During the last decade, we have witnessed a sustained growth of South Korea’s research output in terms of the world share
of publications in the Science Citation Index database. However, Korea’s citation performance is not yet as competitive as
publication performance. In this study, the authors examine the intellectual structure of Korean S&T field based on social
network analysis of journal-journal citation data using the ten Korean SCI journals as seed journals. The results reveal that
Korean SCI journals function more like publication places, neither research channels nor information sources among national
scientists. Thus, these journals may provide Korean scholars with access to international scientific communities by facilitating
the respective entry barriers. However, there are no citation relations based on their Korean background. Furthermore, we
intend to draw some policy implications which may be helpful to increase Korea’s research potential.
between research and the knowledge-transfer activities of academics in ‘catch-up’ countries is far less well explored than the relationship between public science and industrial innovation.
South Korea (hereafter Korea) is well known as one of the

In this paper, we show a “Strategic Diagram” of the robot technology by applying the co-word analysis to the metadata of Korean
related national R&D projects in 2001. The strategic diagram shows the evolutionary trends of the specific R&D domain and
relational patterns between subdomains. We may use this strategic diagram to support both the strategic planning and the R&D
This study investigates the scientific output and publication patterns of Korean biotechnology before and after the start
of the Korean Biotechnology Stimulation Plans (1994–2007), and then compares the results with publication data from the same
time periods for Japan, the People’s Republic of China, Taiwan and Singapore. For this study, 14,704 publications, published
by at least one researcher from one of the five Asian nations (indexed by SCI Expanded during the years 1990–1993 and the
years 2000–2003), were considered. A marked increase of Korean research output in biotechnology was largely influenced by
an increasing tendency for researchers to enter the field of biotechnology and by increased expenditures for R&D activity
through the Korean Biotechnology Stimulation Plans. In addition, the SCI Expanded coverage of national journals affected the
scientific output and publication patterns of Japanese and Korean researchers. Looking at the Korean publications by collaboration
type, international collaboration leads to more publications in mainstream journals of high impact factors than local and
domestic collaborations for the two periods. However, although the Korean Biotechnology Stimulation Plans were followed by
a remarkable increase in South Korea’s research output, this increase has not been accompanied by growth in the quality of
those publications in terms of impact factors of journals for Korean publications.
This paper is an investigation of the knowledge sources of Korean innovation studies using citation analysis, based on a Korean
database during 1993–2004. About two thirds of knowledge has come from foreign sources and 94% of them are from English materials.
Research Policy is the most frequently cited journal followed by Harvard Business Review, R&D Management and American Economic Review. An analysis of who cites the most highly cited journal is also included. Neo-Schumpeterians in Korea cite more papers from
Research Policy than general researchers, and there is no difference between groups in the year of citation.
