Guidelines for Re-Using Beyond Intractability, CRInfo, and MOOS Resources

Low-Cost Textbooks

We ask educators who use Beyond Intractability as a major part of their courses or training programs to ask their students / trainees to donate roughly half of the cost of a comparable textbook. (For example, we ask our students to donate $5-$30 depending upon the amount of material used.) More information is available on our Using BI as a Textbook page.

Knowledge base resources are available for general use in accordance with the following principles. Our goal is to create an open-source version of the field's principal ideas.

  • Anyone can freely link to any knowledge base resource.
  • The materials may not be sold for profit, though they can be used in training materials that are sold as part of a fee-for-service training program. (A royalty fee may apply. Please submit an inquiry.)
  • Anyone may quote knowledge base resources. However, quoted sections must be presented in their original form, and they must be clearly cited.
  • Short quotations that fall within the standard, "fair use" guidelines are, of course, acceptable.
  • For all other uses, a royalty fee may apply. Please submit an inquiry.
