Modeling Platforms

A wide selection of modeling platforms are available based on different programming languages and modeling strategies.


Advancing the use of agent-based models in scholarly research demands rigorous standards in model and experiment documentation. Volker Grimm et al. have developed a protocol for describing agent-based and individual-based models called ODD (Overview, Design Concepts, Details): “designed to ensure that such descriptions are readable and complete.” (Polhill, J. G., et al., 2008, 1.6)

Modeling Journals

An expanding field of scholarly journals now cover agent-based modeling and related computational modeling sciences.
