ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to measure the extent of collaboration by comparing team size patterns of Korean LIS journals with international LIS journals. For the sample dataset, the top 30 ranked international journals in the field of LIS were selected using the Scimago Journal Rank (SJR), and 4 Korean LIS journals were selected for the years between 2010-2016. The size of the team who authored Korean journal articles were collected from the RISS database, while the size of team who authored international journal articles from the top LIS journals were collected using the Scopus database. The result of this study shows that the most common team size ranged from one member team to three member teams. Overall, the collaborative team size in international journals was higher than Korean journals. In particular, one member team was the most common team size in Korean journals, whereas two members team was most common in the international journals. At the subject level, the most common team size was one team member in the subject area of Library Related, while the most common team size was three team members in the subject area of Science/Engineering. The result of this study suggests that within LIS, the size of teams may vary considerably due to differences in subject areas.
