The aim of this paper is to analyse correlation between the national competitiveness and research competitiveness in OECD countries. As the result of correlation analysis there are positive correlations among competitiveness indicators(GERD, SCI articles, average citation counts, JCR journal titles, patents). And SCI articles and peer-reviewed journals emanating from the developed countries or the OECD is essential to maintaining national and research competitiveness in Korea. This study also calls for further correlation analysis between research competitiveness and academic libraries.
