Welcome to Case Study Database, a gateway to selected literature on community-based resource management.
Using the free-form database program, AskSam5, this online tool provides searchable access to hundreds of cases including papers in scientific journals, book chapters, case studies, and Masters and PhD dissertations. This database is updated from time to time with new cases on community-based resource and environmental management.
The database is a powerful tool for:
• Searching case studies in different categories
• Accessing international literature in an logically organized format
• Analyzing the current trends, social characteristics and different types of community-based research
• Providing background information for further research on community-based resource management
How to use the database
This database provides a KEYWORD search engine, in which you type a word or phrase (using either 'and', 'or', or '*') into the 'toolbar search' - the program will search for the word(s) in all lines of all documents. The database provides a list of all case studies that contain the keyword(s). This list shows the case study name; country; document type; year; and language. To obtain more details of that particular case, click on the NUMBER in the first column. This will provide the detailed description of the case in printable form. The page includes a summary of the case and may include a PDF or web link.
