Abstract The open source software (OSS) model is a fundamentally new and revolutionary way to develop software. The success of the OSS model is also setting the stage for a structural change in the software industry; it is beginning to transform software industry from manufacturing to a service industry. Despite the success of the OSS model, for‐profit organizations are having difficulty building a business model around the open source paradigm. Whereas there are some isolated empirical studies… Expand

THE OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PHENOMENON: AN ANALYSIS BASED ON SOCIAL NETWORK THEORY
TLDR
It is hypothesized that open source software development can be modeled as self-organizing, collaboration, social networks, and evidence is found to support this hypothesis, primarily in the presence of power-law relationships on project sizes, developers per project, project membership, and cluster sizes. Expand
