Project Abstract

This project aims to study the emergence of "communities of practice", as seen in the change in the size and structure of the network of participants, in various OSS projects. The study is exploratory in nature - any patterns that might arise in the change of network structures are investigated by looking at the project structures and the interactions between the members belonging to various projects over a period of time.
