Getting Clear About Communities in Open Innovation

Joel West and Karim Lakhani

Industry and Innovation, 2008, vol. 15, issue 2, 223-231

Abstract: Research on open source software, user innovation and open innovation have increasingly emphasized the role of communities in creating, shaping and disseminating innovations. However, the comparability of such studies has been hampered by the lack of a precise definition of the community construct. In this paper we review prior definitions (implicit and explicit) of the community construct, and other suggestions for future research.
