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.
