Louise Rasmussen presents on KM as management innovation at i3 (credit I. Buunk)
Seven full papers developed from presentations made at last year’s
Information: interactions and impact (i3) conference are now available online as peer-reviewed journal articles. Together they contribute to a special issue of to be published in spring 2016. Journal of Information Science ( JIS)
Two of these papers are contributions from members of my team within the
Centre for Social Informatics at Edinburgh Napier University. The first concerns Knowledge Management as a management innovation, and the other discusses the role of the census as an information source in policy-making. Continue reading

At i3 2015
AHRC-funded research student
Lynn Killick, who works with me within the Centre for Social Informatics at Edinburgh Napier University, presented a paper entitled The role of the census in public policy-making: information practices of policy makers at the i3 conference last June.
Subsequently Lynn and I worked with Lynn’s two other supervisors to develop this material into
an article entitled ‘The census as an information source in public policy-making’ for the . This will appear in a special issue of Journal of Information Science the journal in June 2016. Continue reading
Back in June 2015 Dr Louise Rasmussen presented a paper at the i3 conference entitled A KM implementation as management innovation: the impact of an agent of change. Louise and I have since developed this work into an article for the and it has just been accepted for publication. Journal of Information Science, The paper will appear in a special issue of the journal in June 2016.
The theme of
the paper is the introduction and adoption of a Knowledge Management programme within a large distributed public sector agency in Europe. It discusses in detail the results of research that sought to provide insight into the adoption process associated with management innovations, with a focus on decision-making. As well as extending theoretical perspectives on KM, this work developed a model that can be used by KM practitioners as a tool for project management at particular points of the management innovation process, taking into account local contexts.
full text of the accepted paper is available for download. The slides for the earlier conference presentation can also be found on my SlideShare account.

The programme for has just been published. This international conference, held on a biennial basis in Aberdeen, brings together an international community of academic and practitioner researchers to explore the quality and effectiveness of the interactions between people and information, and how such interactions can bring about change. This year it takes place at the Information, interactions and impact: i3 2015 Aberdeen Business School, Robert Gordon University from Tuesday June 23rd to Friday June 26th. I’m delighted that six paper proposals that I co-authored for submission to the conference have been accepted, and they can now be seen in the programme.
Five of the six papers draw on projects currently undertaken by colleagues and research students within the
Centre for Social Informatics: Christine Irving; Lynn Killick; John Mowbray; Frances Ryan; and Louise Rasmussen. These are:

John Mowbray’s winning poster
We currently have eight research students undertaking doctoral studies in the
Centre for Social Informatics (CSI) working on a variety of projects. While the goal of our students is to complete their theses within the degree registration period, it’s also important that they share news of their work as it progresses. A number of our current students have recently been busy taking advantage of opportunities to disseminate their research. New work on success factors in information systems projects co-authored by a PhD graduate has also been accepted for publication.
