El propósito del presente artículo es analizar la evolución de las investigaciones sobre ocultar conocimiento (knowledge-hiding), por cuanto consideramos que puede tratarse de una situación más común que la esperada de compartir conocimiento (knowledge sharing), para el caso de organizaciones de investigación.El presente artículo analiza la evolución de las investigaciones sobre ocultar conocimiento (knowledge-hiding), debido a que consideramos que, puede ser más común que lo considerado en el estándar social de compartir conocimiento (knowledge sharing) en organizaciones de investigación.


En el estudio se identificó que las investigaciones han ido migrando desde Canadá, Holanda y Noruega (2012-2013) hacia países asiáticos como China, India y Pakistán en los últimos años (2018-2022). Esta evolución del entendimiento sobre ocultar conocimiento incluye: el concepto de “Gestión del conocimiento” (2018); la relación con “compartir conocimiento” (2019); el análisis de los factores dentro del constructo ocultar conocimiento como: “emotional exhaustion”, “organization identification”, “distrust in supervisor” (2020); “relational climate”, “competive working environment”, “working place bulling”, “awareness” (2021); y “evasive knowledge hiding”, “creativity”, “diversity” (2022) entre los más comunes términos usados para la investigación de porqué se oculta el conocimiento en las organizaciones.
