Chinese Research Perspectives is the new generation of
The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yearbooks. As before the focus will be on the six research areas of the CASS Yearbooks: Education, the Environment, Law, Population and Labor, and Society. The
Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yearbooks on Economy and Legal Development will not continue in the new Chinese Research Perspectives series.
The volumes in the
Chinese Research Perspectives series will no longer be strictly organized on an annual basis. Rather, the selection of contributions will cover developments in China of particular interest to a Western (non-Chinese speaking) audience and will occasionally differ from the Chinese-language yearbooks. The volumes will continue to provide Western readers with firsthand insights into the discussions of China’s top scholars on contemporary issues in their country.
As with the CASS Yearbooks, the original versions of these volumes are published in China by Social Sciences Academic Press (SSAP), the publishing wing of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), and are edited principally by leading researchers from CASS and other top research institutions and universities. The selection of contributions for the English-language Chinese Research Perspectives series and the translations of those volumes are supervised by Western editorial boards.
The series has published an average of three volumes per year since 2013.
