Testing an Integrative Theoretical Model of Knowledge-Sharing Behavior in the Context of Wikipedia Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology 2010 This study explores how and why people participate in collaborative knowledge-building practices in the context of Wikipedia. Based on a survey of 223 Wikipedians, this study examines the relationship between motivations, internal cognitive beliefs, social-relational factors, and knowledge-sharing intentions. Results from structural equation modeling {(SEM)} analysis reveal that attitudes, knowledge self-efficacy, and a basic norm of generalized reciprocity have significant and direct relationships with knowledge-sharing intentions. Altruism (an intrinsic motivator) is positively related to attitudes toward knowledge sharing, whereas reputation (an extrinsic motivator) is not a significant predictor of attitude. The study also reveals that a social-relational factor, namely, a sense of belonging, is related to knowledge-sharing intentions indirectly through different motivational and social factors such as altruism, subjective norms, knowledge self-efficacy, and generalized reciprocity. Implications for future research and practice are discussed. 0 1

Factors affecting volunteer participants' performance in the virtual community: The case of knowledge sharing website Expectancy Theory
Knowledge Sharing
Virtual Community
15th Americas Conference on Information Systems 2009, AMCIS 2009 English 2009 Virtual community has gained much attention from academia and practice due to its great outcomes and potentials. One of the major issues here is how the virtual communities made such enormous outcomes with little control and reward, as wikipedia or Linux did. This study assumes that the voluntary participant's performance has a direct impact on the productivity of the virtual community, and tries to find factors affecting the participant's performance in the virtual community. We employ as theoretical bases Expectancy Theory, Goal Setting Theory, and literatures related with volunteers' motivation. This study conducts the email survey from participants of knowledge service community of NHN, a leading Korean online company. We find that high-performing participants have individual ability, goal congruence, and the greater level of effort motivated by personal or collective functions. 0 0
