China Research Gateway presents the full spectrum of Chinese research, with exhaustive representation of STEM, social science, and humanities disciplines

China is not only a rich subject for scholarly inquiry, it is also one of the world’s most prolific sources of research across all disciplines. The scale of Chinese scholarly output in areas such as artificial intelligence, materials science, medicine, transportation, climate science, cyber security, communications technology, and quantum computing is extraordinary and continues to grow, making it essential for institutions to expand their intake of Chinese e-resources.

China Research Gateway (CRG) from East View Information Services closes the gap, bringing together the full spectrum of research emerging from China in one convenient and comprehensive package, including a wealth of English-language content. CRG presents a centralized means for discovery and access to this rich trove of research, specifically tailored to serve the needs of North American scholars and institutions.

Read on below to learn more about the benefits CRG brings to your institution and the various e-resources included in it.

Benefits of China Research Gateway

Make efficient use of your funding: Purchased separately, the resources in CRG would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. CRG provides comprehensive coverage of Chinese research across a wide range of subjects at a manageable price, allowing your institution to maximize funding and serve the widest audience of scholars possible.

Simplify acquisition and use of Chinese e-resources: The current state of Chinese e-resources is quite fragmented, with numerous smaller resources competing for attention, each with its own platform, business model, and even license agreement. CRG simplifies the decision-making process, offering a single unified portfolio of resources and providing unrestricted access to the fullest spectrum of research content from China.

Support equity, diversity, and inclusion in your library collections: CRG provides scholars with access to publications from China like never before, helping to promote critical thinking, information exchange, and discovery of different perspectives across a wide variety of disciplines.

Simplify access with a single, uniform portal: CRG provides an intuitive, English-language portal designed by East View for ease of browsing and accessing all the databases included. Users will have access to uniform information across all CRG resources, plus supplementary materials such as fact sheets, title lists, and user guides.

Support scholars with abundant resources on the latest research from China: CRG presents an unparalleled depth and breadth of sources, including scholarly journals, monographs, statistical publications, government documents, newspapers, dissertations, patents, and more, on the latest research across all disciplines, including STEM, social sciences, and humanities.

Support a wide range of scholars with English-language content from China: CRG features several English-language databases, including content from academic journals, dissertations, conference proceedings, yearbooks, and more. In addition, many other databases within CRG feature English-language interfaces and abstracts, and support searching in English, making these valuable resources more accessible to a wider audience.

Support visiting scholars and strengthen recruitment efforts: CRG offers visiting scholars and faculty from China a wealth of resources for their research, while also demonstrating to potential Chinese recruits the level to which your institution values the research coming out of China and how it supports the work being done by visiting scholars.
