On May 15 both the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the National
Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) announced new open access
policies. 

 

Both funders' policies require that all papers resulting from funded
projects must be deposited in online repositories and made publicly
accessible within 12 months of publication - a model pioneered by the US
National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2008, when it introduced its
influential Public Access Policy.

 

As a result of the new Chinese policies there will be a significant increase
in the number of research papers freely available, not least because it
comes at a time when the number of papers published by Chinese researchers
is growing rapidly. In reporting news of the policies, Nature indicated that
Chinese research output has grown from 48,000 articles in 2003, or 5.6% of
the global total, to more than 186,000 articles in 2012, or 13.9%.

 

Of the latter figure, more than 100,000 papers, or 55.2%, involved some
funding from the NSFC. 

 

A Q&A conducted by email with Prof. Yonghe Zheng, Deputy Director General 
of
the Bureau of Policy, NSFC can be viewed here:
