      From 2006, the Center also began publishing the E-Newsletter for Research in Chinese Studies in order to present academic news in a timely fashion. This publication is sent out to subscribers via email every month. Contents include information about academic activities, seminars, conferences, personnel changes, publications, etc.

 

3. Sponsorship of the Research Grant Program to Assist Foreign Scholars in  Chinese Studies 

     Since the establishment of the Research Grant Program to Assist Foreign Scholars in Chinese Studies in 1989, we have received applications from scholars all over the world. We provide research stipends and round trip air tickets to foreign professor, associate professors, assistant professors, and PhD candidates, encouraging them to come to Taiwan to do their Sinology research in Taiwan. Stipends differ according to position; professors are granted 60,000 NTD per month, associate professors 50,000 NTD per month, and assistant professors, and PhD candidates 40,000 per month. Research period is from 3 months to 1 year in range. When the research period is over, grant recipients must submit a research report, and we will select outstanding ones for publishing. From time to time we also hold seminars and cultural trips for the scholars.

     Due to our fine reputation, many applicants are attracted each year. As of to date, more than 1,500 applicants have applied. As of 2014, we have sponsored more than 390 scholars from 41 countries, including the US, Canada, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, England, Belgium, Lietuva, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Latvia, Estonia, Yugoslavia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Russia,  South Africa, Turkey, Israel, India, Japan, Korea, Mongolia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and Vietnam.

 

4. Holding of academic symposiums 

     We invite international visiting scholars and foreign sinologists who have received the Research Grant for Foreign Scholars in Chinese Studies to give seminars so that local and international scholars may exchange research findings and communicate with each other. From 1989 to December, 2014, we have held over 247 seminars. Speakers include scholars from the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Italy, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Lietuva, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Poland, Austria, Russia, Turkey, the Czech Republic, and Slovenia.

 

5. Holding of international conferences

    To exchange and communication among Sinologists at the international level, we invite foreign scholars in Taiwan and participants in our Research Grant Program to Assist Foreign Scholars in Chinese Studies to give talks on their research. During the past 30 years, we have held or coordinated more than 10 international seminars, including “Symposium on the New Era of Chinese Studies in Taiwan.”

 

6. Participation in international book exhibitions 

     With the aim of presenting the results of Sinological research in Taiwan and promoting international academic and cultural exchange, the Center participates actively in a variety of international book exhibitions, including regular attendance of the following:

1. Book Exhibition of the Annual Meeting of the American Association for Chinese Studies: the Center has been participating in this exhibition since 1985, displaying Chinese studies works published in Taiwan on behalf of the Executive Yuan Government Information Office.

7. Establishment and promotion of the Chinese Studies Information System 

    In light of both the Center's mission and the ever-increasing functions of international computer networks, in June 1993 the Liaison Division was entrusted with the task of establishing the Chinese Studies Information System. The goals of this system are as follows:

1. To provide on-line coverage of the latest Chinese studies activities in Taiwan and abroad.

2. To provide on-line information on major Chinese studies conferences in Taiwan and abroad.

3. To establish a database of Chinese Studies organizations in Taiwan and abroad.

        4. To establish a database of Sinological works from Taiwan and abroad. 

 

8. Collection and exchange of books and periodicals 

The Center currently has publication exchange arrangements with over 60 universities, research institutions and private academic organizations in Taiwan, and over 30 Chinese studies organizations in the US, Europe and Asia. We exchange over 90 publications, and receive 600-700 periodicals, serials and conference proceedings, on an annual basis.

The publications we receive are used for compiling bibliographies and reporting on publication news; selected works are displayed at overseas book exhibitions, after which they are donated to university libraries.
