China academic journals (CAJ)

Since November 2010 we have access to China Academic Journals [中国期刊全文数据库], a vast collection of Chinese electronic journals. Our license covers four major subjects, resulting in access to over 4,000 journals:

You can search this ejournal database by pinyin or in Chinese characters. Most journals are covered from their first issue, since we have access to all of the archives. Once one has found an article, there is an abstract, plus a list of links to all articles cited inside the article. Furthermore, the list of ‘similar documents’ is really useful – it not only searches through the whole CAJ database for other materials covering the same subject, but also the databases of the Chinese Masters’ (CMFD) and Doctoral Dissertations (CDFD), plus the Chinese Yearbooks. The CAJ fulltext journal database works for multiple concurrent users and is definitely worth checking out!

The Staatsbibliothek Berlin has put a user Guide CAJ [PDF] online. Please note you can only access the fulltext journals from inside the library network, or after logging in with your university password from home.
