The purpose of this paper is to study the existing wikis and the experiences of implementing wikis at the national and international levels. The result will be designing a specialized wiki in the field of knowledge management by describing the specialized terms of knowledge. The present study method is applied in terms of purpose, which was done by the documentary method. It should be noted that the Delphi method is used to document the framework. The findings described eleven cases of research related to the implementation of the wiki and its format, which was taxonomic. To provide a wiki framework, a review of previous sources and research related to the field of wiki building was done, and then the template was presented by studying the existing cases. Finally, a framework for creating the taxonomy of knowledge management in the form of a wiki is provided. Also, this research has two appendices: The first appendix provides the basic terms to be included in the taxonomic structure and be completed by users and professionals over time. The second appendix contains some examples of different wiki pages for patterning.
