Based on the analysis of knowledge sharing process and community member types in Wiki community, Bandura’s social cognitive theory is employed to discuss the factors influencing knowledge sharing behavior from the aspects of both Wiki community environment and personal cognition of community members. Strategies that stimulate knowledge sharing behavior are also proposed, which are of great importance to promote the health and sustainable development of Wiki community.
