Volunteer Management in Open Source Communities

Title: Volunteer Management in Open Source Communities

Authors: Ann Barcomb (Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg)

Abstract: Open source community management is largely ad-hoc and relies on practitioner guides. Yet there is a great deal of information about volunteer management in the general volunteering literature, open source literature and general volunteering guides which could be relevant to open source communities if it were categorized and validated. Bringing these di fferent sources of information together also reveals gaps in our understanding of volunteer management in open source which I hope to address.
