Objectives: With open public data trend, Korean NTIS is considering national R&D information system including result materials. This research designs information integration software for linking the information with result materials. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To provide information integration in Korean NTIS including result materials along with 422 metadata items, this study designs and pilot tests a software prototype. The software prototype is designed in Agent Mode, which is based on previously existing standard platform.120,000 cases of data and 2.5GB of result materials were used to test the software prototype. Findings: According to the test result, the entire result materials were transferred in 250 seconds, while the renewal ones were sent in 50 seconds. It implies that the result materials can be transferred time-efficiently through the software. Preceding researchers studied on developing information integration system based on standard platform; however, there was lack of studies on developing the system including result materials. This study suggests a way to provide information service by linking national R&D information with result materials included as well as 422 metadata items. Improvements/Applications: To apply the proposed target model to the existing NTIS environment, further studies need to verify the stability or system quality even when transferring large amount of result materials.
