Abstract: In a self-organizing virtual community, the members are responsible for defining the norms that govern the community. A model for self-organizing virtual communities is proposed. The model is useful to study a self-organizing community and understand how it is structured in order to improve its self-organization feature. The model is used in two investigations. We investigate the need of self-organization feature by virtual communities. We also investigate the participation of members in the self-organization process, by identifying the categories of members that contribute significantly during the elaboration of norms.
