IGC publication policies

  • The IGC volume described above was organized by the core group and credits all participant-coordinators, team-members and the author(s) of all the work included.

  • We also expect IGC teams to have their own authored publication, intended for local and national audiences.  Each will need to reference the IGC's organizational contribution.  We will prepare appropriate content for that acknowledgment.

  • We also intend to widely share the results of the IGC collaboration via the internet and in a manner that enables each participant to have access to all results.


Intellectual property

We have had questions regarding issues of intellectual property.

  • Almost all participants in this collaboration are part of academic structures and while these do vary, they all have requirements and attitudes towards publication as part of normal academic career paths. The intent of this collaboration is to respect those variations not to superimpose any new requirements. The work produced by and in any institution will remain the responsibility of, and property of, those who produced it. The responsibility for publication rests with the producers.  We require that all participants will credit the collaborative IGC enterprise within which the work took place.

  • At the same time, the nature of this collaboration will also enable a wide variety of comparative assessments across geography and/or time, for example, comparing urban areas, comparing responses to a particular system, comparing geodesign methods from technological and human perspectives, etc.  In this circumstance, when we use of the work of others, we must credit the many producers whose work is being compared by a particular researcher.

  • There may also be innovations by technical contributors to the collaboration. These would belong to the innovators.

  • The overarching aim is open sharing for the common good.
