Dear colleagues,
I am conducting a research about the adoption of knowledge management
systems for my PhD thesis in the University of South Australia.

Previous studies of Knowledge Management Systems adoption have generally
been based on the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). From this perspective,
the main inputs to knowledge management adoption have been the attitudinal
factors of perceived ease-of-use and perceived usefulness towards the
technology under investigation. Empirical investigations of KMS adoption
have either merely replicated TAM or included many other antecedents in the
model, most of which have failed to explain why such adoption is (not)

A conference paper with a literature review in knowledge management
adoption, characteristics of knowledge management usage behavior and
proposed model using a perspective of organizational citizenship behavior is
published and presented in the 4th Asia-Pacific International Conference on
Knowledge Management.

This survey is to collect data about the particular organizational and
individual/personal factors to verify my proposed hypotheses in their
effects in the adoption of knowledge management systems. If you would like
