Information and knowledge management has emerged as major tools for collecting and regulating available data to spread over an entire organ.The present study is to identify the links and boundaries between the two management systems. Co-word analysis method is obtained as research method since along with other scientometric techniques is a parameter for content analysis. Articles accepted for domestic journals and conferences constitute the population of this study. The current research findings indicate that there are 230 and 123 keywords in the field of knowledge management and information management, respectively among which only 8 words are of shared use. In other words, the lexical boundary is 8.52%. More specifically, the boundary is made up of the concept of recorded knowledge. The results also showed that knowledge management provides the ground for all management areas to some extent on the other hand, information management prepares the situation for studying on areas such as medical records or science. We found that information science can be considered as a shared boundary between the two studied areas. Extracting documented keywords for these two management areas is still another finding of this study.
Keywords: Information management, knowledge management, Co-word analysis, Co-ccurrence Analysis, Science maps, Visualizing Concepts
