In science:

This paper discusses Collaborative Information Retrieval (CIR) and how it culminates to knowledge creation. It explains how created knowledge is organized and structured.
Collaborative Knowledge Creation and Management in Information Retrieval
The data and knowledge layer consists of the various database and knowledge base used for storing captured knowledge and data.
Collaborative Knowledge Creation and Management in Information Retrieval
In this paper we considered knowledge creation and management through collaborative information retrieval. We supported the assertion that information retrieval is a social as well as a cognitive process having knowledge production as the final goal.
Collaborative Knowledge Creation and Management in Information Retrieval
Our major focus was on the exploitation of tacit knowledge of collaborators during CIR to create explicit knowledge and to facilitate tacit knowledge acquisition.
