Crowdsourcing is an emerging, typically online, distributed problem solving and production model where a problem is solved through the involvement of a large number of people. In this paper, the authors investigate the potential of crowdsourcing in aiding Requirements Engineering (RE). Although the whole area is still to be explored fully, they focus on the requirements elicitation stage. In this paper, they survey the literature on crowdsourcing in a variety of disciplines and deduce a set of features which characterize its main constructs; the crowd and the crowdsourcers.
