Examining the Intellectual Structure of Records Management & Archival Science in Korea with Text Mining
Lee, Jae-Yun ; Moon, Ju-Young ; Kim, Hee-Jung ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 41, issue 1, 2007, Pages 345~372
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2007.41.1.345
In this study, the intellectual structure of Records Management & Archival Science in Korea was analyzed using document clustering, a widely used method of text mining, and document similarity network analysis. The data used in this study were 145 articles written on the subject of Records Management & Archival Science selected from five major representative journals in the field of Library & Information Science in Korea, published from 2001 to 2006. The results of cluster analysis show that the core subject areas are "electronic records management and digital Preservation," "records management policy and institution," "records description and catalogues." and "records management domain and education." The results of document analysis, which is more detailed than cluster analysis, show that "digital archiving," a specialized subject in digital preservation, plays a central role. The results of serial analysis, which proceeds according to a timeline, show the emergence of "archival services" as a new subject area.
Analysis and Proposals Concerning Big Deals of Scholarly Journals
Shin, Eun-Ja ;
Journal of the Korean Society for Library and Information Science, volume 41, issue 1, 2007, Pages 373~389
DOI : 10.4275/KSLIS.2007.41.1.373
The most remarkable business model to Have merged in electronic publishing is the so-called `Big Deal`. Major Publishers have begun offering libraries bundled packages that are across journals and across print and electronic versions. This paper examined consortium conditions of scholarly journals in the light of big deal. The result skewed that various pricing models have been appeared and freedoms to choose collections have been on the increase in comparison with the past. But many major Publishers have adopted a typical big deal contract condition that a library enters into a long-term arrangement to get access to large electronic journal collections at a dramatic discount interchange of a promise not to cut print subscriptions. The publishing and library communities need to find alternative pricing models that provide better deals for those disadvantaged by the prevalence of the big deal. Much in the world of scholarly publication is changing, combination of traditional publishing and open access publishing may well be gained public favor in the future.
