This is my first editorial, as I have just recently become the editor of the Electronic Journal of Knowledge Management, following a long period as a paper reviewer. I feel very honoured to be able to contribute to the continued success of our journal at a challenging time for the KM discipline. While the field has evolved significantly since its emergence in the early 1990s and attracted a high level of interest across both the academic and the practitioner communities, any comprehensive review of recent publications across the discipline might produce some sense of déjà vu, as many are concerned that limited progress is being made in the broader recognition of the discipline in the academic community and in the adoption of good KM practices.
