ABSTRACT

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.
