ABSTRACT

The volume of Korean research on regulatory policies has increased since 1990. In this period up until the present, there has been considerable theoretical development and changes in the nature of regulation research. The purpose of this study is to analyze tendencies and key features in regulation research, and to discuss future directions for regulation studies. A search for articles about regulation published between 1990 and 2012 was conducted in the five main academic journals in public policy and administration in Korea: Korean Public Administration Review, Korean Policy Studies Review, Korean Journal of Public Administration, Korean Society and Public Administration, and The Korea Public Administration Journal. The results of the analysis reveal that regulation research has become an important branch of public policy and administration. The majority of articles are written by single authors, rather than being the result of collaboration between several researchers. While research on social regulation has been conducted steadily, the number of studies on economic regulation has varied according to the time period. Finally, there is a need for more research on theoretical approaches to regulation.
