ABSTRACT

What is the starting point of discussions for the open access of Korean journals? This study analyzed whether the serials crisis in Western societies are in academic libraries in Korea. The rising of prices of Korean electronic journals in academic libraries and recognition of librarians for it were surveyed. This study found that the subscription fees for web DBs of Korean journals have been increased from 1.3 times to 34 times during the last 10 years. But librarians in the universities did not think that the subscription fees are very high. And the 35% of respondents thought that the subscription fees for the web DBs in academic libraries will be increased to bring to a crisis to libraries. This study suggested that the leading groups of discussions for open access in Korea will be interested in the aspects of public goods and social justice, another values of open access.
