The International Journal of Open Source Software and Processes  
(IJOSSP) is rapidly emerging as a venue to publish high-quality  
peer-reviewed and original research articles on the large field of  
open source software.

IJOSSP is a quarterly Journal indexed in Compendex (Elsevier  
Engineering Index), INSPEC, SCOPUS and many more prestigious indices.  
Its articles span a wide range of up-to-date topics and challenging  
application areas. We warmly invite you to look the Table of Contents

Open source entails many intriguing question and facets, including the  
special development process performed by a large number of  
geographically distributed programmers, community issues like  
coordination and communication, motivations of the participants, and  
also economic and legal issues. Beyond this topic, open source  
software is an example of a highly distributed innovation process led  
by the users. Therefore, many aspects have relevance beyond the realm  
of software and its development. In this tradition, IJOSSP also  
publishes papers on these topics. IJOSSP is a multi-disciplinary  
outlet, and welcomes submissions from all relevant fields of research  
and applying a multitude of research approaches.

IJOSSP covers the following topics (but not limited to):

-Business models for open source and other community-created artifacts;
-Case studies of open source projects, their participants and/or their  
development process;
-Characteristics of open source software projects, products, and processes;
-Dependability and security of open source software;
-Communication and coordination in open source projects;
-Customer co-creation and user participation in (software) design;
-Economic analyses of open source;
-Evolution of both open source software artifacts and open source communities;
-Implications of open source software for functional areas like public  
administration or teaching;
-Legal issues of open source software;
-Motivation of participants in open source projects and other  
distributed development efforts;
-Open science and open knowledge;
-Open source adoption and quality;
-Open source software development processes;
-Usage and adoption of open source software in different application  
areas and/or countries;
-User-centered innovation processes.


Prospective authors should note that only original and previously  
unpublished articles will be considered.
