This paper is to analyze the current status and interdependence of knowledge regarding innovation related research in Korea, based on the four academic journals such as Journal of Korea Technology Innovation Society, Journal of Technology Innovation, The Korean Venture Management Review, and Research Policy. The major contributions of this research are as follows:First, we tried to see the general picture of the innovation research community by extending the boundary of analysis, not limiting to a specific journal. Second, instead of subjective and qualitative analysis relying on an expert review, we quantitatively analyzed various basic statistics on innovation area and confirmed that there exist differences for using key words across the journals. Third, we derived a set of influential papers in terms of the authoritative and hub indexes employing link analysis techniques. Finally we provided some recommendations for facilitating knowledge creation activities of academic journals in this area.
