Special Issue on: "Knowledge Management and Information Technologies: Opportunities and Challenges for the Firm"

Guest Editor: Prof. Patricia Ordóñez de Pablos, University of Oviedo, Spain

The special issue aims at communicating and disseminating recent research and success stories that bring the power of emerging technologies to improve upon traditional knowledge management approaches, or realise emerging requirements of knowledge services for strategic management.

In the context of knowledge management, social and human issues are of equal if not higher importance than the technical issues that have tended to receive the bulk of attention in the past. Consequently, papers that address these topics or those that extend technical and domain knowledge to social and human issues are especially sought. This is intended to initiate a dialogue between the social, psychological and technical views of the field.

The aim of this special issue will offer a holistic view of the resources, tools, techniques, strategies and technologies necessary for the effective implementation of knowledge management in firms and organisations.
