Abstract

This chapter provides an introduction to and overview of the knowledge commons research framework.

The research framework supplies a template for interrogating the details of knowledge commons institutions on a case study basis, generating qualitative data that may be used to support comparative analysis.

Keywords: knowledge commons, commons in the cultural environment, information commons, cultural commons, science commons, data commons, knowledge pools, intellectual property, property, governance
