by Cheng Cheng, Collection Development and Analysis Librarian
Syracuse University Libraries now provide access to the Korean Studies Information Service System (KISS), a multidisciplinary database focused on scholarly publications and articles in Korean. This unique resource offers Korean scholarly journal articles, university publications and research papers published by over 1,200 research institutions in South Korea. It provides access to more than 3,300 publications with more than 2.3 million articles. Among these publications, 1,255 of them are listed in KCI (Korea Citation Index) and more than 100 of them are listed in SCI/SCOPUS. Subject areas covered by KISS include but not limited to:
- Language and Literature
- Social Sciences
- Natural Sciences
- Medicine and Pharmacy
- Arts and Sports
For Students, faculty and researchers who are in the area of Korean and East Asian studies, KISS is an excellent, one-of-a-kind portal to study scholarly and research trends in South Korea. For other users who can read Korean, KISS will help them expand their journey to find helpful resources beyond traditional English scholarly resources. Like all other scholarly databases, in KISS you can search articles by authors, titles and keywords, or browse the database by subject areas, publishers and journals’ titles. It can generate data about research trends. Although you do not need to create an account to search and access content, you will have the option to create one for citations or to save your search, just like other English scholarly databases. It also provides visualized data reports for scholar publishing in Korean, just like Scopus and Web of Science.
