Happy fifth anniversary RealKM Magazine!

Five years ago today, RealKM Magazine welcomed its first readers, with the aim of promoting and supporting evidence-based knowledge management (KM). We do this by bringing you the findings of high-value knowledge management research through concise, practically-oriented articles.

Since its establishment, RealKM Magazine has cemented a vital role in the international KM landscape, becoming a key go-to resource for KM practitioners and the managers and leaders of organisations.

Over the past five years, we’ve now published more than 1,200 articles which are enjoyed by around 4,000 active monthly readers. Many of our articles have now been viewed thousands of times, with our most popular article exceeding 28,000 views.

A big THANK YOU to the RealKM Patrons!

A big fifth anniversary THANK YOU goes to our RealKM Patrons, whose generous support makes the continuation of RealKM Magazine possible.

A very special thank you goes to Dr Arthur Shelley and Stephen Bounds, who are RealKM Platinum-level Patrons, our highest supporter level. Both are well-known leaders in the global KM community:

A special mention also goes to Straits Knowledge, one of our very first RealKM Gold Patrons. Straits Knowledge has actively supported RealKM Magazine since our very beginning, but has been unable to continue as a RealKM Patron due to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
