Wang Enge, director of the blue book’s expert committee, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and editor-in-chief of the English version of the journal Chinese Science Bulletin, and Wu Shulin, deputy director of the blue book’s expert committee, executive vice president of the Publishers Association of China and ex-deputy director of the General Administration of Press and Publication, were among the over 20 committee members and related personnel attending the meeting.
Song Jun, executive secretary of the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST), addressed the meeting.
Liu Xingping, director of CAST’s science societies service center, chaired the meeting.
CAST holds a meeting to finalize the content of the Chinese Science Journals Blue Book 2018 at the China Science and Technology Hall in Beijing on Aug. 28, 2018.
Liu Peiyi, deputy director of the blue book’s compilation committee, gave a general introduction to the book’s compilation, and those in chief charge of each chapter introduced the compilation work of their respective chapters.
The introduction was followed by discussion among expert committee and compilation committee members about the content of the blue book.
Song Jun thanked all committee members for their work on the book.
Citing the favorable response to the 2017 inaugural edition, Song hoped the blue book to grow to be a forward-looking book brand that can accurately reflect and guide the development of China’s science journals in the future.
Academician Wang Enge recognized the work of the compilation committee and thanked committee members for their suggestions for revision.
Intended to serve the development of China’s science journals with accurate analyses and objective conclusions, the blue book contains intensified research on the concept of “publishing across multiple media” and is expected to facilitate the transformation and upgrading of science journals, said Wang.
“Publishing across multiple media” is a concept China’s traditional media are embracing to better perform in the digital world by publishing their content across a wide range of online and offline media.
With well-organized quality content, the 2018 blue book exposes China’s science journals to the advanced experiences and ideas concerning “publishing across multiple media” by clearly defining the concept and identifying the laws governing this concept-based development, said Wu Shulin.
Themed “Science Journals: Publishing Across Multiple Media,” the 2018 blue book is scheduled for release at the 14th Development Forum of China’s Science Journals with an aim to guide China’s science journals to better publish across multiple media, improve their international competitiveness and help them achieve sustainable development.
CAST organized the compilation of the blue book with its Service Center for Member Societies responsible for making and implement relevant plans.
