Abstract: The present study characterizes the global dynamics of academic publications about Knowledge Sharing and Information Security through a research restricted to articles and conference proceedings present in Thomson Reuters Web of Science. It is an exploratory and descriptive study for which techniques recommended by Bibliometrics were used. Thus, during the period established for this study, a total of 78 authors contributed to 28 publications, distributed by 17 titles of journals and 19 conferences proceedings, with almost 60% of these authors contributing with three or more publications. About 60% of the scientific output was the responsibility of Malaysia, Sweden, Iran, Greece and England whose research reaches respectively 18%, 11%, 11%, 11%, 11% of total productivity, showing a great geographical dispersion. However, there is some concentration in terms of scientific journals and research areas, being identified, mostly, the Computer Science, Information Sciences and Engineering areas. Due to this confluence and constant interaction with other disciplines, apparently the field of Knowledge Sharing has not yet crystallized as a theoretical territory. The articles identified related to Knowledge Sharing and Information Security were submitted to a bibliometric analysis using VOSviewer software. This method was applied in two phases, primarily, a descriptive analysis was conducted and then a co-citation analysis was performed recurring to VOSviewer software. The results obtained from co-citation analysis include two clusters, namely: cluster 1 - Information Security and sharing of knowledge under the user's perspective and cluster 2 - Knowledge Sharing and Information Security under the organisation’s perspective and translate a gap in terms of research about Knowledge Sharing and Information Security, thus pointing to a path to be explored. There is also the need to foster new research and strengthen the networks of researchers, in order to broaden the framework and theoretical crystallization as an autonomous scientific discipline.
