Research question

What firm-specific factors influence the likelihood to engage in the selective revealing of knowledge?


Selectiverevealingandcurrentliterature

  • Selectiverevealing(Henkel 2006, Alexy et al. 2013) extendstheestablishedliterature on knowledgeflows, e.g.

    • Collective invention(Allen 1983, Nuvolari 2004)

    • Cumulativeinvention(Scotchmer 1991)

    • Free revealing / private - collectiveinvention(von Hippel 1987, von Hippel & von Krogh 2003, Alexy2008)

    • Voluntaryknowledge-spillovers(Harhoff et al. 2003)


Researching a Non- Open Source Software environment

  • OSS isonlyoneofmanyindustries in theeconomy

  • Operationalisationofpropositionsstated in Alexy et al. (2013)

  • Difference in thedevelopmentprocessofsoftwareandotherindustries


  • Feedback andquestionswelcome:

  • Relevanceoftheresearchquestion
