Crowd work – digital value creation in the cloud: an overview of the basis, the forms and the current state of research (Crowdwork-digitale Wertschöpfung in der Wolke: Ein Überblick über die Grundlagen, die Formen und den aktuellen Forschungsstand)

Crowd sourcing and crowd work are currently still rather underresearched. Accordingly limited reliable information on medium- to long-run implications can be provided. Against this background, Jan Marco Leimeister, Shkodran Zogaj and Ivo Blohm explore the basic characteristics and conditions of crowd work. (German: Crowdsourcing und Crowdwork sind zurzeit noch relativ unerforscht, sodass entsprechend wenig belastbare Aussagen über mittel- oder langfristige Implikationen getroffen werden können. Vor diesem Hintergrund setzen sich Jan Marco Leimeister, Shkodran Zogaj und Ivo Blohm mit den grundlegenden Eigenschaften und Gegebenheiten von Crowdsourcing und Crowdwork auseinander.)
