- A Word document that provides a template for writing ODDs: https://ees4760.jgilligan.org/files/odd/Grimm_2010_odd_template.docx
- Lists of scientific publications using agent-based and individual-based models that either do or don’t use the ODD protocol (this appeared as Appendix 1 of the Grimm et al. paper): https://ees4760.jgilligan.org/files/odd/Grimm_2010_appendix_1.pdf, https://ees4760.jgilligan.org/files/odd/ch3_ex1_pubs_with_no_ODD.pdf, https://ees4760.jgilligan.org/files/odd/ch3_ex2_pubs_with_ODD.pdf.
