In this study, co-word analysis was conducted to investigate the intellectual structure of the domestic open access area. Through KCI and RISS, 124 research articles related to open access in Korea were selected for analysis, and a total of 1,157 keywords were extracted from the title and abstract. Network analysis was performed on the selected keywords. As a result, 3 domains and 20 clusters were extracted, and intellectual relations among keywords from open access area were visualized through PFnet. The centrality analysis of weighted networks was used to identify the core keywords in this area. Finally, 5 clusters from cluster analysis were displayed on a multidimensional scaling map, and the intellectual structure was proposed based on the correlation between keywords. The results of this study can visually identify and can be used as basic data for predicting the future direction of open access research in Korea.
