Abstract: The development of universities in Malaysia provide an interesting landscape of knowledge sharing among academicians. Much have been mentioned on knowledge sharing but less has been discussed on knowledge sharing between university faculty academicians, especially within their work settings. Therefore, this study is aimed to idenify the impacts of individual factors on knowledge sharing in university. This study is conducted through a set of survey instrument among academicians in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). The findings of this study showed that all the individual factors on knowledge sharing; namely trust, knowledge self-efficacy and reciprocal benefit are collectively agreed as important. This findings could provide us with a conclusion that the practice ofknowledge sharing in UKM are in good condition without any main issues related to the individual factors of the academicians themselves.
