Abstract Wikipedia is the world's largest multilingWikipedia is the world's largest multilingual free-content encyclopaedia written by users collaboratively. It is interesting to investigate why individuals have willingness to spend their time and knowledge to engage in. In this study, we try to explore the influence of self-concept-based motivation and individual attitudes toward Wikipedia on individual's knowledge sharing intention in Wikipedia. Members from Wikipedia were invited to participate in the investigation. An online questionnaire and structural equation modelling {(SEM)} technology was utilized to test the proposed model and hypotheses. Analytical results indicate that internal self-concept-based motivation significantly influences individual's knowledge sharing intention. Further, both information and system quality have significant effects on individual's attitude toward Wikipedia, and therefore, influence the intention to share knowledge in it.ce the intention to share knowledge in it.
