Airiti Journals 中文電子期刊服務資料庫


Our library has access to Airiti Journals 中文電子期刊服務資料庫, until 2016 known as TEPS 台湾电子期刊服务网 or Taiwan Electronic Periodical Services. The Airiti Journals are a collection with over 900 fulltext journals from Taiwan in the fields of humanities – including religion, philosophy, history, art, linguistics, literature, anthropology – and social sciences – including education. There are also journals in the field of medical science, natural sciences and applied sciences. Most of the journals are in Chinese, but there are also several journals in English. Use the search screen on the top left to search for articles or journal titles.

Most of the journals are roughly available from 2005, although some journal archives are from an even earlier date. Journals are published online within several weeks of their publication and are ordered by date, newest first.

All fulltext articles have a short abstract in Chinese and English, and are available to download as a PDF file using the red button saying ‘Download PDF’.

All journals are accessible from home for university students and staff with your ULCN username and password, through the ‘Find Databases’ option in the library catalogue, or else this link to Airiti Journals.

ACLS Humanities E-Book collection

The Leiden University Libraries have acquired a new set of e-books on the platform ACLS (American Council of Learned Societies), the ACLS Humanities E-Book collection or ‘HEB’ in short.

There are about 4000 e-books from the humanities, mostly area studies and historical studies. Several titles are already in use on the East Asian Library teacher shelves (i.e. Stevan Harrell’s Cultural encounters on China’s ethnic frontiers) and there are many other well read titles on China, Japan and Korea, so it is interesting to have a look! I found 70 books for China and 50 for Japan and Korea.
All titles can be found through the university catalogue as well.

Search the full title list here. If you would like to stay up to date with new titles, follow their blog ACLS humanities e-book.
