Two mechanisms employed by organizations to ensure information quality in organizational knowledge repositories is using experts to control or edit users’ contributions (such as in a refereed repository), or using a community of users to review, rate, or edit existing contributions (such as in a community-driven wiki). The goal of this paper is to explore these two mechanisms and study their impact on knowledge contributions by organizational members. Propositions are suggested by drawing upon self-determination theory.
