Ceased 2013?

The Journal of Knowledge Management Practice (formerly the Journal of Systemic Knowledge Management under a different publisher) is devoted to collecting serious research about knowledge management and its practical applications. Authors are invited to read the notes for contributors, and are encouraged to contribute. We will promise a fast and fair critical review of all papers submitted. The Journal of Knowledge Management Practice is published in electronic format only. The philosophy of the journal is systemic, and will include submitted/invited papers related to all aspects of knowledge management. Elements such as physical assets, learning, database technology, intellectual capital, investment strategy, mindsets, and a host of others subject to systemic interactions, are increasingly treated as separate and unrelated topics. The journal will seek to foster cross-fertilisation and a more general understanding of how all these elements and subsystems can be identified, and managed, to fit together and interact to best fulfil organisational objectives. It is hoped to promote a practical view of knowledge management which will motivate practitioners to engage across topic boundaries. Knowledge Management (KM) is defined as those processes, tools and infrastructures by which an organisation continuously improves, maintains and exploits all those elements of its knowledge base which the organisation believes are relevant to achieving its goals; KM includes the processes, tools and infrastructure by which these goals are modified as the organisation's knowledge base changes. The organisation's knowledge base is defined to include the data, information, intuition, knowledge (know how), understanding (know why), and wisdom, residing throughout the organisation.


Knowledge Management Research and Practice (KMRP) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-19]
|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |On ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs | ACPHIS Rank 'A' |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
Knowledge management is a term that has worked its way into the mainstream of both academic and business arenas since it was first coined in the 1980s. Interest has increased rapidly during the last decade and shows no signs of abating. The current state of the knowledge management field is that it encompasses four overlapping areas: Managing knowledge (creating/acquiring, sharing, retaining, storing, using, updating, retiring); Organisational learning; Intellectual capital; Knowledge economics. Within (and across) these, knowledge management has to address issues relating to technology, people, culture and systems. Perhaps as a consequence of this diversity, the knowledge management literature is at present fragmented. Many of the most influential articles on knowledge management appear in journals in fields as diverse as information systems, general management, strategy, organisational sociology or human resources. The literature also often, somewhat misleadingly, presents the subject as split. Current examples of these 'splits', which should rather be debates, include those between the 'codification' and 'collaboration' schools of thought, and between 'Western' (meaning North American) and 'Eastern' (meaning Japanese) approaches. The intention for this journal is not only to accommodate these and other perspectives, but also to seek common ground between them.

International Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Change Management (IJKCCM) [Entry Reviewed: 2016-02-08]
|Subscription required |DEST Approved |On Scopus database |Not on ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs |Not ranked by ACPHIS |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
The interests of the International Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Change Management range across organisations in all their forms and manifestations: businesses, from micro-enterprises to multinational corporations; institutions of formal learning, from schools to universities; public sector agencies; and non-government and community sector organisations. Its concern also extends beyond the boundaries of organisations to consider the dynamics of supply chains, organisational alliances, networks, communities of practice and capacity building. The story may be different from situation to situation. However, across all of these contexts, a pragmatic focus persists?to examine the ?organisation? and ?management? of groups of people collaborating to productive ends, and to analyse what makes for success and sustainability. The focus of the Journal is those intangible drivers which determine not only the livability of organisations for insiders, and their credibility and attraction to outsiders; but also their tangible results in the form of efficiency, effectiveness and productivity. The intangibles of knowledge, culture and change management do not appear on balance sheets, but ultimately do have an enormous impact on ?bottom lines?. The Journal will attempt to address dynamics of knowledge, culture and change as they manifest themselves in organisations. The perspectives range from big picture analyses to detailed case studies which speak to the tangible value of organisational intangibles. They will traverse a broad terrain, from theory and analysis to practical strategies for action.

|Subscription required |Not DEST Approved |On Scopus database |On ISI database |Refereed according to Ulrichs | ACPHIS Rank 'A' |[paper/ejournal] [instructions]
Knowledge-Based Systems is the international, interdisciplinary and applications-oriented journal on KBS. Knowledge-Based Systems focuses on systems that use knowledge-based techniques to support human decision-making, learning and action. Such systems are capable of cooperating with human users and so the quality of support given and the manner of its presentation are important issues. The emphasis of the journal is on the practical significance of such systems in modern computer development and usage. As well as being concerned with the implementation of knowledge-based systems, the journal covers the design process, the matching of requirements and needs to delivered systems and the organisational implications of introducing such technology into the workplace and public life, expert systems, application of knowledge-based methods, integration with conventional technologies, software tools for KBS construction, decision-support mechanisms, user interactions, organisational issues, knowledge acquisition, knowledge representation, languages and programming environments, knowledge-based implementation techniques and system architectures. Also included are publication reviews.
