About CNKI

CNKI (China National Knowledge Infrastructure) starts from the electronic journals (CD edition) publishing project initiated by Tsinghua University in 1996. After over 20 years of innovation and development, it has been widely used in research and learning in all walks of life across the world. Tongfang Knowledge Network Technology Co., Ltd. Beijing (hereafter referred to as CNKI), is the undertaker of CNKI project. It is dedicated to promoting large-scale digitization of China knowledge resources and establishing a platform for global dissemination and value-added services.

Through large-scale integrated publication, CNKI has built a comprehensive and research-oriented Chinese information resource system—China Integrated Knowledge Resources Database, which collects over 90% of China knowledge resources and covers journals, dissertations, newspapers, proceedings, yearbooks, reference works, e-books, encyclopedia, patents, standards, S&T achievements, laws & regulations, etc. In addition to Chinese resources, CNKI has developed English and bilingual products “Journal to help non-Chinese speaking scholars to access the best Chinese research findings”. It also integrates well-known foreign language resources from Springer, Taylor & Francis and Wiley, forming a complete Chinese and foreign language knowledge service network.
