'Governing Medical Knowledge Commons is a very interesting and useful book, and I am delighted to say so! Innovation development is increasingly becoming open and distributed over time. Whether and how the fruits of this openly revealed activity can be collected and efficiently utilized as a commons is a very important next question. Strandburg, Frischmann, and Madison greatly help further progress via this collection of very thoughtful studies on pioneering medical commons models and trials.' Eric von Hippel, T. Wilson Professor in Management, Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
'This volume builds on Elinor Ostrom's research on the commons. Understanding the institutions that promote cooperation is critical to good governance and improving social welfare. The authors in this volume provide case studies of governance in the medical commons. The insights are pathbreaking and will lead to better policies for medical research. Moreover, the insights here will be synergistic to research in other areas of governance of commons.' Lee J. Alston, Director of the Ostrom Workshop, Indiana University, Bloomington
'This book makes significant advances on a decades-long research agenda through which Elinor Ostrom and other commons researchers uncovered the reasons behind the often surprising success of community-based management of natural resources. Contributors to this volume demonstrate that their concept of 'commons as a mode of governance' goes well beyond standard protections for intellectual property rights to integrate collaborative practice into the very heart of innovation in medical research and treatment. Case studies detail several impressive and diverse examples of this powerful synthesis of research and practice, and the editors conclude with practical lessons for how we might achieve comparable levels of improvement in other areas.' Michael D. McGinnis, Associate Dean, College of Arts and Sciences, and former Director, Ostrom Workshop, Indiana University, Bloomington
This book supplies evidence that policymakers, researchers, and designers need to develop strategies for producing better innovation and systems of information production. The book's knowledge commons concept offers a systematic way of understanding institutions for knowledge sharing, with fifteen new case studies in the medical and health sciences context. The book is also available as Open Access.
