FLOSS @ Syracuse

The FLOSS research group at Syracuse University's iSchool offers several FLOSS research resources, developed in conjunction with research into work practices and dynamics of FLOSS development teams.

We are studying the following general research questions:

  • What practices make some distributed work teams more effective than others?
  • How are these practices developed?
  • What are the dynamics through which self-organizing distributed teams develop and work?
