<jats:p>Importance of knowledge sharing is undeniable; however, a number of studies have shown it is not always beneficial. The purpose of this study is to breakdown existing definitions of knowledge sharing to understand what elements of it might be considered in quality dimension measures and based on those synthesize a more comprehensive definition.</jats:p>

<jats:sec>
<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Design/methodology/approach</jats:title>
<jats:p>Through bibliometric investigation, the most influential definitions were investigated and the concept of knowledge sharing was redefined according to a process structure with the help of Grounded Theory.</jats:p>
</jats:sec>
<jats:sec>
<jats:title content-type="abstract-subheading">Findings</jats:title>
<jats:p>The research has revealed the dual nature of knowledge sharing, that is, knowledge as input and sharing as a process. Related quality measures were proposed.</jats:p>
