Koch (information business, Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration, Austria) provides an overview of current research in the field of free and open source software (F/OSS) development. Contributors in software design, computer science, and examine free and open source software development from various perspectives, such as sociology, legal implications, and business models. The organization of the book reflects the different research approaches taken in the field, with sections on intensive and extensive analysis in F/OSS development and software engineering, F/OSS projects as social constructs, simulating F/OSS, development, F/OSS development integration with commercial and public organizations, and implications of the F/OSS development model.
