Abstract

There has been growing interest in the methods for measuring the credits of individual authors in multi-authored research papers in response to the increase of research collaboration. Having a good understanding for academic norms of individual discipline is essential to measure author credit effectively. However, many Korean universities do not consider different norms for determining the order of authors across disciplines. Rather, they tend to use a standardized method to assess the credits of authors in multi-authored papers. Therefore, this study presented some problems of applying a standardized method to measure author credits in multi-authored papers in economics. The findings of this study confirmed the frequent use of alphabetical author order in economics papers; however, many university guidelines for research evaluation do not take account the alphabetical authorship in measuring the credits of authors. The authors suggest the needs for (1) establishment of a clear definition for primary authors, (2) flexibility in assessment methods for author credit, and (3) empirical research on author credit.

Abstract

We investigated the user behavior of the theme display provided by the public libraries as an active information service. Specifically, we wanted to study the library patrons’ library use behavior and perception. There were in-depth interviews with seven librarians and eight patrons to develop a set of research questions and the questionnaire. We conducted the survey with 232 patrons then the statistical analysis. The analysis result revealed that the theme display helped the patrons’ wider use of the library resources and also positively affected patrons’ perception on the librarians as well as the evaluation of the library services. Based on the findings, we recommended the active incorporation of the theme display within the limitation of the libraries’ facility and patrons’ interests.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop an adoptive model of institutional repositories (IRs) by identifying the key factors affecting adoptive intention of IRs and explaining the relations among these factors. Through a survey of 270 researchers and 12 in-depth interviews in the field of physics, mathematics, and life science in Korea, performance expectancy, perceived risks, socio-organizational influence, and individual characteristics were found to have substantial influences on the adoptive intention of IRs. Among the key factors, individual characteristics showed the greatest effect on the adoptive intention of IRs, followed by performance expectancy and other socio-organizational influences except for the perceived risks. Strategies to enhance the adoptive intention of IRs based on analyses of the results were suggested, in terms of the reformation of research assessment system at the national level, strengthening of role of the operational institution, and the need for voluntary scientists-participating service.

Abstract

This study examined two characteristics of library and information science (LIS) journals in Korea through analysis of journal coupling with common authors. This study also illustrated the trend of Korean LIS research in the recent decade. The notable change is that record management and archival studies settle in LIS domain as a major research area. We introduced two indicators, Publishing Preference Index (PPI) and Researcher Attraction Index (RAI), based on the degree of common authors among journals. Both indicators revealed notable changes in author coupling, including reversal of PPIs in some journals, which can be interpreted as proof of changes in their author groups. The RAI analysis, which measured the degree of journals’ attractiveness to Korean LIS researchers and author sharing between two journals, illustrated the journals’ states in a domain; this result can help find both an isolated journal and strongly bonded journals in the specific domain. Journal coupling with common authors introduced in this study proved to be an effective investigative method for illustrating journals’ states in a specified domain as well as a multidisciplinary area.

This study aims to develop the lesson plan of public library user education for children for the activation of user education. For the development of lesson plan, elementary school 3rd and 4th graders were selected as user education subjects through the literature survey, and orientation were derived as contents of user education. This study developed a lesson plan that applies Jonassen’s constructivist learning environments to specifically design the librarian’s role as teacher in user education with voluntary and subjective education participation of the children. Lesson plan was evaluated in terms of usefulness and appropriateness.

Abstract

Many for-profit and not-for-profit organizations’ service provider can affect customers’ perceptions of the organization based on the relationship between the customers and the organizations. This study aims to identify the relational benefits in libraries, and analyze the relationship between relational benefits and library trust and perception using a questionnaire. As a result, public library customers realize relational benefits with librarians. And these relational benefits affect library trust and perception. This study is meaningful in that it focuses on the relationships in libraries for the first time, which can contribute to the positive perceptions of customer-librarian relations.

Abstract

Disaster has a direct influence on the lives of the people, the body, and the property. For effective and rapid disaster responses, coordination process based on sharing and utilizing disaster information is the essential requirement Disaster and safety control agencies produce and manage heterogeneous information. They also develop and use word dictionaries individually. This is a major obstacle to retrieve and access disaster and safety information in terms of practitioners. To solve this problem, standardization of lexical resources related disaster and safety is essentially required. In this paper, we conducted current status analysis about lexical resources in disaster and safety domain. Consequently, we identified the characteristics according to lexical groups. And then we proposed the utilization plan of lexical resources for disaster and safety information management.

Abstract

This study analyzed changes to copyright policies in KCI journals comparatively using the previous 2 research results published in 2008 and 2016 and then gave insight into the meaning of the changes. The results of the study are as follows: Journals making the subject of copyright public had increased from 34% in 2008 to 67% in 2016. Journals transferring copyright from authors remained almost the same, with only a slight increase from 90% to 91% in the same period. Journals using the term ‘publication rights’ instead of ‘copyright’ had decreased; on the other hand, journals using the term ‘reproduction right’ and ‘right of transmission’ had increased. Use of copyright transfer agreement had increased from 25% to 50%; on the other hand, self archiving policy remained almost the same, decreasing slightly from 13% to 12%. This study argues that these changes mean the establishment of copyright industrialization for Korean journals and that the publishing bodies appear to be the most powerful main agent among stakeholders participating in scholarly publishing in this process.

Abstract

The purpose of this research is to develop evaluation indicators for evaluating the social value of libraries and, for this, first of all, preliminary evaluation indicators were derived by analyzing comprehensively about 60 domestic and overseas papers which researched on the value of libraries. On the basis of the derived preliminary evaluation indicators, 11 experts were selected and the final evaluation indicators were developed by conducting Delphi survey three times. The final evaluation indicators are composed of five evaluation areas, which are the divided areas of the social value of libraries, such as the development of local communities, the linkage of local communities, the improvement of local residents’ life quality, the equalization of local residents, and the information services necessary for local communities, 13 evaluation items, and 64 evaluation indicators. In the future, it seems that researches to measure the social value of libraries based on this will have to be conducted.
