Strategy management involves understanding the forces and causes that explain performance differences between organisations, a result of different stocks of knowledge-based resources and capabilities. The intellectual capital literature focuses on the measurement of firms' knowledge base. It also addresses building guidelines for the development of "intellectual capital accounts". IJLIC covers the latest advances on organisational learning, knowledge management and intellectual capital measuring and reporting. It promotes ways in which these impact on firms' competitive advantage in the New Economy.

  • Knowledge cities and regions; universities of the future
  • Future skills of knowledge workers
  • Challenges and trends in knowledge and creative economics

More on this journal...

The topics of Organisational Learning (OL), Knowledge Management (KM) and Intellectual Capital (IC) are receiving increased interest both from the academic community and companies because of the influence of innovation and learning on the achievement of a competitive advantage for the firm in the New Economy. Literature on knowledge management and intellectual capital suggests that competitive advantage flows from the creation, ownership, protection, storage and use of certain knowledge-based organisational resources. Superior organisational performance depends on firms| ability to be good at innovation, learning, protecting, deploying, amplifying and measuring these strategic intangible resources.

The objective of IJLIC is to bring together a selection of new perspectives that collectively articulate a knowledge-based view of strategy management. It adopts a knowledge-based view that considers the role of the firm in the nurturing, deployment, storage and measurement of the organisation|s knowledge.


Organisational Learning, Intellectual Capital and Knowledge Management have a broad appeal and IJLIC readership will include:

  • Corporate heads of firms
  • Senior general managers
  • Managing directors
  • Chief knowledge officers
  • Chief intellectual capital officers
  • Board directors
  • Academics and researchers in the field both in universities and business schools
  • Auditors
  • Information technology directors and managers
  • Quality managers and directors
  • Human resource directors
  • Libraries and information centres serving the needs of the above


IJLIC offers a holistic view of the resources, tools, techniques, strategies and technologies necessary for the effective implementation of knowledge management, intellectual capital measuring and reporting and organisational learning in firms. It is double blind peer-reviewed and publishes both high-quality academic (theoretical or empirical) and practical papers in the broad ranges of knowledge management and intellectual capital topics
