Abstract

This study reports the preliminary results of a cross-cultural comparison of Medical Science in the Korean Decimal Classification (KDC) and in the Dewy Decimal Classification (DDC). Despite having similar purposes, to serve the public and emphasize the significance of standardization in medical science, a comparison of the two classification systems shows the influences of social and cultural inferences of classification systems in medicine.
