1   Link   Ecological models based on people’s knowledge: a multi-step fuzzy cognitive mapping approach
Maybe the best start into FCM for socio ecological questions. It is an introduction to the main concepts. indices and possibilities of FCM. We really recomment reading this article.
2   Link   Open access articles by Uygar Özesmi
Here you get a list of selected open access artikels by Uygar Özesmi. Most of them will give you greater insight into the method and the possibilities of FCM.
3   Link   JASSS - Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation
An interdisciplinary journal for the exploration and understanding of social processes by means of computer simulation.
4   Link   Ecology & Society
Tags: Social-ecological-systems, sustainability, open access,

The journal is concerned with the relationship between society and the life-supporting ecosystems on which human wellbeing ultimately depends. Content of the journal ranges from the applied to the theoretical. In general, papers should cover topics relating to the ecological, political, and social foundations for sustainable social-ecological systems.
5   Link   A Review of Tools for Incorporating Community Knowledge, Preferences, and Values into Decision Making in Natural Resources Management
Tags: open access, tools, participation, resource managment

We survey and evaluate selected participatory tools that have been proven effective in natural resources management and research during our extensive experience with forest communities. We first establish a framework for our analysis by identifying a set of criteria for evaluating each tool. Next we provide a brief description of each tool, followed by an evaluation and comparison of the strengths and weaknesses of all the tools examined and how well they can be adapted to diverse contexts. We also provide suggestions for avoiding common pitfalls. Our findings suggest that most tools are flexible enough to be adapted to a range of applications, and that results are more robust when tools are used in concert. Practitioners should not be disturbed when results are contradictory or unexpected; initial surprises can lead to unexpected discoveries. Given the complexity of natural resources and their management, picking the right tool does not guarantee that the data desired will be produced, but selecting the wrong tool does make success less likely. The tools assessed are Bayesian belief networks and system dynamic modeling tools, discourse-based valuation, the 4Rs framework, participatory mapping, scoring or the Pebble Distribution Method, future scenarios, spidergrams, Venn diagrams, and Who Counts Matrices.
6   Link   Fuzzy Reasoning and Fuzzy Optimization
Tags: Webbook, Fuzzy logic

"Many decision-making task are too complex to be understood quantitatively, however, humans
succeed by using knowledge that is imprecise rather than precise." A 232 pages book about application of fuzzy logic. - I did not read it until now - reviews are welcome...

8   Link   Social Network Analysis with sna (R)
tags: social network analysis, tool, software, R,
Modern social network analysis|the analysis of relational data arising from social
systems|is a computationally intensive area of research. Here, we provide an overview of
a software package which provides support for a range of network analytic functionality
within the R statistical computing environment. General categories of currently supported
functionality are described, and brief examples of package syntax and usage are shown.
Keywords: social network analysis, graphs, sna, statnet, R.
9   Link   IHDP Working Paper No. 2: The Problem of Fit between Ecosystems and Institutions

Authors: Oran R. Young
Type: IHDP Workingpaper

Young and Underdal (1997) describe the issue in the following way: ”The
problem of fit asserts that the effectiveness and the robustness of social institutions
are functions of the fit between the institutions themselves and the biophysical and
social domains in which they operate”. Although this paper will address the social
domain of institutions, our main focus will be on institutional linkages to the
biophysical domain....
