China Daily: A case for non-profit academic databases

China Daily: A case for non-profit academic databases. “Given that the sharing of academic resources helps promote research, China should encourage the National Library and other public institutions to develop non-profit academic databases for use by the public. As China’s national strength grows, its investment in research and development has increased substantially, reaching 2.79 trillion yuan ($437.49 billion) in 2021, with the proportion of R&D investment in GDP reaching 2.44 percent. In this context, the State should develop or acquire academic databases of commercial institutions to stop them from becoming profit-making tools hindering academic research.”
