Scriptapedia is a collaborative effort to make group model building in system dynamics more transparent, accessible, and shared around the world. A number of individuals have been integral in initiating this effort. In alphabetical order, they are: David F. Andersen (University at Albany New York), Annaliese Calhoun (Washington University in St. Louis), Peter S. Hovmand (Washington University in St. Louis), Timothy Hower (Washington University in St. Louis), Etiënne Rouwette (Radboud University Nijmegen), Eric Steins (Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity), George P. Richardson (University at Albany New York), and Krista Rux (Washington University in St. Louis).
