Reviews and Testimonials

Current IS journals address KM and KM-related issues but few, if any, academic journal are devoted to the pursuit of knowledge research. The International Journal of Knowledge Management will provide a forum for both academics and practitioners to share their research in all areas associated with knowledge management. In doing so, the journal fills a void and provides a high quality outlet in which to publish KM-related scholarly work.

– David Croasdell, University of Nevada, Reno, USA

Knowledge management is an emerging academic field that requires high quality journals as a venue to share our research, sustain the standing of the discipline within academic institutions and provide practitioners with a valuable source of ideas about groundbreaking work in the area. The International Journal of Knowledge Management is able to address all these roles to a high level because of the calibre of the editor and standing of the editorial board members in the Knowledge mangement community.
