Knowledge and Process Management operates an online submission and peer review system that allows authors to submit articles online and track their progress via a web interface. Please read the remainder of these instructions to authors and then visit http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/kpm and navigate to the Knowledge and Process Management online submission site. IMPORTANT: Please check whether you already have an account in the system before trying to create a new one. If you have reviewed or authored for the journal in the past year it is likely that you will have had an account created.
Pre-submission English-language editing
Authors for whom English is a second language may choose to have their manuscript professionally edited before submission to improve the English. A list of independent suppliers of editing services can be found at http://wileyeditingservices.com/en/. All services are paid for and arranged by the author, and use of one of these services does not guarantee acceptance or preference for publication.
All papers must be submitted via the online system.
File types. Preferred formats for the text and tables of your manuscript are .doc, .rtf, .ppt, .xls. LaTeX files may be submitted provided that an .eps or .pdf file is provided in addition to the source files. Figures may be provided in .tiff or .eps format.
Please note: This journal does not accept Microsoft Word 2007 documents at this time. Please use Word’s “Save As” option to save your document as a .doc file type. If you try to upload a Word 2007 document you will be prompted to save .docx files as .doc files.

LaTeX users. For reviewing purposes you should upload a single .pdf that you have generated from your source files. You must use the File Designation "Main Document" from the dropdown box.
Non-LaTeX users. Editable source files must be uploaded at this stage. Tables must be on separate pages after the reference list, and not be incorporated into the main text. Figures should be uploaded as separate figure files.
LaTeX users. When submitting your revision you must still upload a single .pdf that you have generated from your revised source files.

Permission grants - if the manuscript contains extracts, including illustrations, from other copyright works (including material from on-line or intranet sources) it is the author's responsibility to obtain written permission from the owners of the publishing rights to reproduce such extracts using the Wiley Permission Request Form.
Submission of a manuscript will be held to imply that it contains original unpublished work and is not being submitted for publication elsewhere at the same time.
The language of the journal is English. 12-point type in one of the standard fonts: Times, Helvetica, or Courier is preferred. It is not necessary to double-line space your manuscript. Tables must be on separate pages after the reference list, and not be incorporated into the main text. Figures should be uploaded as separate figure files.
During the submission process you must enter the full title, short title of up to 70 characters and names and affiliations of all authors. Give the full address, including email, telephone and fax, of the author who is to check the proofs.
Include the name(s) of any sponsor(s) of the research contained in the paper, along with grant number(s).
Enter an abstract of up to 250 words for all articles [except book reviews]. An abstract is a concise summary of the whole paper, not just the conclusions, and is understandable without reference to the rest of the paper. It should contain no citation to other published work.
Include up to six keywords that describe your paper for indexing purposes.
Reference style. References should be quoted in the text as name and year within parentheses and listed at the end of the paper alphabetically. Where reference is made to more than one work by the same author published in the same year, identify each citation of the text as follows: (Collins, 1998a, b). Where three or more authors are listed in the reference list, please cite in the text as (Collins et al., 1998). All references must be complete and accurate. If necessary, cite unpublished or personal work in the text but do not include it in the reference list. Where possible the DOI* for the reference should be included at the end of the reference. Online citations should include date of access. References should be listed in the following style:
Donate MJ, Guadamillas F. 2010. The effect of organizational culture on knowledge management practices and innovation. Knowledge and Process Management 17: 82-94.
Hansen BE. 1993. The likelihood ratio test under non-standard conditions: testing the Markov switching model of GNP. In Nonlinear Dynamics, Chaos and Econometrics, Pesaran MH, Potter SM (eds). Wiley: Chichester.
*The Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is an identification system for intellectual property in the digital environment. Developed by the International DOI Foundation on behalf of the publishing industry, its goals are to provide a framework for managing intellectual content, link customers with publishers, facilitate electronic commerce, and enable automated copyright management.
Illustrations. Upload each figure as a separate file in either .tiff or .eps format, the figure number and the top of the figure indicated. Compound figures e.g. 1a, b, c should be uploaded as one figure. Tints are not acceptable. Lettering must be of a reasonable size that would still be clearly legible upon reduction, and consistent within each figure and set of figures. Where a key to symbols is required, please include this in the artwork itself, not in the figure legend. All illustrations must be supplied at the correct resolution:
Black and white and colour photos - 300 dpi
Graphs, drawings, etc - 800 dpi preferred; 600 dpi minimum
Combinations of photos and drawings (black and white and colour) - 500 dpi
Colour policy. The cost of printing colour illustrations in the print journal issues will be charged to the author.
Further information. For accepted manuscripts the publisher will supply proofs to the corresponding author prior to publication. This stage is to be used only to correct errors that may have been introduced during the production process. Prompt return of the corrected proofs, preferably within two days of receipt, will minimise the risk of the paper being held over to a later issue. Once your article is published online no further amendments can be made. Free access to the final PDF offprint of your article will be available via author services only. Please therefore sign up for author services if you would like to access your article PDF offprint and enjoy the many other benefits the service offers. Further reprints and copies of the journal may be ordered. There is no page charge to authors.
