The domain of LED is analyzed for describing the current status of Korea's R&D in the domain comparing with those of others quantitatively. Fourteen sub-domains of LED manufacturing technology are selected and the time span for analysis is ten-year: 2001-2010. Bibiliometric analysis is performed by the unit of publication, core researcher, institution and country. Strategical diagram is also produced with devised two indicators: NGI and NPI. As a result, Korea is competitive in the area of Chip Scale Package, but R&D supports in another promising areas, such as large-caliber sapphire wafer, are necessary. It is also revealed that research activities are expanded dominantly in academia, but practical technologies are developed in industrial circle. It is suggested that to support core corporate and to encourage industrial-academic collaboration is essential for systematical technology development and high achievement in prominent areas.

This research has investigated the cyber university students' awareness of the portal service of the digital library. In order to identify characteristics of the cyber university students, the research examined demographic characteristics of the students and library usage status. Awareness on the portal service was also analyzed in accordance with the characteristics of the users. The analysis showed that the most needed service was concise/full search service, which was the most frequently used service. The students were most satisfied with the liaison service; service awareness of several libraries showed statistically significant results depending on age, occupation. Based on the analysis, the research proposed the following measures to increase the use of the digital library of cyber university students: active PR on library service, and intensifying the library user education.

In the modern scientific R&D, the efficient acquisition, curation, analysis and visualization are core elements of the science development. The value of scientific data is very important in data intensive research. An output of scientific data is drastically increasing. However we have only each individual system of scientific data in now. Therefore We feel a lack of efficiency of scientific data. In this paper, We analyze an economic ripple effects in terms of production inducement effect, added value inducement effect, labor inducement effect and forward backward linkage effect of national scientific data center construction using an input-out analysis of the bank of Korea(2009). We also examine an economic propriety of national scientific data center construction.
Query by Visual Example: A Comparative Study of the Efficacy of Image Query Paradigms in Supporting Visual Information Retrieval
Venters, Colin C. ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 3, 2011, Pages 71~94
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.3.071
Query by visual example is the principal query paradigm for expressing queries in a content-based image retrieval environment. Query by image and query by sketch have long been purported as being viable methods of query formulation yet there is little empirical evidence to support their efficacy in facilitating query formulation. The ability of the searcher to express their information problem to an information retrieval system is fundamental to the retrieval process. The aim of this research was to investigate the query by image and query by sketch methods in supporting a range of information problems through a usability experiment in order to contribute to the gap in knowledge regarding the relationship between searchers' information problems and the query methods required to support efficient and effective visual query formulation. The results of the experiment suggest that query by image is a viable approach to visual query formulation. In contrast, the results strongly suggest that there is a significant mismatch between the searchers information problems and the expressive power of the query by sketch paradigm in supporting visual query formulation. The results of a usability experiment focusing on efficiency (time), effectiveness (errors) and user satisfaction show that there was a significant difference, p<0.001, between the two query methods on all three measures: time (Z=-3.597, p<0.001), errors (Z=-3.317, p<0.001), and satisfaction (Z=-10.223, p<0.001). The results also show that there was a significant difference in participants perceived usefulness of the query tools Z=-4.672, p<0.001.
A Research on the OASIS, an Web Archive in Korea, Revisited
Yoon, Cheong-Ok ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 3, 2011, Pages 95~116
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.3.095
The purpose of this research is to examine the characteristics and problems of the OASIS, an web archive, developed and operated by the National Library of Korea. An analysis of 55 websites collected in seven subject areas, including 'Philosophy', 'Religion', 'Literature', 'Social Sciences-Politics', and 'Technology-Technology' in the OASIS website shows the following problems: lack of balance in subject distribution, lack of authority or scholarly value of some contents, unclear application of selection criteria for personal creators/publishers, ambiguous definition of 'archiving', and inappropriate counting of collection and usage statistics. Some comprehensive and systematic efforts to improve the OASIS contents seem to be urgently needed.

Noh, Young-Hee ; Ahn, In-Ja ; Park, Mi-Young ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 3, 2011, Pages 117~145
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.3.117
This research tries to develop standards of library goods and managerial guidance. It is developed to make buying and managing library goods efficient in promoting environmental and digital-friendly library, and to set a standard guidance of library goods. The research divides 117 library goods into 6 categories, and develops a table of recommended standard and managerial guidance of library goods. The table has 11 indicators of information, which includes the name of each library goods, classification code, identification number of 'Narajangteo', definitions of the goods, purpose and usage, type and size, structure, place to install, goods management, and note. The research hopes to be reflected in library related laws, standards, and manuals, and finally to standardize library goods in the national level.
A Study on the OpenURL META-TAG of Observation Research Data for Metadata Interoperability
Kim, Sun-Tae ; Lee, Tae-Young ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 3, 2011, Pages 147~165
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.3.147
This paper presents a core meta-tag of OpenURL written in Key/Encoded-Value format in the field of observation research, to distribute the scientific data, produced in many experimentations and observations, on the OpenURL service architecture. So far, the OpenURL hasn't supplied a meta-tag represented scientific data because it has focused on circulation of scholarly and technological information extracted from thesis, proceedings, journals, literatures, etc. The DataCite consortium metadata were analyzed and compared with the Dublin Core metadata, OECD metadata, and Directory Interchange Format metadata to develop a core meta-tag in observation research.
Disambiguation of Author Names Using Co-citation
Kang, In-Su ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 3, 2011, Pages 167~186
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.3.167
Co-citation means that two or more studies are cited together by a later study. This paper deals with the relationship between co-citation and author disambiguation. Author disambiguation is to cluster same-name author instances into real-world individuals. Co-citation may influence author disambiguation in terms that two or more related research works performed by the same person may be co-cited by some later studies. This article describes automated steps to gather co-citation information from Google scholar, and proposes a new clustering algorithm to effectively integrate co-citation information with other author disambiguation features. Experiments showed that co-citation helps to improve the performance of author disambiguation.
Towards an Understanding of User Satisfaction and Continuance Intention in Human-Mediated Services: An Investigation of Academic Libraries
Lee, Bo-Ram ; Park, Ji-Hong ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 42, issue 3, 2011, Pages 187~210
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2011.42.3.187
This study aims at examining how academic library staffs' service quality affects the user satisfaction and continuance intention, and also seeking practical solutions for improving the satisfaction and continuance intention in academic libraries. Despite the value and importance of human-mediated library services which enable various library services to be more valuable, relatively few prior studies focuses on this topic. This study develops a conceptual framework based on the concepts of service quality, satisfaction, and continuance intention. This framework provides a useful guideline for data collection and data analyses. Values of this study include ensuring the continuance intention by suggesting strategies that may increase users' positive attitude toward human-mediated services in academic libraries, and methodologically, using both quantitative and qualitative methods.
