Two calls for knowledge management research papers

SIG-III: 2023 International Paper Contest (IPC) Call for Papers, deadline 18 April 2023

The Special Interest Group on International Information Issues (SIG-III) of the Association for Information Science & Technology (ASIS&T) invites research papers from the library and information science (LIS) professionals of developing countries for the 23rd International Paper Contest (IPC).

The purpose of this contest is to encourage researchers from developing countries and to share their work globally. It also focuses to push advancements in information, people, and technology in contemporary societies in the context of developing countries.

Topics include knowledge management and knowledge organization.

Call for papers, Special Issue, Equity and justice in ecosystem services research, deadline 30 September 2023

Equity and justice are increasingly recognised as focal issues in biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services and the long-term safeguarding of human well-being. This is reflected in global efforts such as the United Nations Agenda 2030 or the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework of the United Nations Convention on Biodiversity, which place equity and justice at the heart of sustainable development and advocate a fair and equitable sharing of nature’s benefits.

In parallel to these efforts, equity and justice concerns are increasingly being accounted for by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, with growing attention to the recognition of diverse knowledge systems, voices and values of different stakeholders.

In response to these developments, this Special Issue aims to contribute to a better understanding of equity and justice concerns in ecosystem services research and to stimulate critical reflections on the strengths and weaknesses of the ecosystem services framework in making equity and justice issues explicit.

  1. Equity and Ecosystem Justice – whatever that is, is NOT “Knowledge Management.”

    Not saying it isn’t worth doing or sharing – but please stop diluting our KM career field with this off-topic, off-brand, niche political stuff.

    1. Agreed., However, I took it to consider what KM could contribute to Equity and Ecosystem Justice

      1. Knowledge management (KM) involves more than just organisational KM. There’s also knowledge management for development, where KM practitioners have long worked with ecosystem-related knowledge. This can be seen for example throughout the recently published MDLP report Return on Knowledge which was the focus of KM4Dev Knowledge Café 27 held at the end of last year. Equity and justice are being increasingly seen as integral aspects of knowledge management for development, for example as highlighted in Case Study 24 of the MDLP report and a recent landmark paper published by members of the KM4Dev research group.
