Knowledge management in OSS communities

Dear All,

I am a PhD student in e-Business in Durham University (UK). My
research topic is “Knowledge management and innovation in virtual
organisations”. The aim of my thesis is to assess how and to what
extent knowledge is created, shared, and circulated in open source
software communities.

In my empirical studies I am collecting primary data from members/
developers of OSS communities. I would be grateful if you could spend
no more than 15 minutes to answer my questionnaire. (URL:

There will be some prizes - after finishing the data collection, I
will randomly select some respondents and send them gift vouchers for
£20 from Amazon. Thank you very much for your time and cooperation. I
greatly appreciate your help in contributing to this research

Kind regards,
