In this paper we describe the roadmapping method- ology we developed in the context of the CyberROAD EU FP7 project, whose aim is to develop a research roadmap for cybercrime and cyber terrorism. To this aim we built on state-of-the-art methodologies and available guidelines, including related projects, and adapted them to the peculiarities of our roadmapping subject. In particular, its distinctive feature is that cybercrime and cyber terrorism co-evolve with their contextual environment (i.e., technology, society, politics and economy), which poses specific challenges to a roadmapping effort. Our approach can become a best practice in the field of cybersecurity, and can be also generalised to phenomena that exhibit a similar, strong co-evolution with their contextual environment. We aim to describe here the roadmapping methodology that will lead to the roadmap but not the roadmap itself (this one being, incidentally , still under construction at the time of writing this paper).
