Call for Papers for the mini track on "Global and Cross Cultural Aspects 
of Crowdsourced Content Production and Knowledge Repositories"

Track: Global, International, and Cross Cultural Issues in IS (SIGCCRIS)


With the advent of Web 2.0, many crowdsourced content production and 
repository sites, such as Wikipedia, YouTube, and Yahoo! Answers, are 
flourishing. Wikipedia, for example, became one of the top ten most 
popular websites. Many scholars have focused attention on information 
quality and processes of mass knowledge production, as well as the 
social aspects of these projects. However, significantly less attention 
has been given to their global nature. Wikipedia, for example, includes 
articles in 285 languages, Yahoo! Answers International is available in 
more than 25 languages, and YouTube in more than 60 languages. This 
global nature of such knowledge creation and content repository projects 
offers a rich socio-technical environment to examine international and 
cross cultural issues online. Previous studies are predisposed to 
primarily investigate the English version of these repositories, yet 
there is a need for more cross cultural research. The purpose of this 
minitrack is to showcase research on knowledge production projects that 
goes beyond their English versions. The minitrack welcomes both 
empirical and conceptual work and solicits innovative analysis of 
international and cross cultural aspects of these projects. We invite 
papers, research in progress, and panels.

  Suggested Topics:

Appropriate topics for this minitrack include (but are not limited to) 
the following list:

·Global, cross cultural and international issues of crowdsourced content 
production and repository sites, such as:**

oWikipedia **

oYouTube **



oAmazon Recommendations, and others.**

·With special interest in:**

oInternational collaboration and conflict

oCross cultural interactions

oCase studies in any non-English language

oComparative and cross cultural studies in more than one language, 
focusing on content, structures, policies, contributions, interactions, 
processes, motivations, and challenges
