Community currencies have gained a lot of public attention over recent years. The development of these systems in different parts of the world has been accompanied by theoretical and empirical work of social scientists who have analysed these social innovations from a variety of different angles. This bibliography is a contribution to the academic infrastructure of community currency research. It is specifically designed for those pursuing an academic interest in this field. The major part of this project, the databank: VuFind, offers different options for searching this collection - by author, subject or through a detailed search.
RAMICS – The Research Association on Monetary Innovation and Community and Complementary Currency Systems has been founded
The launch of this association is a big step forward. RAMICS provides an organisational framework for the elements which already exist in this field of research – the International Journal of Community Currency Research (IJCCR), biennial conferences, and the Bibliography of Community Currency Research. This acknowledgement of CC-Literature as one of the cornerstones of a pioneering research infrastructure implies also a responsibility. Over the next weeks the databank will be updated, later this year the design of this website will be overhauled. In the meantime, a list with publications - not integrated in the databank yet - can be found here
