The Analysis of Research Trends in Biometrics in South Korea

Jinhyo Jung, Hyunjung Yang, and Chang-Moo Lee
Abstract—Biometrics has been under the spotlight in academia for long. A great number of academic papers have been published over the past few decades. However, most of them have focused too much on technical issues. There has been only limited research conducted from the comprehensive and overall viewpoint. It is overriding now to categorize and survey the hitherto published papers regarding biometrics to extend the scope of research and facilitate efficient studies. This article aims to shed light on the research streams on biometrics with emphasis on five categories: fingerprint recognition, iris recognition, face recognition, speaker―or speech―recognition, and vein recognition. The author collected 956 papers spanning from 1980 to 2015 through RISS―the largest academic database in Korea, which has a pool of more than four million articles. Based on social network analysis as a main methodology, this survey used analytic and statistical tools―Krwords, Ktitle, R, and Netminer―to analyze and categorize research trends on the selected five categories. This article will contribute to understanding the status quo of biometrics objectively and helping researchers design their own studies about biometrics.

Index Terms—Big data, biometrics, South Korea, social network analysis, research trends.
