ABSTRACTWhen a crowd’s motivations are not triggered, they may not necessarily commit their best efforts, even if they have the knowledge to answer an open call. Drawing on the incentive theory, we introduce a top-down process model for an online crowdsourcing campaign that addresses the crowd’s motivations. This model is in contrast to the traditional bottom-up process model, where the crowd self-selects an open call based on their knowledge. We adopt a longitudinal case study method and examin...

This article examines the “chicken†egg†two†way relationships between online consumer reviews and sales, and assesses the dual influencer and indicator roles of online consumer reviews in relation to purchase behavior. Considering the time factor, we adopt the methodology of Granger causality test and track 3,390 products on Amazon.com over a 2†month period. The results reveal that a causality loop exists between online consumer review volume and sales. Specifically, our findings indica...

Online reviews constitute a central element in modern word-of-mouth communication and can strongly influence customer purchase intention. However, customers may be also aware of that these tools can be manipulated or counterfeited, and suspicion upon the review authenticity may affect its influence. The objective of this paper is to examine the effects of suspicion about fake reviews on the effectiveness of reviews in influencing customers’ purchase intentions. The results of our empirical study...

Several months ago, when Jakob, Timothy and I were planning this spring’s issue of the JBA, we realised that we would probably have two articles ready for publication on professional people―architects and fashion designers―regarded as “creative.” So, in an attempt to overcome the randomness of journal submissions and to create a thematic flow for our readers, we decided to seek opinions on creativity and innovation from people in the business world and from academics who make it their business t...
