Oxford Journals has signed an agreement with the Chinese Academic Library and Information System (CALIS), providing libraries in China access to the Oxford Journals Collection.

Funded primarily by the Chinese government, CALIS is a nationwide academic library consortium with a mission to promote, maintain, and improve resource-sharing among Chinese university libraries and other libraries and institutions.

The agreement with CALIS will give up to 600 of their member institutions the option to subscribe at an affordable price to a package of around 200 titles across six subject areas - medicine, life sciences, mathematics and physical sciences, humanities and social sciences.

Commenting on the agreement, Martin Richardson, managing director of Oxford Journals said: ‘We are committed to disseminating our top-quality research as widely as possible and supporting scholarship across Asia. We are delighted that this deal offers access to our journals to so many Chinese researchers and students.’
