The purpose of this study was to understand psychological underpinnings that impede knowledge sharing. The relationships between psychological ownership (PO) and knowledge sharing intention and behavior were examined using a sample of university professors. Multiple regression analysis yielded a significant relationship between PO and knowledge sharing intention but not behavior. Employee attitudes were examined as moderators of this relationship; results showed job satisfaction moderated the relationship between PO and knowledge sharing.
