Korea’s Goals“KISTEP is pushing ahead with Information Strategy Planning (ISP) under the supervision of the Office of Science and Technology Innovation, MOST (Ministry of Science and Technology) with a view to promoting the implementation of a comprehensive information system that will enable not only the industry, academics, researchers and government, but also the general public to easily utilize science and technology information regardless of time and place. Its fundamental purpose is to promote not only economic development, but also innovations in every sector of the society by enhancing R&D productivity and implementing a new innovation system through systematic creation, diffusion, utilization and sharing of innovation-related knowledge and information, thereby bringing about systematic changes to the whole country.”

korea s goals
Korea’s Goals
  • Comprehensive information system available any time, any place, for many audiences
  • Promote economic development and innovation by implementing a new innovation system
  • Bring about systematic change to the whole country

slide5
Comprehensive scientific and technological information system available any time, any place, for many audiences – Selected issues
  • What is meant by “comprehensive and integrated”?
  • National Authority: what policies, who sets?
  • Audiences: what are their information needs?
  • Technologies: primarily Web-based, other?
  • Content: what to include – government-only, proprietary information that must be licensed?
  • Content: directories, data and databases of many kinds, Web sites, other?
  • Content: what to do about non-Web content?
  • Content: what and how to integrate?
  • Languages: which languages, how to use?

slide6
Comprehensive scientific and technological information system available any time, any place, for many audiences – Selected issues
  • “On Web” services: search, browse, personalized tools, support for communities of practice, data and publication creation/ dissemination?
  • “Off Web” services: help, publications, training, other?
  • Funding: who pays?
  • Participation: who needs to be involved, in what roles?
  • Momentum: how to gain and keep commitment?
  • Evaluation: how to know if it meets the goals

slide7
What are major countries saying about integrated national science and technology information networks?
  • There are many discussions of national ICT networks, cyberinfrastructure, GRIDs, eScience, etc. (US, UK, Japan, Germany, Singapore, etc.)
  • Often there isn’t much discussion of science and technology-related information content along with the discussions of ICT and cyberinfrastructure
  • Information content is not a free good, will not appear magically free of charge as part of information systems and networks, must be funded and managed as appropriately as ICT/cyberinfrastructure
  • Appropriate information content + appropriate ICT/cyberinfrastructure = effective information system

conclusions and suggestions
Conclusions and Suggestions
  • Vascoda appears to be the only existing national service aiming to integrate all relevant content, including proprietary content
  • Science.gov offers unique integrated Web site and “Deep Web” search functionality
  • Other sites are currently primarily lists of links with some text, some contain only government-produced information
  • Korea appears to be among a small group of nations working on integrating scientific and technical information
  • Korea may wish to establish consultative and collaborative relationships with other countries with similar goals and/or interesting systems
