China Monographic Serials (CMSD) is the first and only full-text database of irregularly published Chinese academic literature. In the gray area between journals and book- or reference-like resources, these publications contain high-quality, peer-reviewed research. Offered via the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) platform, CMSD presents a comprehensive collection of high-level content written by experts who are driving the development of research in their respective fields. Dating back to 1979, these resources represent the leading edge of China’s academic journals, covering more than 250 subjects and including more than 98,000 references.
Serials in CMSD are organized by volume, year, issue and other bibliographic information, while CNKI’s Knowledge Network Node enables discovery of related content with subject trees, citation networks, and related literature tools.
CMSD includes 965 titles and nearly 330,000 full-text articles since 1979, covering over 99% of all monographic serials in China.
Publications in CMSD are categorized according to the standard CNKI subject series:
