Aims to fully understand the recent research focuses in domestic and foreign academic blogs, further expanding the theoretical connotation and denotation of user behavior, knowledge dissemination, knowledge services. [Coverage] More than 60 papers at home and abroad are searched via "academic blogs" as keyword from CNKI, Wanfang Data and Web of Science. [Methods] Based on the previous study, this paper investigates the current researches of user communication and knowledge content itself at two levels, points out the main problems and deeply analyzes them from three aspects including user research, knowledge dissemination and empirical research. [Results] This paper proves the necessity and feasibility of the construction of subject communication model based on academic blogs from the dimensionality of users and knowledge, drawing more attention to the tacit knowledge dissemination mode in academic blog community. [Limitations] Only analyzes and summarizes the researches of academic blogs from the two perspectives, user communication and knowledge content, while the way of knowledge dissemination is constantly getting improved with the development of the research of academic blogs. [Conclusions] It's necessary to focus on the mining and expressing of tacit knowledge in academic blogs (to transform the necessary tacit knowledge to explicit knowledge), to study on the dissemination channels of tacit knowledge, and to explore the dissemination mode of tacit knowledge.
