Information systems success in free and open source software development: theory and measures

Kevin Crowston, James Howison, Hala Annabi
2006 Software Process: Improvement and Practice  
Information systems success is one of the most widely used dependent variables in information systems (IS) research, but research on free/libre and open source software (FLOSS) often fails to appropriately  ...  We first review existing models of IS success and success variables used in FLOSS research and assess them for their usefulness, practicality and fit to the FLOSS context.  ...  Any opinions, findings and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.  ...

Measures to establish trust in internet voting

Melanie Volkamer, Oliver Spycher, Eric Dubuis
2011 Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance - ICEGOV '11  
After describing the proposed measures and discussing both their advantages and pitfalls, we relate them to four commonly known applied internet voting systems.  ...  In this paper we introduce a number of measures meant to help at gaining trust.  ...  Nevertheless, the Helios system is open source and thus allows deducing rather easily how to develop another voting client.  ...
