2022 Ask the Experts | Trends in Publishing Chinese Research



OnDemand Ask the Experts | Trends in Publishing Chinese Research


Join our forum on the latest trends in publishing Chinese research. Panelists will consider a number of questions about this evolving landscape:

What do international publishers need to know about research trends in China? 
Is it still important for Chinese researchers to publish in international journals?
How are researchers evaluated in China, and how can international publishers assist them? 
How will the latest developments affect submission trends? 

All attendees are encouraged to bring their own questions to this lively discussion.
