Abstract:With the growing international population of scholars in Knowledge Organization (KO), international academic journals are a source of academic communication among researchers. Even with the inclusion of these journals in international databases, there are still limitations due to language, culture, and interpretation. The purpose of this study is to develop a comprehensive list of topics that comprise KO in these respective countries. This study is a content analysis of two KO journals from each country: Brazil, South Korea, Spain, and the United States. The journals are limited to the last five years of each journal, 2008 to 2012. Through the content analysis, this study contributes to increase communication among academics in KO.
