Governing Knowledge Commons


Add your own review!

Overview

Knowledge commons describes the institutionalized community governance of the sharing and, in some cases, creation, of information, science, knowledge, data, and other types of intellectual and cultural resources. It is the subject of enormous recent interest and enthusiasm with respect to policymaking about innovation, creative production, and intellectual property. Taking that enthusiasm as its starting point, Governing Knowledge Commons argues that policymaking should be based on evidence and a deeper understanding of what makes commons institutions work. It offers a systematic way to study knowledge commons, borrowing and building on Elinor Ostrom's Nobel Prize-winning research on natural resource commons. It proposes a framework for studying knowledge commons that is adapted to the unique attributes of knowledge and information, describing the framework in detail and explaining how to put it into context both with respect to commons research and with respect to innovation and information policy. Eleven detailed case studies apply and discuss the framework exploring knowledge commons across a wide variety of scientific and cultural domains.

Reviews

Governing Knowledge Commons comes at the right time with the right mix of case studies for inferences on when, how, and for how long, commons institutions can provide production incentives while mitigating those for free riding. Increasingly, advances in knowledge, research, and solutions to economic and social problems occur where individual property rights are absent. Common property institutions can make productive cooperation possible, and this volume helps in understanding the linkages between the commons and creativity. -Gary D. Libecap, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management, Economics Department, University of California, Santa Barbara, and National Bureau of Economic Research The editors and contributing authors for this work are leaders in the movement to create a better understanding of knowledge commons governance, which holds the promise of leading to greatly improved innovation economics and processes. They are to be commended for creating this really excellent collection. -Eric von Hippel, T. Wilson Professor of Innovation Management, MIT Sloan School of Management
