ABSTRACT

Since the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, related studies have been conducted in various fields including industrial fields. In this study, to analyze domestic research trends on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a keyword analysis and topic modeling analysis based on the LDA algorithm were conducted on 2,115 papers included in the KCI from January 2016 to August 2023. As a result of this study, first, the journals in which more than 30 academic papers related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution were published were digital convergence research, humanities society 21, e-business research, and learner-centered subject education research. Second, as a result of the topic modeling analysis, seven topics were selected: “human and artificial intelligence,” “data and personal information management,” “curriculum change and innovation,” “corporate change and innovation,” “education change and jobs,” “culture and arts and content,” and “information and corporate policies and responses.” Third, common research topics related to the Fourth Industrial Revolution are “change in the curriculum,” “human and artificial intelligence,” and “culture arts and content,” and common keywords include “company,” “information,” “protection,” “smart,” and “system.” Fourth, in the first half of the research period (2016-2019), topics in the field of education appeared at the top, but in the second half (2020-2023), topics related to corporate, smart, digital, and service innovation appeared at the top. Fifth, research topics tended to become more specific or subdivided in the second half of the study. This trend is interpreted as a result of socioeconomic changes that occur as core technologies in the fourth industrial revolution are applied and utilized in various industrial fields after the corona pandemic. The results of this study are expected to provide useful information for identifying research trends in the field of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, establishing strategies, and subsequent research.
