Topic Modeling based Interdisciplinarity Measurement in the Informatics Related Journals
Jin, Seol A ; Song, Min ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 7~32
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.007
This study has measured interdisciplinarity using a topic modeling, which automatically extracts sub-topics based on term information appeared in documents group unlike the traditional top-down approach employing the references and classification system as a basis. We used titles and abstracts of the articles published in top 20 journals for the past five years by the 5-year impact factor under the category of 'Information & Library Science' in JCR 2013. We applied 'Discipline Diversity' and 'Network Coherence' as factors in measuring interdisciplinarity; 'Shannon Entropy Index' and 'Stirling Diversity Index' were used as indices to gauge diversity of fields while topic network's average path length was employed as an index representing network cohesion. After classifying the types of interdisciplinarity with the diversity and cohesion indices produced, we compared the topic networks of journals that represent each type. As a result, we found that the text-based diversity index showed different ranking when compared to the reference-based diversity index. This signifies that those two indices can be utilized complimentarily. It was also confirmed that the characteristics and interconnectedness of the sub-topics dealt with in each journal can be intuitively understood through the topic networks classified by considering both the diversity and cohesion. In conclusion, the topic modeling-based measurement of interdisciplinarity that this study proposed was confirmed to be applicable serving multiple roles in showing the interdisciplinarity of the journals.

Lee, Mihwa ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 33~52
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.033
This study was to find the display considerations of RDA resource type - content type, media type, and carrier type. The Literature review, the case study, and the survey were used as the research method. 5 display strategies were suggested in this study. First, content and carrier types were better displayed than all 3 types of RDA resources. Second, two kinds of algorithm should be considered for RDA resource icon display. One was the combination of the terms of carrier types plus content types icon. The other was the combination of carrier types icon and content types icon in which the terms reflecting types must be included. Third, the subfield of 33x must be used for the paired display of content type and carrier type of multi-types resources. Fourth, in brief display, resource type icon was better positioned on the left and upper side and in detailed display, resource types were better located in description area. Fifth, 'format' was used as display indication phrase. This study would contribute to the design for the resource display by suggesting the practical display considerations of RDA resource type.

The summary of the study is as follows: First, there are distinct difference between two journals about researcher's backgrounds. Second, joint-research is gradually increasing and the majority of co-authors are belong to the university. Third, two journals show different research trend. Finally, each institution have different interest about specific subjects.
A Study on Influence of Spatial Types Based on Public Library Spatial Characteristics
Yook, Jihye ; Kim, Giyeong ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 111~137
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.111
The roles of public libraries have been diverse not only provision of information but also provision of cultural programs. According to this trend, the spatial composition of public libraries have been also changed to reflect the diverse roles. This study is conducted to explore the spatial characteristics in public libraries with two objectives: 1) to suggest spatial types in public libraries based on their physical characteristics, and 2) to explore the relationships between the spatial types and users' perception. To accomplish these objectives, we adopted observation and questionnaire survey as research methods. Consequently, three spatial types of public libraries are identified based on an investigation of several public libraries: divided, partially integrated, and integrated. Then, several statistical analyses, including one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), are conducted with the questionnaire survey data. The results from the statical analyses show that there are significant differences in users' perceptions and behaviors between the spatial types. That is, the spatial type influences user's perceptions. This study is meaningful in terms of its first attempt to explore the relationships between spatial factors in libraries and users' perceptions. Based on this, it is suggested that libraries should consider their spatial structures for developing user's positive perception on the libraries.

This study suggested improvements after analyzing the effectiveness of "A" university library. So, this study analyzed the effectiveness of E-group "A" university, and measured the effectiveness, classifying with three conditions about input & output and factors and conditions about regional categories. As a result, it is necessary to operate E-group 38 university libraries and "A" University library by increasing input factors to increase outputs. The improvements are as followings. First, it is necessary to stir up member's recognition on libraries. To this, there is a legal system for university library. Second, it is necessary to include library use education in curriculum. Third, it is necessary to prepare complex space so that the members can borrow books and use it for cultural space and rest space.

Kim, Na Won ; Lee, Jee Yeon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 161~180
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.161
Physicians have information needs related to academic research and clinical practice but encounter difficulties seeking appropriate medical resources and information. The goal of this study is to develop a search system to support Korean physicians' information needs. To access sources to meet the identified need, in-depth interviews were conducted, and MediSearching, a new search system, was developed accordingly. To verify its usefulness and to obtain users' suggestions, interviews were conducted and feedback was solicited via collected test searches. The initial set of interviews indicated that physicians' information needs and search behaviors differed by type of hospital and clinical department. Physicians in university hospitals with a greater need for research materials searched for academic articles, whereas physicians in specialty hospitals or primary care clinics with a stronger need for materials related to clinical practice asked their colleagues for information. Consequently, MediSearching was designed to satisfy both groups' needs, and the test search provided useful search results compared with existing services. Korean physicians have previously had to repeat their search process on separate sites that provide different services according to type of information and search method. MediSearching may reduce this inconvenience and add documents in various formats and languages.

DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.181
The objective of this study is to evaluate the organization system and the labeling system of information architecture of a website for the elderly. To achieve this aims, we selected a representative website, i.e., Naver, and the participants were conducted given three types of search tasks using their own information literacy skills and they were answered to the questionnaire and an additional interview, if necessary. A total of 74 valid data were collected through the experiment, and we analyzed the data using SPSS Ver. 20. It revealed that Naver received a positive evaluation in the organization system aspect, particularly its systematic subject categorization and chronological browsing mechanisms. Old adults were preferred the icon-based labeling than the text-based labeling system, and showed a significant difference among their academic backgrounds.

Kim, Jeong-A ; Chang, Hye-Rhan ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 197~223
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.197
The purpose of this study is to understand information behavior of older adults with diabetes. After reviewing previous research, related factors are identified and a questionnaire was devised. The structured interview was administered to the aged 60 and over in the B hospital (N=543). Data about awareness of the disease, health literacy, information environment, information need, information seeking, information use, information service, and personal background are collected and analyzed descriptively. Relationship between variables are examined and hypotheses are tested to find factors affecting information behavior. The level of the awareness of the disease and health literacy appeared to be low. It is proved that awareness of the disease is a factor affecting information need and information use. Health literacy affects information use. There is a statistical significant difference between information need and information use by disease education and duration. There is also a statistical significant difference between information use among groups divided by information environment, sex, age, and education. Based on the results, campaign to raise disease awareness, marketing promotion about information support facilities, customized information service for older adults are suggested.
Analysis of Library Space Use Patterns to Determine its Optimum Utilization
Park, Sung-Jae ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 225~245
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.225
The purpose of this study is to enhance the efficiency of library space usage through analyzing users' behavior in an academic library. Diary methodology was applied for collecting users' activities in the library. 108 students participated in this study, but 84 students submitted their diaries. Among them, 14 participants were interviewed to identify barriers and their needs in using the library. The findings suggest rearranging IT devices to increase use rate of those devices, making plans for reusing the space where it is rarely used, and improving the accessibility of information through browsing in the bookstack area. Additionally, time analysis of users' activities was used to analyze students' behavior in the library.

Although it has been a long subject of study why researchers prefer some cited documents to others, the existing relative researches have had a variety of perspectives on the nature and complexity of the citation behavior and not provided a complete answer to this question. In particular, Korea researchers mainly used statistical analysis of bibliographic information, which has limitations in revealing dynamic and complex cognitive aspects of the citation process. In this study, I investigate the citer perception of citing motives and bibliographic factors through survey and compared the responses according to the researchers' characteristics. After extracting the 22 motivations and 21 factors through the literature analysis and configuring a 5-point Likert scale questions, I conducted a survey in the wat of an e-mail attachment. From the SPSS 22.0, the frequency analysis, t-test, and one-way ANOVA were performed on the 354 valid samples. As a result, it is found that supporting is considered the most important citing motive and social connection, self-citation have little influence. In the case of bibliographic factors, the journal's reputation was recognized the most influential factor and the number of pages and authors was the least. Significant differences in fields of study and research careers were showed in some parts. These results can substantiate earlier studies, determine whether the factors assumed influential in selecting references were intended, and suggest the search point to the specialty library or academic database.

Seo, Eun-Gyoung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 269~292
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.269
Digital preservation becomes, nowadays, one of the important business process in the academic libraries. This study is to investigate the librarians' perception on digital preservation requirements and to analyze the business practices of the digital preservation and digital preservation level in the 102 academic libraries. In results, it is found that the digital preservation specialists in academic libraries have almost same perception on basic policies and direction. Also, the study finds that the important function of digital preservation is to secure authenticity and integrity; policy and expertise are the most important key components for digital preservation; the most frequently reported barriers to preservation are the lack of willingness and funding problems; most librarians want to learn and train how to establish preservation planning and policy. In general, most librarian think that the level of digital preservation in the academic libraries is insufficiency. Therefore the academic libraries should establish the relevant digital preservation policy and business workflows and to develop capacity of digital preservation.

Park, Zi-young ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 293~316
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.293
This study aims to improve bibliographic data of public libraries by linking service data, which are produced out of library service programs. Service data collected from the seven award-winning public libraries were selected and analyzed. A Bibliographic Framework is used for linking bibliographic data and service data. Interfaces are also suggested for the two-way data linking. The results can be used to obtain 1) selective and value-added bibliographic data, 2) bibliographic data updated continuously throughout the lifecycle, 3) structured service data for preservation and sharing, and 4) bibliographic data linked to the additional external linked data.
A Study on Scientific Article Recommendation System with User Profile Applying TPIPF
Zhang, Lingling ; Chang, Woo Kwon ;
Journal of the Korean Society for information Management, volume 33, issue 1, 2016, Pages 317~336
DOI : 10.3743/KOSIM.2016.33.1.317
Nowadays users spend more time and effort to find what they want because of information overload. To solve the problem, scientific article recommendation system analyse users' needs and recommend them proper articles. However, most of the scientific article recommendation systems neglected the core part, user profile. Therefore, in this paper, instead of mean which applied in user profile in previous studies, New TPIPF (Topic Proportion-Inverse Paper Frequency) was applied to scientific article recommendation system. Moreover, the accuracy of two scientific article recommendation systems with above different methods was compared with experiments of public dataset from online reference manager, CiteULike. As a result, the proposed scientific article recommendation system with TPIPF was proven to be better.
