The Emergence of Standards: a Meta-analysis

This paper provides a list of factors that influence the outcome of standards battles, developed by performing a meta-analysis of 103 papers. An extensive literature study revealed 31 factors which are grouped under five categories: superior design, mechanisms, stakeholders, dominant agent and strategy. The relations between the factors are discussed and the set of factors applied to an example of a standardization battle: the video case.
