    Investigating the Promotion Methods of Korean Financial Firms' Knowledge Management in the e-Learning Environment Focusing on the Implementation of TopicMap-Based Repository Model

    Hyun Hee Kim | 2006, 40(2) | pp.103~123 | number of Cited : 1
    Abstract PDF
    Assuming that the knowledge creation and retrieval functions could be the most important factors for a successful knowledge management(KM) especially during the promotion stage of KM, this study suggests an e-learning application as one of best methods for producing knowledge and also the integrated knowledge repository model in which learning, knowledge, and information objects can be semantically associated through topic map-based knowledge map. The traditional KM system provides a simple directory-based knowledge map, which can not provide the semantic links between topics or objects. The proposed model can be utilized as a solution to solve the above-mentioned disadvantages of the traditional models. In order to collect the basic data for the proposed model, first, case studies utilizing interviews and surveys were conducted targeting at three Korean insurance companies' knowledge managers(or e-learning managers) and librarians. Second, the related studies and other topic map-based pilot systems were investigated.

    Abstract PDF
    Yeogkwa Bo is a biographical source that was re-edited based on the primary sources such as Yeogkwa Bangmok which is the list of the successful applicants in Yeogkwa. 7 Kinds of the existing Yeogkwa Bo was studied and analyzed in bibliographical way. This study proves that the period of available record(of successful applicants' names) ranges from 1807 to 1891, although it has been mentioned before that the period of record covers as far as 1882. As a result of comparison of mentioned family names, family origins, total number of the successful applicants in Yeogkwa, and content of record, Yeog Bo of Dangrih University's shows the most extensive and substantial work, and Yeogkwa Bo of Jangseo Kag's is quite superior to other archives present at home. But both of them show problems such as errors or omission of some records, confusion in spelling and so on. Therefore, the above study implies that there should be process of checking through study of Yeogkwa Bangmok when making reference to Yeogkwa Bo which provides biographical information on family trees and origins as well as information on the individual successful applicants in Yeogkwa.

    A Study on the Network Generation Methods for Examining the Intellectual Structure of Knowledge Domains

    Jae Yun Lee | 2006, 40(2) | pp.333~355 | number of Cited : 52
    Abstract PDF
    Network generation methods to visualize bibliometric data for examining the intellectual structure of knowledge domains are investigated in some detail. Among the four methods investigated in this study, pathfinder network algorithm is the most effective method in representing local details as well as global intellectual structure. The nearest neighbor graph, although never used in bibliometic analysis, also has some advantages such as its simplicity and clustering ability. The effect of input data preparation process on resulting intellectual structures are examined, and concluded that unlike MDS map with clusters, the network structure could be changed significantly by the differences in data matrix preparation process. The network generation methods investigated in this paper could be alternatives to conventional multivariate analysis methods and could facilitate our research on examining intellectual structure of knowledge domains.

    Abstract PDF
    This paper analyzes the current status of open access policies, publishing, and archiving in the field of medicine. Journals indexed in SCI are published by open access publishers such as BMC Ltd. and PLoS and then the research articles in those journals are archived in PMC and BMC. Also, funding institutions participate in developing open access as a new scholarly communication model and governments or independent funding institutions outside the country make policies for open access. But scholary communities in Korea do not develop their services in the level of a new scholarly communication model even though they open their journal articles on the homepages. This paper suggests several plans for the open access scholarly communication in the field of medicine in Korea.
