2 Thanks Dr Hazel Woodward for her recommendation! Thanks UKSG for its invitation!

3 Where the authors come from Li RX from Chongqing Normal University Yan S from Beijing Forest University Yao Y from Northwest University Wan M from Center for Sci-tech Development of CMOE Qian JL from Airforce Engineering University of China They are all the members of SCUJNS except Wan

4 Purpose of this talk to let the international scholarly publishing community know more about us to let Chinese scholarly journals open up more, faster and better to the world.

5 Faster, Higher and Stronger One world, One dream

6 Main points Rapid increase in science and technology research in China An following upsurge in STM papers This will seriously Traditional model for academic publishing and communication Difficultes that Chinese university journals are confronted with New online repositories should be set up Some open access initiatives

7 The growth and development context 405,000 STM papers were published domestically in ,000 papers produced in China were included in SCI, EI and ISTP in STM journals registered in China By 1st May 2005

8 Research productivity in China universities (1) Universities playing a major role more and more in STM research in China 60% of national laboratories and key laboratories were set up in universities China ’ s Ministry of Education (CMOE) has invested in 160 key laboratories in universities Graduate students was 978,600 in 2005; of these, 191,300 were Ph.D. candidates

9 Research productivity in China universities (2) Of the STM papers published in China domestically 60.1% were produced in universities Of the papers from China included in SCI, EI and ISTP 83.5% were produced by university authors

10 Journals published by Chinese universities Number of STM journals published by universities had risen to about 1495 titles by 2005.This was almost one third of the total 5387 in China STM journals are divided into several categories

11 Percentages of titles in different categories of Chinese university STM journals in 2005 CategoryNumber of STM journals published by universities Percentage Technological % Academic % Popular science271.9% General and policy1288.8% Indexing/abstracting130.9% Not clear402.7% The total %

12 Chinese university journals(1) 668 Chinese university journals in natural science within 1129 academic titles is the most typical category They have a common feature of their names-Journal of [university ’ s name]

13 J of Chongqing Normal University (Natural Science)

14 J of Beijing Forest University

15 J of Northwest University (Natural Science)

16 Chinese university journals(2) Academic and general in subject matter Aim at revealing the research achievements of the sponsor university Nonprofit and supported by the relevant university financially Average number of staff for each editorial office was 3.7 Most contributions were derived from within campus

17 Difficulties and challenges (1) Publishing model is out of date: not focus on one or a few subjects, ‘ thousands of people have the same face ’ ‘ one publisher one journal ’ business model

18 Difficulties and challenges (2) Lower circulation and impact Difficulty to getting high quality contributions Deficiency in digitization and internationalization

19 Comparing impact factor with relevant specialized journal (1)

20 Comparing impact factor with relevant specialized journal (2)

21 Cultural resources & manpower resources 32% of Chinese university journal started before 1980 and some of them have more than 60 years of history Being expert in publishing articles in basic subjects or theoretical research Non-market-economic model is the advantage of being able to introduce Open Access Thousands of editors are able to act as a team under the leadership of SCUJNS

22 To integrate and open up Setting up a general online repository to publish preprints for every journal Integrate the scattered information and put it into specialized groups Be an exchange platform to allocate some contributions so that the resource can be mutually complementary Be Open Access and be OAI-PMH compliant

23 Some Chinese OA initiatives Sciencepaper Online (http://www.paper.edu.cn)http://www.paper.edu.cn Electronic Journal Archives of Chongqing (EJAOC) (http://www.ejaoc.cn)http://www.ejaoc.cn PaperOpen ( )

24 New international co-operation Elsevier and Springer have both initiated new projects to co-operate with some Chinese university journals The international publishers take responsibility for language improvement and overseas distribution

25 Conclusions Chinese university journals are coming to a turning point in the course of development To integrate the scattered resources and open up is the most pressing matter of the moment Digitization and Open Access is an approach to publication and communication faster, higher and stronger

26 Olympic spirit-faster

27 Olympic spirit-higher

28 Olympic spirit-stronger
