Abstract

Purpose: this study aims to measure the intention of the University of Baghdad’s academics to conduct knowledge sharing behaviour. The study also opts to contribute towards addressing the significant gap in the literature on knowledge sharing practices within Iraqi higher education institutions; involving distinct management procedures, infrastructure, as well as cultural and political implications. Design/methodology/approach: the University of Baghdad academics’ intention to conduct knowledge sharing behaviour is measured by testing the theory of planned behaviour (Ajzen, 1991) three factors of intention determinants including; attitude towards knowledge sharing, subjective norms and perceived behavioural control. A survey questionnaire was distributed among a sample of 226 academics in the University of Baghdad whereas the collected data was analysed through the IBM software SPSS. Originality/value: the study findings provide a novel insight and contribute to bridging the literature gap by highlighting the intention of the University of Baghdad academics to conduct knowledge sharing behaviour. Practical implications: the outcome of this research may guide policy-makers in the concerned international organisations as well as in Iraqi higher education institutions by revealing the extent to which the University of Baghdad academics are prepared to conduct knowledge sharing behaviour, of which would assist in making informed decisions on knowledge sharing practices.
