Over the past 15 years, “open” phenomena enabled by information technology (IT) have received increased interest from information systems (IS) researchers. Such interest on the topic of openness and IT can be seen in many dedicated conferences, conference tracks, journal special issues, workshops and in the recent formation of an AIS Special Interest Group on Open Research and Practice (AIS SIGOPEN). We understand IT-enabled openness broadly in terms of accessibility of knowledge, technology, and other resources; the transparency of action; the permeability of organisational structures; and the inclusiveness of participation. Openness manifests through various economic, legal, organisational, social and technological systems.
