COSTA, Sely Maria de Souza  and  LEITE, Fernando César Lima. Theoretical overlaps between communication and information and knowledge management in Information Science. Investig. bibl [online]. 2018, vol.32, n.74, pp.225-249. ISSN 2448-8321.

This paper examines conceptual relationships among communication of information, information management and knowledge management from the standpoint of Information Science in order to proffer a theoretical framework supported by a review of the literature and reflections researchers, who have addressed epistemological aspects of information science in regard to these issues. The approach of this research is interdisciplinary, admitting seminal authors from both information and communication science, as well as research in the field of information and knowledge management in order to describe approaches and theoretical constructions of the most influential researchers and show the key conceptual relationships common in their work. These theoretical commonalities should be taken seriously in the field of information science, which should adopt a research approach that associates communication and management across diverse contexts recognizing their conceptual communalities.

Keywords : Communication of Information; Information Management; Knowledge Management; Knowledge Creation; Knowledge Sharing and Use; Epistemological Approach of Information Science.
