Knowledge Portals: A Review

Hayden Wimmer (Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, USA), Jie Du (Grand
Valley State University, Allendale, USA), Roy Rada (University of Maryland
Baltimore County, Baltimore, USA)

Knowledge portals are a method to provide integrated access to users of
multiple systems through a single-entry point. A large body of literature
exists on knowledge portals; however, the only published literature reviews
are outdated, as they only cover material prior to the 21st century. The
purpose of this article is to present review on some major papers about
knowledge portals that were published from 2000-2017. The review takes a
holistic perspective based on systems development life cycle to critique
the literature and identifies key challenges that enlighten future
directions. Trends in the first decade of the 21st century include the
desire to formalize and standardize a model of knowledge portals, while
major challenges for the future include the need to maintain cybersecurity
across users and platforms.

Internal and Consulting Information Flows in the Process of Knowledge

Wiliam Acar (Kent State University, Kent, USA), Rami al-Gharaibeh (Jordan
University of Science & Technology, Irbid, Jordan)

Practical applications of knowledge management are hindered by a lack of
linkage between the accepted data-information-knowledge hierarchy with
using pragmatic approaches. Specifically, the authors seek to clarify the
use of the tacit-explicit dichotomy with a deductive synthesis of
complementary concepts. The authors review appropriate segments of the
KM/OL literature with an emphasis on the SECI model of Nonaka and Takeuchi.
Looking beyond equating the sharing of knowledge with mere socialization,
the authors deduce from more recent developments a knowledge creation,
nurturing and control framework. Based on a cyclic and upward-spiraling
data-information-knowledge structure, the authors' proposed model affords
top managers and their consultants opportunities for capturing, debating
and storing richer information – as well as monitoring their progress and
controlling their learning process.

Integrating Knowledge Management into Information Security: From Audit to

Cheuk Hang Au (The University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia), Walter S. L.
Fung (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hunghom, Hong Kong)

Repeated information security (InfoSec) incidents have harmed the
confidence of people on enterprises' InfoSec capability. While most
organisations adopt control frameworks such as ISO27001 and COBIT, the role
and contribution of knowledge management on InfoSec was inadequately
considered. The authors integrated the concepts of knowledge-centric
information security and IT Governance (ITG) into an ITG-driven knowledge
framework (ITGKF) for reinforcing InfoSec maturity and auditability of
enterprises. The authors also tried to assess whether ITG can embrace
proper knowledge circulation within the InfoSec community. The authors
confirmed the positive influence of IT governance on knowledge-centric
information security (KCIS) and information security maturity and audit
result (ISMAR), the positive influence of KCIS on ISMAR, and the mediating
role of KCIS between ITG and ISMAR. These indicated the significance of KM
in InfoSec area. Based on the findings, they proposed possible changes of
integrating KM in different InfoSec practices and audit standard.

Advancing Automated Content Analysis in Knowledge Management Research: The
Use of Compound Concepts

Nora Fteimi (University of Passau, Passau, Germany), Dirk Basten
(Department of Information Systems and Systems Development, University of
Cologne, Cologne, Germany), Franz Lehner (University of Passau, Passau,

This article reports on the development of a knowledge management (KM)
dictionary and its application to automated content analysis to investigate
topical foci of KM publications and provide an overview of the current
research landscape. While automated content analysis gains importance, a
problem prevails concerning the use and analysis of compound concepts
(e.g., organizational learning). Using a self-developed dictionary of
KM-related compound concepts, a sample of 4,290 publications from ten
top-ranked KM journals and one KM conference was analyzed using text-mining
software. Based on the dictionary approach, this study investigates core
research themes of the KM discipline and compares key research interests
throughout the IJKM community and those of other outlets. The investigation
provides guidance to identify research opportunities in KM and provides
useful implications concerning the application of dictionaries.
Practitioners might adapt their organizations' approaches to KM
accordingly, with regard to prevailing themes and trends in KM research.

Pursuing Innovation Through Knowledge Sharing: Brazil and Portugal

Eduardo Kunzel Teixeira (PUCRS, Porto Alegre, Brazil), Mirian Oliveira
(PUCRS, Porto Alegre, Brazil), Carla Maria Marques Curado (ISEG-UL, Lisboa,

The present study investigates the relationship between knowledge sharing
(knowledge donation and knowledge collection dimensions) with
organizational innovation (Administrative and technological innovation
forms) in Brazilian and Portuguese organizations. The hypotheses were
tested using the partial least squares (PLS) approach. Knowledge donation
was shown to be positively related with administrative innovation among
Portuguese companies, but not among Brazilian companies. Knowledge donation
was shown to be positively related with technical innovation among both
Brazilian and Portuguese companies. Knowledge collection was shown to have
no relationship with either of the two types of innovation in the two
investigated countries. As a practical implication, companies that work in
multiple locations need to customize their sharing processes considering
differences in national culture. Other studies have made use of the
two-dimensional concept of knowledge sharing, but view its relationship
with a one-dimensional construct of innovation and without comparing

Mapping Methodological Issues in Knowledge Management Research, 2009–2014

Patrick Ngulube (School of Interdisciplinary Research and Postgraduate
Studies, University of South Africa, Pretoria, South Africa)

By drawing on the nuances in methodological research literature, this
qualitative content analysis study investigated the research procedures
employed in knowledge management (KM) research between 2009 and 2014, to
gain an understanding of the methodological choices made by KM researchers.
In total, 989 articles published in five leading KM-centric journals were
reviewed. The results revealed that KM research utilised a variety of
research procedures. The predominance of positivist epistemologies varied
across the five journals, but mixed methods research was not prevalent.
True to the interpretivist presuppositions of this study, these results are
not definitive. Deploying multi-methods may result in a deeper
understanding of the use of research procedures in the field. The value of
this study lies in the fact that it will lead to greater knowledge of
research methodologies in the subject field and provide a baseline for
future studies that have an interest in reflecting on context-specific
methodological practices.

Mission of IJKM:

The primary objective of the *International Journal of Knowledge Management
(IJKM)* is to provide a comprehensive cross discipline forum for advancing
the understanding of the organizational, technical, human, and cognitive
issues associated with the creation, capture, transfer and use of knowledge
in organizations. The secondary objective of this Journal is to share
knowledge among researchers and practitioners with respect to the design,
development, implementation and maintenance of effective knowledge
management systems. The journal publishes high quality empirical and
theoretical research covering all aspects of knowledge management. In
