“Crowdsourcing” or “Witkey”, Which Leads?

Lin Sufen, Ouyang Zhonghui and Lin Feng

“Witkey” and “crowdsourcing” are two words referring to the same real life phenomenon. They are both used in the academic world, but “witkey” is hardly used in English academic papers. The study compares the coinage, the original research of the words and their use frequency in Chinese and English academic papers. It finds that the use of “crowdsourcing” tends to be more popular and it also suggests that the integrative study of “witkey” and “crowdsourcing” papers is necessary for an overall study of the phenomenon.
