What is this project?
The Knowledge Mobilization (KM) wiki is an experiment in co-constructing knowledge through an invited community of experts, in itself a form of knowledge mobilization.
Knowledge mobilization – also called ‘research utilization’ or ‘knowledge translation’ or ‘research dissemination’ – is a complex field with vague boundaries and multiple terminologies. It has become a subject of growing interest in the social sciences in the last twenty years or so; there are now many efforts to improve practices around KM, and more efforts to conduct empirical research in the area. This wiki provides an opportunity for those working in this area to collaborate to define ‘what we know’ and what is still uncertain or unknown.
How to take part in the wiki?
The wiki is being constructed only by users who are invited to take part. Unlike many wikis, it is not open for participation by the general public, though a public version of it will reside here once the first version is ready. Participation is being restricted to persons who are actively doing research work related to knowledge mobilization, whether in universities or in other settings.
