Abstract

Knowledge sharing has been considered a significant component of success in Knowledge Management (KM). In the most organizations KM is often inadequate when it comes to knowledge sharing, especially between staff who work in universities. In order to encourage knowledge sharing, it is important to know why/where/when employees choose to contribute or to receive shared knowledge. The purpose of this research is to investigate the factors that affect academics’ behavior towards knowledge sharing by using Web technology. A synthesis of factors which already exist in current theory, i.e., the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology, as well as other factors which are always explored independently in research studies, are combined to a Knowledge Sharing Technology Model has constructed. The model identifies the key factors that affect the uptake of knowledge technologies in universities.
