Oldenbourg Verlag just published a special issue on open source that I edited. Titled “the unstoppable rise of open source” it provides a five-article overview of open source past, present, and future.
Please read my introduction to “the unstoppable rise of open source” and any of the papers provided in the special issue—naturally, I ensured that they are accessible open access (for free) to readers.
The reference to the special issue is it – Information Technology, Volume 55, Issue 5 (Oct 2013). To make life easy, I’m providing the table of contents here as well:
