    Abstract

    Knowledge creation is an essential pre-requisite to ensure sustainable competitive advantage of universities in a highly net-worked and integrated globalised setting. Universities, worldwide, strive hard to achieve excellence in research through increased research productivity and its outcome. Literature shows that knowledge management systems contribute significantly to improve research productivity in higher education institutions. This paper investigates the antecedents to faculty members' intention to contribute to research knowledge management system in a private deemed university. The study has explored faculty perception towards the research knowledge management system, faculty intention to contribute and barriers of research knowledge sharing. Customised survey instrument was used to elicit information from the subjects of the study, using mail survey method. Results indicate that discipline is the most prominent predictor of faculty's intention to contribute to Research Knowledge Management System. Cultural and Institutional Support barriers to knowledge sharing have been identified and possible areas of KM application in research have been proposed.
