International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development (IJIRD), Vol. 3, No. 1, 2011

Abstract: With the aim of generating new ideas, a novel online social network (OSN)-based national open innovation system (NOIS) is introduced. Although the motivations to participate in online communities have been studied a lot, impacts of rewards on the open innovation activities such as NOIS have not gained much interest. To create successful innovation systems, it must include options for rewarding all key actors. We will define generic success measures for the NOIS reward model and introduce the body of knowledge regarding rewards in general and in online communities. To summarise our findings, we will suggest a solid reward model for open innovation-based OSNs and NOIS.
