^{} Summary results of the analysis of the references included in the papers written by at least one Korean author working in a Korean institution, which were published in JACS and in BKCS in 2015. In the case of BKCS, only regular articles published in February, April, June, August and October were analyzed.

^{} The three variables used are the percentage of all references written by at least one Korean author in a Korean institution in each individual paper, the percentage of self-citations in each individual paper and the percentage of the references written by at least one Korean author in a Korean institution, which are not self-citations, in each individual paper. The results indicate that there are statistically significant differences between the two groups.

JACS,
The three variables used are the percentage of all references written by at least one Korean author in a Korean institution in each individual paper, the percentage of self-citations in each individual paper and the percentage of the references written by at least one Korean author in a Korean institution, which are not self-citations, in each individual paper. The results indicate that there are statistically significant differences between the two groups.
