Learn Chinese in China


Chinese websites of academic articles

Recommended Posts



Not sure where should I post this, but does anyone know any reliable Chinese websites to look up academic articles and research papers in Chinese?

It would be extremely helpful. 🙏

CNKI is the one I think of, but there are people on here who might have other ideas.

Obviously not a Chinese website, but Google scholar does index papers in Chinese: https://scholar.google.com/


If you want to specify results in simplified or traditional Chinese click on the "Hamburger menu", then settings and then languages. But doing a search in Chinese will give you results in Chinese anyway.

As Roddy said, CNKI is a big one, albeit limited to the Mainland.


You can also try:

this repository of Taiwan periodicals: 臺灣期刊論文索引系統

Academic Sinica's search: 經典人文學刊庫

Airitri, which is basically Taiwan's CNKI: 華藝線上圖書館

Hong Kong Journals Online (English and Chinese)


Your access to these may vary depending on your institution. If you have no access for whatever reason, try searching the author and title on Baidu and Google. It's a lot harder to download stuff like this on Baidu these days, but it's worth a shot. Failing that, you could always directly email people for a copy (if they're still alive).
