Knowledge management systems and processes – a free virtual issue of JASIST


jasist JASIST, the Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, has published a wealth of scholarly papers on knowledge development, knowledge sharing, communities of practice and other knowledge management (KM) relevant topics over the years.  We reproduce here the second part of a recent Virtual Issue covering in particular the theme of knowledge management systems and processes.

A number of the articles we reviewed for this Virtual Issue on Knowledge Management put emphasis on knowledge processes and the systems that they supplement, presented in the context of community interactions. For instance, we have included a few articles that look at KM processes used in major disasters and emergency conditions. In addition, we have included articles that focus on what goes into the design of good knowledge management systems and some of the ways that such systems are implemented, as well as others which focus on processes in organizational learning.  (See full editorial for this Virtual Issue here)
