Using publications in 24 leading finance journals across 21 years (1990-2010), we investigate the financial research productivity among Korean academic institutions and scholars. Overall, 61 Korean universities contribute a total of 158.50 weighted articles and 382 appearances during the full sample period. The five most productive Korean universities are Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), Korea University, Seoul National University, Yonsei University (Seoul), and SungKyunKwan University. While the financial research productivity among Korean universities fluctuates yearly, there has been an increasing trend since 1990 and a significant escalation in the most recent five years. We also notice that the Korean authors who are successful in international finance journal publications have had prior international experience by means of affiliating with international institutions as a part of their study or academic career.
