China academic journals (CAJ)

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.
