The purpose of this research is to understand the importance of knowledge-sharing factors such as shared goals and social trust on knowledge sharing in University of Peshawar. Data from 244 randomly selected respondents from the target population have been collected through a questionnaire. The questionnaire was tested for its validity and reliability. In order to test the hypothesis of the study, multiple regression analysis has been employed. Findings indicate that shared goals and social trust both are positive and significant predictors of knowledge sharing. In the model, shared goals happen to be the most influential factor within the overall model. This research addresses the gap on knowledge sharing in general and in Universities which appears very sparse. As a social research, the study has its limitations. The research findings have both practical as well theoretical implications. Recommendations for further research have also been provided.
