چکیده

Objective: Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs) programs often encounter obstacles of technical, legal, financial and business nature.‎ The existing literature provides valuable insight into each aspect, however a holistic view on these critical success factors is missing.‎ To develop a multifaceted view of ETD programs, the concept of Business model (BM) can be used.‎ BM helps to grasp a detailed understanding of business feasibility and viability, which entails abroad spectrum of key factors and features the business.‎ The existing BM ontologies and frameworks however are often generic and do not match the specific context of ETDs programs.‎ The purpose of this paper is to fill the gap and identify and empirically evaluate a BM ontology that corresponds to the peculiarities of the ETDs context.‎
Method: In this study a multi-method approach is chosen.‎ First, by means of a systematic literature review, different ontologies and frameworks in the literature were reviewed.‎ The findings were used as an input to conduct a series of interviewing with ETD program’s managers around the world.‎
Findings: Based on the interviews, an ETD-specific BM ontology is proposed, which consists of eight key components, including users, financial aspect, governance, content providers, content, services, technology, and cooperation.‎
