The Knowledge Management for Development Journal is a peer-reviewed, community-based journal on knowledge management for development – for and by development practitioners, researchers and policymakers - and is closely related to the KM4Dev community. The Journal publishes research papers, case studies, interviews, stories and 'community notes' which have a knowledge management component and relate to international development. Development in this specific context relates to such topics as aid/assistance to developing countries, international cooperation and poverty alleviation. Examples of relevant sub-sectors include health, agriculture, education, gender empowerment, policy issues, and so forth.
The journal is produced by volunteers. You can always contact the senior editors of the journal through: KM4DJfirstname.lastname@example.org or editor in chief Sarah Cummings at: email@example.com
