In 1997, 240 articles published in the Journal of Korean Neurosurgical Society. The average number of references and frequency of citation were evaluated.

There were some other faults, such as an incorrect author's name, omitting an article in the references, wrong order, or different description of the pages. The average number of references were 27.1 in total. The average number of Korean references were 1.3, and that of the Journal of Korean Neurosurgical Society was 0.93.
