The ODD protocol: A review and first update

The 'ODD' (Overview, Design concepts, and Details) protocol was published in 2006 to standardize the published descriptions of individual-based and agent-based models (ABMs). The primary objectives of ODD are to make model descriptions more understandable and complete, thereby making ABMs less subject to criticism for being irreproducible.

Towards better modelling and decision support: Documenting model development, testing, and analysis using TRACE
  • We introduce TRACE, a framework for documenting model testing and analysis.
  • TRACE is based on the recently proposed framework of model “evaludation”.
  • We provide a template for TRACE and three example TRACE documents.
  • TRACE is designed to make models fit for supporting environmental decision making.
