The Journal of Intellectual Capital is a peer-reviewed international publication dedicated to the exchange of the latest research and best practice information on all aspects of creating, identifying, managing and measuring intellectual capital in organisations. The journal publishes original research and case studies by academic, business and public sector contributors on intellectual capital strategies, approaches, frameworks, tools, techniques and technologies in order to increase the understanding of intellectual capital within the context of the modern knowledge economy. The focus of this journal is on the identification of innovative intellectual capital strategies and the application of theoretical concepts to real-world situations.


"Intellectual capital is the knowledge, applied experience, enterprise processes and technology customer relationships and professional skills which are valuable assets to an organization."

Big differences often exist between a company's market value and its book value. Many of these are explained by intellectual capital assets not shown in the balance-sheet. Assets like employee knowledge, expertise and creativity, customer confidence in the company and its products, brands and franchises, information and knowledge management systems, administrative procedures, copyrights, patents and trademarks, the efficiency of company business processes and the effectiveness of company planning, forecaster and strategy-making. This has presented companies with a new challenge - how to measure, account for, manage and develop intellectual capital. The Journal of Intellectual Capital will help you do exactly that.

Key benefits

Every organization has deep reserves of Intellectual Capital or intangible assets - the assets most companies don't report on their balance sheet. In fact in our knowledge based service orientated economy, intangible assets are becoming as important as tangible ones. Intellectual Capital is probably the primary creator of value in your business.

The value most companies receive from their intellectual capital is the result of a well-planned and well-executed set of management initiatives. Use Journal of Intellectual Capital to help plan and execute the best possible intellectual capital strategy for your organization.
