Vol. 9 No. 2 (2013): Breaking the boundaries to knowledge integration: society meets science within knowledge management for development
This Special Issue focuses on knowledge integration. Knowledge integration includes: knowledge production in knowledge institutions outside of the traditional scientific world, such as consultancy firms, think tanks and non-governmental organisations (NGOs); knowledge production by citizens and civic organisations looking to build counter expertise to scientific expertise; joint processes of knowledge integration initiated by non-academia (government, industry, public, NGOs) or scientists; as well as integration of multiple knowledges linked to the perspectives and roles of the various stakeholders: individual knowledge, local specialised knowledge, organisational knowledge and holistic knowledge (Brown 2011).
