Abstract

© 2015 IEEE. This paper aims to analyse the key factors influencing knowledge sharing in open source software projects. Four deep cases are analyzed to develop a conceptual framework based on within-case and cross-case analysis. In terms of data collection, online (including skype meeting, email, email-list, IRC, forum, group meeting, etc) and offline (mainly with face-to-face discussion) activities are two major platforms. The research framework is that distributed innovation (independent variable) will influence shared knowledge (medium variable) and continue to affect the performance of OSS projects (dependent variable). During distributed innovation, developers located on the supply side will affect the shared knowledge from the aspects of Participative Motivation, Social Network and Organizational Culture. Meanwhile, users situated on the demand side will function from the view of user innovation.
