ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to provide basic materials for the establishment of academic identity of Fire Science Technology. It analyzed the trend of studies in Fire Science Technology from 1990s when studies on firefighting administration were activated and increased up to now. In other words, we analyzed the trend of studies on firefighting administration using language network methodology on master and Ph.D degree theses in firefighting administration area from 1990 to 2013. From the study, the followings were found; first, there was rapid increase in quantity of theses related to firefighting administration in 2000s comparing to 1990s. They increased dramatically after 2005 specifically. Second, early studies in firefighting administration mainly focused on institutional studies inducing problems and improvements and after 2000 they mostly analyzed behaviors of firefighting public servants. Third, to make year 2000 as a starting point, the mainstream of studies was shifted from institutional studies(studies on firefighting administration system) to behavioral studies(studies on firefighting public servants). In particular, disaster management, first aid and emergency medical services came to be established to some extent between 1995 and 1999, and studies on volunteer fire department and civil sector emerged in the period of 2000 to 2004. It means the studies on firefighting administration became more diversified and segmented comparing to old trend which focused on public sector only. Additionally, between 2010 and 2013 more diversified research themes appeared such as disaster safety awareness of people and perception on prevention, although there were more behavioral studies than institutional studies just like the previous period.
