|Digital platforms for knowledge work (DPKW), such as Upwork, Freelancer, and Fiverr, connect clients with millions of workers for a range of knowledge work services, including app development, graphic design, and data analytics. Research on this emergent phenomenon has recently gained traction in terms of publication volume and research diversity. Focusing on the contributions of information systems research, we conducted a literature review to distinguish papers on DPKW from related types of digital platforms, to synthesize what we know about knowledge work on DPKW, and to guide future research. Based on a comprehensive literature search, we derived five boundary conditions, which constitute our definition of DPKW: digitality, value network paradigm, centralized governance, contractual work, and knowledge work. We further developed a conceptual process framework of the constituent processes of DPKW. With this framework, we elaborate on an established process model to distinguish the three macrolevel processes of matching, contracting, and executing. We further examined microlevel processes suggested in extant research based on a process linking approach in order to understand how they synchronically instantiate each macrolevel process. Emphasizing the significance of the micro and macrolevel processes and the emergent stage of the literature on DPKW, we offer an agenda for future research and outline implications for practice.
