Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Knowledge management promotes multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research, exploiting contributions from Social Sciences, Information Systems research, as well as Education and Psychology domains. It serves as a holistic approach to the exploitation of structured and unstructured knowledge residing in digitized systems, human minds, and social assemblies. The latest developments in sophisticated, distributed information systems for Big Data management also set new challenges

Toward this end, the Guest Editors of this Special Issue seek papers that address, but are not limited to, the following issues and aspects related to the diverse aspects of Sustainable Data Science research:

Knowledge Management Topics

  • Knowledge-based strategies and systems;
  • Intellectual capital theories and systems;
  • Knowledge modeling techniques;
  • Knowledge and topic maps;
  • Recommendation systems and engines for critical decision support;
  • Knowledge management and Web 4.0 integration;
  • Knowledge management and organization security issues;
  • Enterprise knowledge management;
  • Communities of practice to manage knowledge and drive innovation;
  • Managing interorganizational networks;
  • Knowledge management and drivers of development and innovation;
  • Knowledge in universities and research centers: proposed indicators for measuring relational capital;
  • Skills and competencies management;
  • Knowledge management in the public service;
  • Assessing knowledge assets in sectors;
  • KM integration to entrepreneurship and innovation activities;
  • Knowledge management for web-based learning systems;
