The Journal of the Knowledge Economy is the first journal to focus on the dynamics of the knowledge-based economy, with an emphasis on the role of knowledge creation, diffusion, and application across the spectrum of organizations, industries, nations, and regions. The journal incorporates insights from the fields of economics, management, law, sociology, anthropology, psychology, and political science to shed new light on the evolving role of knowledge and its economic implications. Articles emphasize empirical studies, underscoring a comparative approach, and, to a lesser extent, case studies and theoretical articles. The journal balances practice/application and theory/concepts.

  • Interview with the Editor-in-Chief

    “The old ways have worn themselves out. We are having both a crisis of democracy and a climate crisis. They are both the result of a limited way of thinking.” Professor Elias Carayannis, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the Knowledge Economy, the Journal of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and numerous other Springer Nature projects, expounds on this idea in an interview here.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
