Cook Medal

Knowledge Management Research & Practice

About the prize

Given For:

The Cook Medal is awarded in recognition of the most outstanding contribution to the philosophy, theory or practice of knowledge management published in Knowledge Management Research & Practice within the relevant period.

This years winner:

"It is with great pleasure that we announce Fausto Di Vincenzo and Daniele Mascia as the recipients of the 2018 Cook Award for the best paper in Knowledge Management Research and Practice for their paper entitled “Knowledge development and advice networks in professional organisations”.

This paper explores the personal advice networks developed by a community of hospital physicians in Italy. It uses a combination of social network analysis and regression models to document how the level of knowledge development and the extent to which knowledge is distributed amongst collaborating physicians is related to the redundancy of their advice networks as well as the different professional groups that people belong to.

The judges wish to congratulate the authors on producing a research study that simultaneously presents specialist findings whilst producing conclusions of wider interest to the general readership of this journal. The results provide valuable input for the management of knowledge networks within professional organizations and contributes to both the theory and practice of Knowledge Management."
