This chapter summarizes the research framework for the study of knowledge commons and the results of applying that framework in a diverse array of institutional settings. As a whole, the book is an early step toward a systematic, framework-driven study of knowledge commons governance. The chapter notes that it is still too early to derive principles for the design of successful knowledge commons from the dozen cases presented here or to suggest general lessons about commons governance. More study is needed. These cases illustrate the potential of the structured case study approach. They also suggest refinements and improvements to the research framework. Despite the diversity of the cases, the chapter identifies several key themes common to many of them. It is hoped that further studies using the research framework will lead to more specific hypotheses and, eventually, to useful principles.
