A Study on the Research Support Service of College Libraries
Nam, Young-Joon ; Kim, Hee-Sun ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 43, issue 3, 2012, Pages 1~21
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2012.43.3.001
This research defines research support service, and compares the support service provided by college libraries in Korea and overseas. The findings showed that the frequency of college library service in Korean schools were low. Korean college libraries' services were mostly limited to the services of a normal library such as bibliographic education, full text service, and interlibrary loan service. To put it differently, Korean college libraries lacked information services on research ethics. Research spot services per research stage were mostly restricted to the data collection stage, and deficient elsewhere. On the other hand, college libraries in the U.S. were providing a platform for scholarly communication between researcher and scholars via websites.

Citation analysis studies have reported many problems associated with data coverage problems common to popular citation databases such as Web of Science(WoS). In addition, the studies that analyzed citation patterns of Korean publications found that up to 75% of references in Korean publications were to international publications. As a first step in investigating the international coverage of WoS database, the study investigated the effect of adding citation data from Korea Science Citation Database(KSCD) to the impact factors and journal rankings of the journals listed in Journal Citation Reports. Specifically, the study mined the reference data from top 5 Korean Library and Information Science(KLIS) journals to recompute the impact factors reported in JCR 2009. Since the resulting journal rankings did not significantly differ from JCR 2009 rankings except for minor ranking changes, we analyzed additional citation data from 45 computer science and electrical engineering journals. Although the overall ranking difference was not statistically significant, one of the ranking partitions showed significant change. Such study findings despite its limited data sample suggest the potential impact of non-Western citation databases such as KSCD to bibliometric indicators provided by popular citation databases like WoS.
A Study on Models of Economic Performance Analysis for Science and Technology Information Management Distribution Project
Park, Sung-Uk ; Lee, Pill-Woo ; Hahn, Sun-Hwa ; Lee, Sang-Hwan ; Hwang, Seog-Won ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 43, issue 3, 2012, Pages 43~59

We established economic models for economic performance analysis in order to respond to changes in a rapidly changing environment. We tried to maximize business efficiency and performance of science and technology information management distribution project. The science and technology information management distribution project is significantly different from general R&D project. In this paper, it is meaningful to develop economic models to analyze economic outcomes for science and technology information management distribution project. We anticipate that these models will contribute greatly to economic performance analysis for science and technology information management distribution project.
The Effect of the Punishment for Internet Piracy on Attitude and Intention: Focusing on the Moderating Effect of Piracy Education
Park, Joo-Yeon ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 43, issue 3, 2012, Pages 61~78

Internet is widely spreading in everyday life and it makes easy to find and share information on the Internet. Many of Internet users are copying and distributing copyrighted materials freely on the Internet without recognizing that it is unethical and illegal behavior. The rate of Internet piracy is constantly increasing even though the regulation and punishment for piracy behavior are to be strict. However, there is a lack of study about the relationship between the punishment and education for intenet piracy on users` attitude and intention toward piracy on the Internet. The purpose of this study is therefore to find out the effect of the level of punishment for internet piracy on users` attitude and intention. This study also examines the moderating effect of piracy education on the relationship between punishment and piracy intention. The study shows that the punishment is directly associated with the attitude but not associated with the piracy intention. The piracy education has a significant effect on the relationship between punishment and intention. The result of this study could bring up the issue of intellectual property protection on the Intenet and suggest an importance of piracy education to educators, managers and internet users.
A Study on the Design of Library Classification in the Tourism Field

Journal of Information Management, volume 43, issue 3, 2012, Pages 79~95
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2012.43.3.079
This study is designed for library classification of the tourism. Contents studies are summarized as follows. First, an analysis of the current status of classification and items by a key work `tourism` in KDC, NDC, DDC, UDC, and LCC which are main library classification tables today indicates that they are too limited to travelling and tourism, tourism policy, and tourist attractions etc. Second, we divided areas studies newly based on the theoretical books in order to extract the classification items of the tourism field, and comparatively analyzed main library classification systems today. We divided basic categories of the classification items into four including tourism general, tourists, tourism attraction, tourism media. Third, a new classification was designed for library classification of the tourism field. Basically, the tourism field was assigned to the main four items and the classification items which were weighted or scattered were adjusted.

Kim, Sun-Tae ; Lee, Tae-Young ; Kim, Yong ;
Journal of Information Management, volume 43, issue 3, 2012, Pages 97~115
DOI : 10.1633/JIM.2012.43.3.097
This paper derives determining factor for the management of oceanographic data in two ways. 1) The type of oceanographic observation and the raw data which were collected from marine physics, marine chemistry, marine biology, marine geology area were analyzed. 2) The services of the KODC(Korea Oceangraphic Data Center), NFRDI(National Fisheries Research & Development Institute), KHOA(Korea Hydrographic and Oceanographic Administration) were analyzed to derive metadata elements for retrieval. After analyze, the 42 deciding factor were derived in the 9 areas (general, Observer, satellites, observation instruments, observatories, space, information, projects, and observational data, data processing).
Exploration of Governance Improvement Measures through E-government of Korea

This study examines the status of Korean E-government implementation and explores the ways to contribute to governance improvement by means of the e-government. As far as the level of implementation of e-government, Korea is confirmed to have achieved upper level by global standards, but it is found that continuous efforts of improvement is still required in the area of integrative management, which is considered as a final phase of e-government development. In order to evaluate how much e-government of Korea has contributed to the improvement of governance, I tried to measure the usability of e-government from the perspective of providers and that of consumers, and also, a qualitative evaluation on the provision and usage of functions related to the governance was also adopted. It is concluded that, while Korean e-government has reached a remarkable stage in the quantitative perspectives, there are still a room for improvement from the qualitative perspective, such as its role as a means of governance improvement. Also, based on the above evaluations and consequent findings, I suggest guidelines for the improvement of governance through the development of e-government.
