Nowadays, the amount of scientific knowledge produced is overwhelming and it is clear that it will grow even more. Shaknoma (Shared Knowledge Manager) is a tool useful to make available and share the people's individual knowledge. The activities carried out on this tool respond to a model that ensure the input, validation, use and evolution of the knowledge. The process is implemented through four major components: the shared repository, the management model (see Herrera et al. 2000), the representation language of the knowledge, and the collaborative environment. The knowledge management model provides decision-making mechanisms, which mainly includes discussion and voting activities. As a way of structuring and graphic representation, Shaknoma uses a language based on conceptual maps (Novak 1984). The information repository does not store only knowledge, but also the information of its use and evolution.
