Call for Bibliography Update

Dear System Dynamics Community Member:

The System Dynamics Society is continuing the effort to update our bibliography. In order to make the bibliography as comprehensive as possible, we are asking you for help in compiling a retrospective reference list.  Journal articles, monographs and dissertation bibliographic references are needed.  All of the articles and related bibliographic references from the System Dynamics Review, Society Conference Proceedings, the System Dynamics Society Newsletter and the Systems Thinker are already included in the bibliography and do not need to be submitted.

If you are an author or editor, please send your publication list so we can check our current database for completeness.  If you are the head of a firm, academic department or other organization, please send the organization’s publication list, including all dissertations and published research reports.  If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Society office at the address listed below.

All bibliographical formats will be accepted; electronic submissions are preferred.  The preferred language is English, but all titles will be included if they deal specifically with the fields of system dynamics and systems thinking.  Transliterations of titles not in English would be appreciated.  Please include the name, address, and email address of a contact person in case of questions.

JOURNAL ARTICLES should include at least the author(s)’ full name, the title, year, journal title, volume, issue number, starting and ending pages and keywords that are not included in the title.  Other useful information would include an abstract and the journal’s ISSN.

MONOGRAPHS should include the author(s)’ full name, the title, year, edition number, city of publication, publisher, number of pages, number of volumes, keywords and ISSN.

REPORTS, working papers and the like should include the same information as for a monograph, plus the name of the agency or firm responsible and any report ID number.

CHAPTERS should include the same information as for a monograph, as well as the chapter title, author/editor, and starting and ending pages.

DISSERTATIONS should include the author(s)’ full name, year, title, university, number of pages and type of theses (MS, PhD, etc.).

Please send your submissions to the Society office at:
