The Institutional Grammar 2.0 is supported by a wide range of resources that address different objectives, including conceptual aspects and practical concerns regarding the coding of institutional statements, as well as tools that support the process.
Resources related to the Institutional Grammar more broadly (i.e., specifically resources related to the original Institutional Grammar) can be found on the IGRI website.
Conceptual Foundations & Supplementary Information
Conceptual and theoretical guidance is offered by the original Public Administration article, as well as the comprehensive coverage in the book.

Cheat Sheet & Coding Guidance
Operational guidance for the encoding of institutional information is provided in the frequently updated IG 2.0 Codebook. A brief conceptual overview is provided in the IG 2.0 Cheat Sheet.
Additional Resources (Software, Videos, etc.)
IG Parser -- The IG Parser is a software tool to support the encoding of institutional statements, in order to provide different types of output for further processing. These currently include
- tabular output that can be processed in Excel, Google Sheets, etc.
- visual output that offers an interactive visualization of coded statements as a tree structure, following the style used in the book.
We are further in the process of developing introductory video resources as well as additional software tools to support the encoding and analysis of institutional statements, which will be listed here once they become available.
