MINI-TRACK: Crowdsourcing through Digital Platforms (SIG Sourcing)

Deadline: March 1st, 2023

Crowdsourcing through digital platforms affords large groups of people to contribute to an overarching goal, usually via virtual communities. Today anyone in the world with basic knowledge or resources has work opportunities afforded by digital platforms which link buyers and sponsors with a crowd or community. Inspired by the conference theme of “Diving Into Uncharted Waters”, this mini-track aims to investigate the high-impact potential of crowdsourcing, the gig-economy, sharing-economy, and platform-economy for economic and social benefit.

Increasing digitization and digitalization has also given rise to new sourcing models that leverage digital platforms to engage the “crowd.” IS researchers have responded to these developments by investigating new business models that rely on crowd involvement and are mediated by digital platforms – e.g., business models associated with gig economy (Wiener et al 2021). This focus on crowdsourcing and digital platforms, “crowdwork platforms” and “microsourcing platforms” is closely related to the larger phenomenon of IS sourcing (Nevo and Kotlarsky, 2020).

*Potential Topics*
Topics of research include, but are not limited to, the following:
* Better crowdsourcing methods and models
* Human and community factors
* Crowdsourcing markets and economic models
* Collaboration among and between individuals of the crowd
* Labor and work organization within virtual crowdsourcing communities
* Social and political impact case studies
* Impact sourcing through crowdsourcing (benefits for marginalized populations)
* Platform policies and practices for social benefit
* Standards for Decent Work (UN Sustainable Development Goal)
* Government policies and practices
* Multi-sourcing in a crowd-work and sharing-economy context
* Challenges and opportunities of crowd-work in middle and low-income countries
* Incorporating crowd-work into business processes


We will accept papers for in-person presentations as well as papers for virtual presentations. We still anticipate a strong in-person set of papers and vibrant experience, but we also want to encourage you to submit your best work even if you already know that you will not be able to be physically present. Authors of accepted virtual presentation papers will be provided with an asynchronous platform for their work.

Submission Types
* Full papers must not exceed 10 pages (approx. 5,000 words)
* Emergent Research Forum (ERF) papers must not exceed 5 pages
(approx. 2,500 words)


* January 6, 2023: Manuscript submissions begin
* March 1, 2023: Submissions are due at 10 a.m. EST
