All these documents can be found in our Knowledge Base. Next to all the publications about the method, we also include as much articles – or links to articles – about the COSMIC method in the Knowledge Base.

For all our documents COSMIC has the policy that the original master versions are in English. Although we invest a lot of effort in ensuring that the translations are exact translations of the original master version, there is always a possibility that using a translated version can lead to a different interpretation of one of our documents. In such an event, the English master version is leading and all translations are derived documents.
