Objective: To analyze publication rate, time to publication and the characteristics of the abstracts presented at the annual Korean Academy of Rehabilitation Medicine (KARM) meetings.

Methods: A total of 1,027 abstracts presented at the 2008 and 2009 annual KARM meetings were enrolled in the database and searched for their subsequent citation in PubMed, KoreaMed, and Google Scholar.

Results: The data analysis revealed that 317 (30.87%) abstracts, were published as full-length journal articles and publication rates by subject were not significantly different. The mean time to publication was 17.17±10.48 months, and the journals written in English (20.39±10.20) required a longer duration than those written in Korean (11.94±8.44) with statistical significance (p<0.001). There was no statistical difference (p=0.284) in the duration between domestic (17.61±10.37) and foreign (16.48±10.51) of the 220 domestic journal articles, 190 (86.76%) were published in the Annals of Rehabilitation Medicine and the 97 articles published in foreign journals were scattered over 60 different journals.

Conclusion: The publication rate of abstracts presented at the 2008 and 2009 annual KARM meetings was 30.87% and the mean time to publication was 17.17±10.48 months.

Figure 1: The titles of journals and the number of articles registered therein are shown. Most articles published in domestic journals were concentrated in the Annals of Rehabilitation Medicine (Ann Rehabil Med), whereas articles published in foreign journals were scattered over various journals.

Mentions: The mean time to publication was 17.17±10.48 months for the 317 published journal articles, in which 239 articles (75.39%) were published within two years from presentation at the annual KARM meetings, and the longest time to publication found to be was 46 months. In addition, 220 articles (69.40%) were published in domestic journals and 190 (86.76%) of them were published in the Ann Rehabil Med (Fig. 1). A total of 97 articles (30.60%) were published in foreign journals and scattered over 60 different journals. The mean time to publication in domestic journals (17.61±10.37 months) was modestly longer than that of foreign journals (16.48±10.51 months) with no significant difference (p=0.28) (Fig. 2). However, the time to publication of articles written in English (20.39±10.20 months) was significantly (p<0.001) longer than the articles written in Korean (11.94±8.44 months) with statistical (Fig. 3).
