Happy 6th anniversary RealKM Magazine!

Six years ago today, RealKM Magazine welcomed its first readers. In the time since, it has grown to become a highly valued resource for the knowledge management (KM) community and beyond. This was recognised by the awarding of a Platinum Award in the 2020 Australian Society for Knowledge Management (AuSKM) Awards at the end of last year, our second major award.

Illustrating RealKM’s impact, over 80,000 readers visited the RealKM website during the past 12 months, and earlier this year we reached the significant milestone of half a million total article views. Many of the now 1,500 RealKM articles have been viewed many hundreds or even thousands of time, with our most popular article exceeding 33,000 views.

The 2015 founding objective of RealKM was to share “high-value knowledge management research through concise, practically-oriented articles” to a knowledge management (KM) practitioner and broader management audience that is often time-poor and lacks exposure to research evidence. As discussed in our 2020 review, RealKM has resoundingly achieved this objective, and continues to do so.

RealKM has also gone well beyond its founding objective to support other important aspects of KM capability improvement.

A big THANK YOU to the RealKM Patrons!
