Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 4, 2008, Pages 1~20
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.4.001
The purpose of this study is to scrutinize the copyright issue under Open Access environment. A survey has been carried out to investigate researchers` awareness and recognitions about such issues. For this, bioinformatics researchers were selected and surveyed. Descriptive statistics method is employed for analysis of collected data. The findings of this study summarized as follow. (1) Although the researchers regarded the Open Access a positive initiative, the perceptions about open access were very low. (2) The researchers demanded possession of copyright depending on type of research information. (3) Many agencies did not required the transfer of copyright to the researcher. Thus, there is a possibility of dispute regarding copyright issues between researchers and agencies. (4) The researchers are willing to participate in open access activity on the assumption that their study is used in legitimate objective. On the basis of these findings, suggestions are added in as an impetus to lower the barrier against a copyright and higher the approach to information seekers and information providers.

DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.4.021
The Result of this study (1)In the case of KDI school of public policy and management, since it makes up a very interesting and diversified racial environment that shapes the multinational global community, there must be careful considerations for foreign students together with wide publicity about Korea on the side of the school headquarters. (2)The library must become familiar with the ways to utilize outside organizations in order to provide user education to the foreign students. (3)In order to make it perfectly sure for them to provide not only the secondary materials such as bibliography, index, and abstract, but also the necessary full-text from the preparatory stage of the students` studies. (4)The library must grasp the students` needs through communication and must promote the efficiency of library operation by introducing an information service strategy measure similar to that of FISP so they can acknowledge and provide necessary information to fulfill the students` academic needs in advance.

Kim, Seong-Hee ; Eom, Jae-Eun ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 4, 2008, Pages 47~66
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.4.047
This study introduced the machine learning algorithms to overcome the many different limitations involved with manual classification and to provide the users with faster and more accurate classification service. The experiments objects of the study were consisted of 100 literature titles for each of the eight subject categories in MeSH. The algorithms used to the experiments included Neural network, C5.0, CHAID and KNN. As results, the combination of the neural network and C5.0 technique recorded classification accuracy of 83.75%, which was 2.5% and 3.75% higher than that of the neural network alone and C5.0 alone, respectively. The number represented the highest accuracy rates among the four classification experiments. Thus the use of the neural network and C5.0 technique together will result in higher accuracy rates than the techniques individually.

The open access repository means the knowledge information repository for the producer and the user to share in order for all users of the world to freely access the information free of charge with no legal, economic and technological barrier. This study analyzes and compares the functions offered by each repository by classifying the repository into the organizational repository (dCollection, DSpace@MIT) and the thematic repository (arXiv, PubMed Central) and evaluates the user-centered usability based on the analyzed data. This study at the current times, so called as the Web 2.0 era in which the free access and sharing of the information is important, can be said to have the meaning that the result from the usability evaluation on the open access repository will be used as the fundamental data for developing the future repository.

Evaluation indicators reflecting recent digital environments are needed as a tool to increase research library`s competitiveness and productivity. Especially, research libraries have different subject backgrounds and there are many one-person libraries. In this study, we developed new evaluation indicators based on the draft indicators made in 2007 considering these environmental elements so that it may be used easily and applicable to various research libraries. In developing the new indicators, we reviewed other library type`s indicators and listened carefully to the comments from expert librarians in the research libraries through several meetings. After developing the indicators, we made a survey in order to verify its validity as well as its effectiveness and also made a test evaluation for research libraries. The proposed indicators will contribute in evaluating the current level of Korean research libraries and promoting them to the future-oriented libraries.
A Study on Ontology-based Keywords Structuring for Efficient Information Retrieval
Song, In-Seok ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 4, 2008, Pages 121~154
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.4.121
In this paper, a ontology-based keyword structuring method is proposed to represent the knowledge structure of scholarly documents and to make inferences from the semantic relationships holding among them. The characteristics of thesaurus as a knowledge organization system(KOS) for subject heading is critically reviewed from the information retrieval point of view. The domain concepts are identified and classified by analysis of the information activities occurring in a general research process based on scholarly sensemaking model. The ontological structure of keyword set is defined in terms of the semantic relationship of the canonical concepts which constitute scholarly documents such as journal articles. As a result, each ontologically structured keyword set of a document represents the knowledge structure of the corresponding document as semantic index. By means of the axioms and inference rules defined for information needs, users can efficiently explore the scholarly communication network built on the semantic relationship among documents in an analytic way based on the scholarly sensemaking model in oder to efficiently retrieve the relevant information for problem solving.

Sung, Hyun-Il ; Yim, In-Sung ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 4, 2008, Pages 155~171
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.4.155
We constructed the integrated management system of distributed astronomical data of Bohyunsan Optical Astronomy Observatory(BOAO), Sobaeksan Optical Astronomy Observatory (SOAO), and Mt. Lemmon Optical Astronomy Observatory(LOAO). The observed data was stored in the archive of the observatory and MySQL table is saved in the integrated management system. There are data archive managers in the observatories and they manage the integrated management system such as data storing, head information extraction, table generation, and management of web pages, etc. The users can search and download all the data in the integrated management system web page. The concept of this system - send queries from web page to the observatory archives - is the same of the basic concept of virtual observatory. This research is one of the main work in the Korean virtual observatory which is take part in the international virtual observatory alliance.
Mash-up System for Searching Herb using Herb Ontology
Kim, Sang-Kyun ; Kim, Chul ; Jang, Hyun-Chul ; Yea, Sang-Jun ; Song, Yea.Mi-Young ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 4, 2008, Pages 173~186
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.4.173
We propose a mash-up system for searching herb, which can search the herbal information in oriental medicine fields using the various Open APIs. We in particular developed and opened two Open APIs which enable to search papers and projects in oriental medicine fields with the general Open APIs. These Open APIs can share and provide the expert knowledge in oriental medicine fields. The information for a herb in oriental medicine fields has various names and descriptions according to their sources unlike other fields. Thus, it is hard to get the results using one or two keywords such as the general search engines. To solve this problem, we in this paper propose a way to provide the more exact and extensive search results using the herb ontology with one hundred herbal information in oriental medicine fields.

This article minutely examines functional appraisal process that focuses on not content but function in which the records are created. Taking everything into consideration, functional appraisal in electronic record environments constitutes consecutive process that is performed organically in pre-creation stage of records. Ultimately functional appraisal in electronic record environments is organic process selecting electronic records across phases of whole record management, which assure business context and recordness, and need to run organization and perform business.

Babu, B. Ramesh ; Ramakrishnan, J. ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 39, issue 4, 2008, Pages 215~240
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2008.39.4.215
This paper presents a scientometric analysis of national patterns of research output and priorities in the sub-fields of Hepatitis covered in three bibliographic databases namely MEDLINE, CINAHL and IPA. The literature covered in three databases for the period 1984-2003 was considered. We have already discussed the Trends in the Growth of Literature on Hepatitis in our previous paper. Therefore in this paper only sub-fields analysis is presented. It has been found that the Hepatitis literature output has been grouped in 23 major sub-fields based on databases covered. It was found that there were high priorities for some of the sub-fields of Hepatitis research during 1984-1993. It was found that the research priority profile was more or less homogenous since majority of the sub-fields are showing either below or above average levels of priority profile. In the first phase of the research period covering from 1984-1993, there are high priorities in 10 sub-fields in USA followed by 9 in UK and 8 in Germany, 7 each in Canada, Russia and Netherlands. On the other hand, in the second phase (1994-2003) there are high priorities for 10 sub-fields in Germany, 9 in UK, 8 in USA, 7 each in Canada, Russia and Netherlands. In the productivity of Pediatrics sub-field, India is in the third position.
