We are keen to examine and extend our audience’s understanding of the social and technology elements of an organisation that support knowledge transfer and sharing for innovation and innovation development. We are looking for papers that address the problems experienced in SMEs in relation to knowledge sharing and innovation, and how sociotechnical solutions can overcome/assist understanding, and can develop better methods for the organisation. We would especially welcome papers that address trust and culture within the social elements. We would expect papers to concentrate on web-based technology for any technical solutions or support offered.
This special issue will look for practical sociotechnical approaches that can assist practitioners, academics, researchers, and students, in the design and implementation of such KMS for SMEs. An international perspective would be welcome.
