is not; the methodology for its use; what it can be used for; and its limitations. The EMCDDA first used this approach in 2016, to monitor for signs of serious and urgent health threats associated with new psychoactive substances, in order to support the work of the European Union Early Warning System. More recently, the technique has been extended to the area of European drug markets. This report describes how the EMCDDA uses open-source information monitoring, and presents the initial findings of a pilot project looking at how to improve the timeliness and quality of data with relevance to the analysis of European drug markets - specifically with reference to data on heroin and cocaine seizures of 100 kg or more for the European market between April 2017 and March 2018. The report offers insights and recommendations for continued monitoring, which have implications for policy and practice as well as applications to other areas of the EMCDDA's work.
