This article reports findings from a study of the relationship between citation measures (impact factor and its quartile)
among international composition of editorial board and foreign authorship in 17 Korean SCI journals for the three 5-year periods,
1995, 2000, and 2005. With few exceptions, the relationship between international editorial board composition and foreign
authorship and citation measures was non-existent, at p > 0.05. However, the international members on editorial boards and foreign authorship of papers in Korean journals have increased
greatly over the three 5-year periods, and there has been to a certain degree growth in the visibility and performance of
Korean SCI journals in terms of impact factors, but not their quartiles.
