Abstract: This paper paves the way for understanding the base notion of trust relationships among organisations, which is central to the successful operation of Collaborative Networked Organisations (CNOs). The suggested approach for establishment of trust relationships is particularly important for large and very large CNOs where their member organisations are not totally known by each other; nevertheless need to trust each other to collaborate. This paper contributes to understanding and modelling of trust relationships in CNOs. It analyses elements necessary for modelling trust relationships and presents three possible formalisms: record-based, object-based, and ontology-based for modelling trust relationships in CNOs.
