This study presents an analysis of a total of 101 papers on the theme of international research cooperation by nation, gathered from Web of Science. The findings of this study show that 20 nations published papers on the theme of international research cooperation with the ranking of U.K.(27 papers, 26.7%), the Netherlands(20 papers, 19.8%), U.S.(19 papers, 18.8%), Brazil and Spain(5 papers, 5.0%), Russia(4 papers, 4.0%), etc. South Korea was found to be in the lower ranking group(2 papers, 2.0%), suggesting that it still has a lower level of international research cooperation. Thus, particularly, researchers at universities by institution and humanities by discipline should activate the publication of papers on international research cooperation by expanding relevant projects so that the international research capabilities of South Korea should be bolstered.
