© Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018. Many governments have been struggling to build a higher education system that is innovative to the requests of national knowledge-based development. It is essential to explore knowledge sharing behavior (KSB) from environmental and individual perspectives. It can help to contribute to innovative work behavior (IWB) towards knowledge-based development initiatives, in particular regarding the phenomenon of knowledge sharing (KS) in higher education institutions (HEIs). The aim of this research is to propose a research model based on social cognitive theory (SCT) that comprises environmental factors (subjective norms, trust), personal factors (knowledge self-efficacy, enjoyment in helping others, organizational rewards, reciprocal benefits, and psychological ownership of knowledge), KSB and IWB. We advance to conduct a survey to examine our proposed conceptual model. It is expected that this research will contribute to deeper understanding of the effects of personal and environmental factors and KSB on IBW within HEIs. Implications and future work in this area are also proposed.
