Korean service industry has been rapidly growing so far and economic trends in korea is shifting to service economy. However Information Communication Technology (ICT) investment and use in service sector are still relatively low in comparison with US. Keeping the current state of the service industry in mind, this paper is to review the potential productivity growth of service industry empirically by analyzing the effect of ICT on total factor productivity after investing the ICT using outlook of Korean service industry. The results show that service sectors, with more using ICT, show high productivity growth and stable TFP change during the financial period. Sectors with lower using ICT are more sensitive to changes in the business environment when compare to sectors with highly using ICT. Concerning the period of 1997-1999, the TFP growth of most of sectors slowed down and turned to recovery immediately afterwards, 2000-2002.

Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 8, issue 2, 2010, Pages 29~42
To improve the performance of R&D investments, government has taken great efforts for advancing the structure and process in R&D systems. However, due to the drastic internal/external changes in the technological environment and the steady increase of investment scale, the necessity for a innovative approach which accomplishes returns to scale through the utilization of various external resources is emerging. In this regard, open innovation approach can minimize the possibility of government failures by strengthening the absorptive capacity of external resources and enhancing the cooperation and participation of diverse innovative participants within the R&D system. This paper evaluates the previous researches and government policies concerning the performances of government R&D investments, and presents the connectivity between open innovation and its possible contribution to the improvement of R&D investment performances.
A Study on Predictors of Entrepreneurial Intention in Different Genders: Cheonan Area in Korea
Lee, Sang-Bum ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 8, issue 2, 2010, Pages 43~54
While entrepreneurship is touted as an opportunity for women to exploit opportunities that are often not available in the traditional workplace, the rate of participation in entrepreneurship is lower for women than it is for men. What remains relatively unclear are the reasons that make this so. This regional study addresses this deficiency by examining two lines of thought related to entrepreneurial adoption: (1) the personal traits thought to contribute to entrepreneurship, and (2) the rational decision making processes that are believed to form a basis for entrepreneurial endeavors. My results find men and women to be different in both respects, with ambiguity tolerance, internal locus of control, perceived effectiveness of entrepreneurship, and having an entrepreneurial parent all positively predicting entrepreneurial intention for men. For women, perceived effectiveness of entrepreneurship and achievement motivation predict entrepreneurial intention. Women also rate the potential reward of entrepreneurship as significantly lower than do men, possibly because women entrepreneurs objectively face more obstacles than men with regard to obtaining financing and other stakeholder relations.

Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 8, issue 2, 2010, Pages 89~102
The present thesis aims to analyze in consideration of recent changes in teaching environment in the universities the commercial digital contents and e-learning courses provided by the libraries, and to propose the ways to encourage university library service needed under the current situation. A survey of professors and students upon the quality of commercial digital contents service provided by the libraries in I University was made to measure its influence upon e-learning courses. The quality of commercial digital contents service provided by libraries was measured through Digital Library Service Quality Index (which will be referred as DL-SQL Model from here), which is used as a model to examine the Digital Library Service, with partial adjustments of 4 levels (information system service, digital books service, customer service quality, and customer community service) and 7 components (search possibility, an exclusive organization and interface, accessibility, digital books, customer support service, personalized service, and customer community). Among the library services in regard to digital contents, "customer service" and "customer community service" were analyzed to have stronger influence upon e-learning teaching and studying than quality-based service for "information system" and "digital books". Consequently, it is concluded that customized information service provided by the library for the professors who teach e-learning courses and their students is more influential to supporting e-learning courses than quantity pushing service through purchasing commercial digital contents, upon which the direction of digital contents policy to provide library services for e-learning courses should be based.

Cho, Byung-Ki ; Koh, Chan ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 8, issue 2, 2010, Pages 103~114
People generally focus on the supply side when conducting a study on the movie industry. However, to understand the movie industry better, one needs to analyze both sides - the demand and supply of movies. This paper analyzes demand-side factors that have long been taken for granted in Korea's movie industry. The study used data for 1991~2008 on the following demand-factors : the average ticket prices, the number of working days and hours, the average personal income, the number of spectators for the two major professional sports, cable TV, the number of movies released each year and the number of movie screens. This study shows that ticket prices do not conform to the law of demand. According to the law of demand, increasing price leads to a decline in demand. However, in reality, the number of viewers went up along with ticket prices. The study found that demand for movies was correlated to income levels and leisure time. An increase in the number of leisure hours and income levels pushed up demand. Contrary to general belief, a growth in the availability of substitutes, such as professional sports(soccer and baseball), did not result in a fall in demand for movies. The audiences for both sports and movies grew simultaneously as the amount of leisure time increased. Contrary to the general expectations that more diversified genres of movies will draw larger audiences by satisfying different individual tastes, the diversification had little impact, but the number of movie screens was positively correlated with audience size. In sum, changes in ticket prices and the quantity of substitutes had little influence on demand in the movie industry. Rather, it was the supply side of the industry that induced demand.

The speed of change on information technology is very fast, so it demands a continuous competency development in IT human resource management. If the competency development for IT personnel can not keep up with the change of Technology, IT personnel cannot accomplish their IT job under new IT environment. For this reason, many companies have tried to manage IT organization separately and IT job system on the technology basis. Although the training of IT is different from that of other field in feature, few studies about IT human resources system have been conduced. Therefore this study focuses on the training system of IT personnel and suggests the framework for institutionalizing the operation policy and the individual process through a case study methodology. This paper chose one company as a case study which implemented the training system of IT personnel recently, and the proposed framework based on the literature review from this study applied to a company. The study shows that IT job system needs to be reasonably established, job descriptions should be appropriate to IT job, and there exist two training paths according to two career path - Specialist and Generalist. For the purpose of high performance in IT division, the training manager should understand IT job system, the people who need training, and keep an eye on the IT trends and new IT skills.

Yoon, Chang-Sul ;
Journal of Digital Convergence, volume 8, issue 2, 2010, Pages 147~160
Internet shopping mall business has taken its place as a major form of e-commerce and is evolving constantly. At the same time, disputes of various kinds are also arising in proportion to the evolution. A typical example is when a consumer purchased a product from an internet shopping mall and the seller wants to cancel or withdraw the sales contract saying that he miswrote the price or other important information when posting the product on the internet. It's about the error on the seller's part. Civil Law Chapter 109, legal principles on errors, appears to assume the case of natural declaration of intention. It was observed that legal principles on errors defined by the Civil Law are also applied in internet shopping malls, where declaration of intention is made electronically. In transactions involving internet shopping malls, where the seller's indication and advertisement constitutes an inducement to offer, the seller may cancel a contract concluded by the consumer's offer and the seller's acceptance if the seller finds errors on his part, and adequacy of the cancellation should be judged depending on specific cases. That is, the judgment of the important ground that comprises prerequisites for cancellation and presence of negligence may depend on how much difference there is between the normal price and the posted price on a specific case. Also, considering the cases where negligence was not perceived on the seller's miswriting of the price, the seller may cancel the transaction in a similar situation.
