Kaushik Ghosh, Kabir Sen
2015 2015 48th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
Contributions and implications are discussed.  ...  In healthcare, assisted by collective knowledge of a large group of individuals, crowdsourcing is enabling prediction of disease outbreaks and diagnosis of rare medical conditions.  ...  It has been linked to an individual's intention to participate in virtual communities, such as blogs [20] , and open source projects [28] .  ...

Why Do Episodic Volunteers Stay in FLOSS Communities?

Ann Barcomb, Klaas-Jan Stol, Dirk Riehle, Brian Fitzgerald
2019 2019 IEEE/ACM 41st International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE)  
Successful Free/Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) projects incorporate both habitual and infrequent, or episodic, contributors.  ...  Based on our findings, we offer suggestions for projects to incorporate and manage episodic volunteers, so as to better leverage this type of contributors and potentially improve projects' sustainability  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank Michael Dorner, Gregor Endler, and Gottfried Hofmann early feedback.  ...

Work practices and challenges in pull-based development

Georgios Gousios, Margaret-Anne Storey, Alberto Bacchelli
2016 Proceedings of the 38th International Conference on Software Engineering - ICSE '16  
Previous work has examined this model by focusing on projects and their owners-we complement it by examining the work practices of project contributors and the challenges they face.  ...  Our research shows that: contributors have a strong interest in maintaining awareness of project status to get inspiration and avoid duplicating work, but they do not actively propagate information; communication  ...  The survey was published online and its Web address was sent by personal email to all participants.  ...

sources of information available for an idea: its content, the contributor proposing it, and the crowd's feedback on the idea (the "3Cs").  ...  This study draws from prior research to operationalize variables corresponding to the 3Cs and develops a new measure to quantify an idea's distinctiveness.  ...  Both elements, however, can influence user participation in crowdsourcing communities, which in turn impacts the quality of idea generation efforts (Lu, Singh, and Srinivasan, 2011) .  ...

Work Practices and Challenges in Pull-Based Development: The Integrator's Perspective

Georgios Gousios, Andy Zaidman, Margaret-Anne Storey, Arie van Deursen
2015 2015 IEEE/ACM 37th IEEE International Conference on Software Engineering  
Our key findings are that integrators struggle to maintain the quality of their projects and have difficulties with prioritizing contributions that are to be merged.  ...  This work focuses on the role of the integrator and investigates working habits and challenges alike.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to thank the survey participants for their time. This work has been partially funded by the NWO 639.022.314 -TestRoots project.  ...

Motivation to share knowledge using wiki technology and the moderating effect of role perceptions

Ofer Arazy, Ian Gellatly, Esther Brainin, Oded Nov
2015 Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology  
Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.  ...  However, when contributors' motivation is internallydriven they are more likely to participate in knowledge sharing when this activity is viewed as extra-role behavior.  ...  Venkatesh et al. (2003) showed that voluntariness is an important moderator of the relationship between attitude (i.e. social influence) and behavioral intention (i.e. the intention to adopt an information  ...

mechanisms are essential for ensuring that ownership is not concentrated within a small number of contributors, our findings suggest that the burden of excessive governance may deter contributors from participating  ...  Peer production, such as the collaborative authoring of Wikipedia articles, involves both cooperation and competition between contributors, and we focus on the latter.  ...  Given their reliance on volunteers, peer production projects such as Wikipedia need to attract and retain participants with various interests and skill-sets.  ...
