Three Databases for LIS Journals China Academic Journal (CAJ) ( 中國期刊全文 數據庫 ) -- There are 45 LIS journals with full- text; Wanfang Data ( 萬方資料 ) -- There are 36 LIS journals with full-text; and VIP ( 維普資訊網 ) -- There are 76 LIS journals, some journals without full-text.
Indexes of LIS in China 中文核心期刊要目總覽 (Chinese Core Journal List) by Beijing University Library; 中國人文社會科學核心期刊要覽 (Chinese Humanity and Social Science Core Journals) by Chinese Academy of Social Science; 中文社會科學引文索引 (CSSCI) by Nanjing University; and So far, Chinese LIS journals are not listed by SCI and SSCI.

Hot LIS Topics in China Assessment on library service quality
Publication Practices In general, no formal blind peer-review process for most Chinese LIS journals, but usually reviewed by Editor or Editorial Boards; Commonly, page charge for many journals from RMB ,000; Mixed mode for manuscript submission - electronic and hard copy submission; Transfer the copyright to the journal publisher when authors submit manuscript, unless the authors declare that they want to hold the copyright. Remuneration may be paid to authors. For example “ 本刊已入編《中國學術期刊》及《萬方數位化期刊 群》，其作者文章著作權使用費與本刊稿酬一次性給付。凡不同意入編 光碟的稿件，請作者在投稿時聲明 ” ( 圖書情報工作 tushu qingbao gongzuo )
Copyright Law in China (Article 32) 30 days after submission, authors may submit the same paper to other journal publishers if no response received from journal editors, unless the two parties have agreed otherwise; Except where an author has declared that reprinting or excerpting is not permitted, other journal publishers may, after the publication of the work by a journal, reprint the work or print an abstract of it or print it as reference material, but such other publishers shall pay remuneration to the author as prescribed in regulations. ( 中華人民共和國著作權法 : 第三十二條 著作權人向報社、期刊社投稿的，自稿 件發出之日起十五日內未收到報社通知決定刊登的，或者自稿件發出之日起三十日內 未收到期刊社通知決定刊登的，可以將同一作品向其他報社、期刊社投稿。雙方另有 約定的除外。 作品刊登後，除著作權人聲明不得轉載、摘編的外，其他報刊可以轉載或者作為 文摘、資料刊登，但應當按照規定向著作權人支付報酬。 ) China copyright law in 2001
Business Module Most journals belong to professional societies, governmental organizations, and scientific research institutes / universities; Most of the journals have a formal editorial board in charge of the manuscript submissions, journal publication and subscription promotions. The majority Editorial Boards consists of 3-8 full time paid staff; Most publication fees come from direct fund allocations from governments, publication subscriptions, page charges, advertisement fees, and donations from various organizations; Heavily rely on the income based operations through the publications of supplementary and special issues.
Funding Sources Data as in 2004 Liu, P.Y. and Zhao X. (2004), “On the management patterns of Chinese library and information science journals”, Library and Information Service, Vol.48, No.11, pp14-8. advertisement publication subscriptions government fundingsupplementary issues page charges
