About PubScholar

PubScholar, a public academic platform, is built by the Chinese Academy of Sciences as a leading force in the national strategic scientific and technological system. It fulfills the role of safeguarding academic resources as the “national team” to meet the academic resource needs for scientific and technological innovation in the entire scientific and technological community and society. The platform provides services such as discovery, access, and sharing of public academic resources.

The platform, with the premise of respecting intellectual property rights and international norms, leverages the advantages of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in possessing rich and high-quality academic resources. It encourages collaboration with academic resource institutions both domestically and internationally, aiming to maximize access to high-quality academic resources. So far, the platform integrates resources from the Chinese Academy of Sciences, including scientific and technological achievements, scientific publications, and academic exchange resources. It also incorporates academic resources that can be integrated under an open-access (OA) environment, as well as those authorized through agreements, licenses, or other cooperative modes.

The platform focuses on exploring the construction of public academic resources and innovates in service models, with a commitment to achieving mutually beneficial cooperation with various academic resource owners and providers globally. The goal is to create a collaborative and shared mode, effectively promoting the long-term and sustainable development of public academic resource services.
