How do intrinsic and extrinsic motivation correlate with each other in open source software development? (engelsk)
Abstract [sv]

Open source is growing outside the boundaries of hackers, amateurs and software development, creating a humongous potential in many different areas and aspects of society. The intrinsic and extrinsic motivations that drives open source have been in the subject of much research recently, but how they affect each other when paid and unpaid contributors come together is still hidden in obscurity. In this study I investigate how intrinsic and extrinsic motivation correlates with each other and how those correlations affect paid and unpaid open source software contributors. The literature synthesis is based on of systematic reviews through searches in library databases, identification of articles by searching on the Internet and by reading relevant books. My results indicate that intrinsic and extrinsic motivations continuously affect each other and that paid contributors are more vulnerable since their extrinsic motivation in terms of money is reached only when many other motivations are fulfilled. The paid contributor’s lower autonomy may result in a decrease in intrinsic motivation while social interaction may result in an increase of the same. The unpaid contributors are more likely to be intrinsically motivated than the paid contributors, resulting in higher psychological satisfaction, less stress, creativity and input of higher work effort among unpaid contributors.
