The JKM Special Issue on Knowledge Based Development has been published annually since 2006 (September). This is the call for papers for the 2010 annual SI on Knowledge-based Development. Each issue includes both commissioned and submitted papers.

Submissions for publication of original research, case studies, strategies, tools and techniques on Knowledge Based Development are welcomed. A distinctive selection criterion is that the level of analysis  centers on supra-organizational knowledge processes, be it at the inter-organizational, regional, urban, national, international or global levels.

Some of the topics of interest are:

  • Dynamics of social knowledge-based value creation
  • Identification, measurement and strategic development of social intellectual capital
  • National, regional and urban KBD planning and development
  • Knowledge Cities concepts and models
  • Descriptions and assessments of implementation cases
  • Metrics, benchmarkings and comparative analyses
  • Social accounting and strategy deployment
  • Social learning networks and social knowledge bases
  • Knowledge citizenship, access to information and distributed participation
  • ITCs and social bases of instrumental capital
  • KBD policy and cultural issues
  • Global marginalization and the knowledge divide
  • Systems perspectives on KBD
  • Radical KBD as a strategic and disruptive paradigm

All commssioned and submitted papers are expected to fully comply with JKM standards and are subject to regular review procedures.
