Bibliographic Updates: Recent Journal Articles Related to System Dynamics

Please send us your new publications in peer-reviewed journals so we can add them to this updates list. We also invite you to send articles of any age to be included on the list and in our Bibliography. The articles will remain on this page until the next bi-annual update of the Bibliography. Please send your information to [email protected].

Also, please visit the current issue and the early view page of the System Dynamics Review to stay up-to-date with the Society’s journal. The Society offers an all-inclusive list of articles in the System Dynamics Review.


Entries are now listed with the most recent submissions at the top of the list.
