Abstract
There is a burgeoning interest among social scientists in the development of e-science technologies and research practices around world. However, the international social science research literature has not systematically examined e-science approaches in Asia in general and Korea in particular. This article presents empirical findings from a webometrics analysis of the semantic variation, disciplinary scope, and institutional structure of e-science programs in South Korea. The findings suggest that some e-science terms, including cyberinfrastructure, have prominent Korean web presences. At the same time, Korean government-sponsored national e-science centers and their affiliates do not have a strong web presence and do not actively participate in the hyperlink network that connects e-science-related institutional websites. Instead, they have a closed network among themselves. This result stems from the institutional dynamics within Korea's public and private e-science research communities.
