Abstract

There has been a rapid increase in science and technology research in China over the last ten years, and an upsurge in STM papers is bound to follow.This will seriously challenge the traditional model for publishing and communication through academic journals. This presentation analyses the difficult situation that Chinese university journals are commonly confronted with today. It suggests that new online repositories should be set up to make currently scattered information integrated, and provide open access to it.The proposed digital platforms will improve the visibility and impact of the university journals within both the domestic Chinese and the international scholarly communities. Some open access initiatives such as Sciencepaper Online, E-journal Archives of Chongqing and PaperOpen.com are introduced in this article.
