What is explicable-implicit knowledge? How should it be defined?
There seem to be implicit knowledge that is capable of being explicitly formulated. The definition of explicable-implicit is meant to capture that category.
In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan and Maxim Mirkin in 2018. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. Explicable-Implicit (Mirkin-Barseghyan-2018) is currently accepted by Scientonomy community as the best available definition of the term. It is defined as: "Propositional knowledge that hasn’t been openly formulated by the agent."

|Sciento-2018-0011||Scientonomy||28 December 2018||Accept the three-fold distinction between explicit, explicable-implicit, and inexplicable.||Accepted||The consensus on this modification emerged primarily off-line. It was agreed that "the modification should be accepted".c1 It was also agreed "that the three-fold distinction is to be accepted as it introduces a distinction between explicable-implicit and inexplicable and thus contributes to the clarity of discussions concerning implicit and explicit."c2||1 September 2019|
In Scientonomy, the accepted definition of the term is Explicable-Implicit (Mirkin-Barseghyan-2018).
Explicable-Implicit (Mirkin-Barseghyan-2018) states: "Propositional knowledge that hasn’t been openly formulated by the agent." This category encompasses that knowledge which hasn't been openly formulated by the agent but can, in principle, be open formulated. As such the category is agent-relative. The definition was first suggested by Hakob Barseghyan and Maxim Mirkin in their The Role of Technological Knowledge in Scientific Change1 and was restated by Mirkin in his The Status of Technological Knowledge in the Scientific Mosaic.
