Two papers on the mental model tool


Two papers have been published in December 2021 by MECCA team members that are laying the groundwork for the MECCA project:

  • One paper introduces M-Tool and provides a guide on how to use the tool in their research:
    van den Broek, K.L., Klein, S.A., Luomba, J. & Fischer, H., (2021). Introducing M-Tool: A standardised and inclusive mental model mapping tool. System Dynamics Review, 37(4), 346-355. https://doi.org/10.1002/sdr.1698
  • The other paper showcases the first application of the tool with a sample of Tanzanian fishers, and demonstrates support for M-Tool’s usability and validity:
    van den Broek K.L., Luomba J., van den Broek J. and Fischer H. (2021). Evaluating the Application of the Mental Model Mapping Tool (M-Tool). Frontiers in Psychology, 12:761882. https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2021.761882
