Following its leader were Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Yonsei University, Sungkyunkwan University and Korea University.
The center made the analysis based on 2015 Journal Citation Reports (JCR) data screened and registered by the U.S. information provider Thomson Scientific, by selecting journals with the impact factor of 10 or more or the five-year impact factor of 10 or more.
