Abstract

The research universities have been recognised as knowledge-based organisations (Goddard, 1998), which revolve around several key knowledge processes: knowledge creation; knowledge dissemination and learning Within this context, a university’s strategic approach in knowledge management (KM) to encourage knowledge sharing (KS), and subsequently research collaboration can lead its advancement and growth advantage. As collaboration has been viewed as the breeding ground for new knowledge, it is essential that a university understands its relationship to KS. This research aims to study the KM enablers’ influence on faculty members’ KS in supporting research collaboration within five research universities in Malaysia. The individual-organisational-technological constructs from this study offer universities with specific directions in strategising their KM initiatives to ensure greater KS and retention of valuable knowledge.
