Resources

The work of the institute is best appreciated through the resources provided her in the form of Methods and Publications. It is important to note that these resources are representative of our areas of interest but are in no way comprehensive. It is our intention to develop these resources as we engage in new areas of work. We will also increase the depth of coverage by including more of our previous work and by referring to the work of other people that we find interesting and useful. In this way we would hope that these Resources become useful in sharing and disseminating a better understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of knowledge development in the 21st Century.
