Abstract: [Purposes] This paper aims to analyze the characteristics of DOAJ-indexed Chinese open access (OA) journals and their charging policies to provide references for the establishment of an article processing charge (APC) system for OA journals in China. [Methods] A total of 253 Chinese and English journals in China included in DOAJ were used as the research objects, and the time of inclusion, language distribution, publisher distribution, discipline distribution, and charging policies of each journal were collected from the journals’ official websites and DOAJ database by web research method. Then, the characteristics of the journals and their charging policies were analyzed. [Findings] The number of Chinese OA journals included in DOAJ is small, and the distribution of OA journals by discipline is uneven. The degree of intensification of OA journal publishing is not high. Chinese OA journals and Chinese and English OA journals still follow the traditional mode of charging page fees and the fees are generally not high. English OA journals have initially established APC charging rules. Different disciplines show differences in APC. [Conclusions] Strengthening policy guidance, enhancing information construction, improving journal service quality, encouraging Chinese researchers to debut their results in Chinese OA journals, and developing a charging system framework suitable for the development of OA journals in China will promote OA publishing development in China.
“Dr. Melody Yunzi Li, assistant professor of Chinese in the University of Houston College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, collaborated with the UH Libraries department of Open Education Services to create the first volume of a student-authored dictionary of Chinese popular culture terms.
Students in the spring 2023 Chinese Popular Culture course each defined three popular culture terms for their midterm assignments and were invited to contribute their work to this digital open educational resource (OER). This was the second successful collaboration with Dr. Li, following the development of another student-authored textbook for her Tales of East Asian Cities course last fall….”

Abstract: This study investigates the attitudes of Chinese PhD students toward predatory journals. Data were gathered using an online questionnaire to which 332 Chinese PhD students responded. Our main conclusions are 1) in the sciences, technology, and medicine, respondents frequently confused predatory journals with open access journals; 2) in the humanities and social sciences, the respondents identified only Chinese-language (not English-language) journals as predatory and made a number of misidentifications; and 3) most respondents indicated that they would not submit papers to predatory journals, mainly because doing so would hurt their reputation, yet the minority who were willing to do so mentioned easy acceptance and a short wait time for publication as the top reasons for considering it.
“The East Asia Digital Library (EADL), a portal site for cultural and scientific resources in East Asian languages, was launched on December 17, 2020. Configuration and operation of the EADL is being performed by the National Library of Korea (NLK) with the cooperation of the National Diet Library (NDL). The EADL is unique in that it allows integrated searches of historical materials in the Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages held by either the NLK or the NDL. Both libraries have provided metadata for roughly 4,000 historical materials, and at present some 8,000 items are available in digital form. In addition to simple keyword searches, users can perform advanced searches by title, creator, or subject matter. Additional items will be added as they become available. In addition to viewing digitized images of most materials by clicking a link to the digital platform of the host library, users can also enjoy browsing an online exhibition entitled the East Asia Digital Library Collection, which can be displayed chronologically or by subject matter. Additionally, metadata for EADL content is available via an EADL API service, which allows users convenient access to data for easy use in other systems or applications.”
