Summary With Web 2.0 providing a greater interaction among web users, crowdsourcing has received great attention from both practitioners and scholars over the years. Crowdsourcing is defined as the process of outsourcing tasks once done by employees to an undefined network of people in the form of an open call. While crowdsourcing is mainly used in a business context, it is applicable to many other areas, including research and education. This book provides a diversity of studies in crowdsourcing, covering its definition and how it is related to other concepts, such as citizen empowerment. It examines the components of a crowdsourcing system and their interaction. The application of crowdsourcing across difference areas, including tourism and education, will have great potential of development in the near future.
