PURPOSE: Although many useful articles appear in the journals published in Korea, they are not always cited by researchers mainly due to absence of efficient searching system. The authors made a program with 6 predefined filtering forms to detect published articles rapidly and accurately. MATERIALS: The program was coded using database management system CA-Clipper Version 5.2 (Computer Associates International, Inc.) through preliminary work for 1 year. We used 486 DX II (8 Mbyte RAM, VGA, 200 MByte Hard Disk), Ink-jet Printer (Hewlett Packard Company), and MS-DOS Version 5.0 (Microsoft Co.). We inputed total of 1986 articles published in the Journal of the Korean Radiological Society from 1981 to 1993. METHODS AND RESULTS: The searching time was 10 to 15 seconds for each use. We had very flexible user interfaces and simplified searching methods, but more complicated filterings could also be performed. CONCLUSION: Although the previous version have had some bugs, this upgrade version resolved the problems and fitted in searching articles. The program would be valuable for radiologist in searching articles published not only in the Journal of the Korean Radiological Society, but also in the Journal of the Korean Society of Medical Ultrasound and the Korean Journal of Nuclear Medicine.
