Knowledge management (KM) is the process of finding, distributing, and using knowledge about an organization effectively in a multi-disciplined approach.

Information Systems for Knowledge Management brings together leading authors in this field to discuss implementing KM through networks and information technology. Individual chapters cover various topics in the field, including assessing community maturity from a KM perspective; social networks; sociocultural KM in computer-supported collaborative learning; argumentation-based rough set theory and KM; using tacit knowledge in collaborative decision-making; information management in microblogs; KM systems in the legal domain; core ontologies; a multicriteria decision-making approach for business process evaluation; and a collaborative approach for knowledge codification, knowledge engineering methods and knowledge transfer.
