Further discussion of censorship in China (comment)

Friends:

Our sister H-Net network, H-Asia, has a follow-up post by Elizabeth Redden sharing links to recent comments on censorship of academic work in China and on Chinese efforts to control scholarly communication about China overseas.

Further discussion of censorship in China (comment)

Friends:

Our sister list, H-Asia, is still discussing the agreement of Springer Nature to take down content from its journals at the request of the Chinese government.  Some academics are proposing a boycott of Springer and have created an online petition to that effect.

I wonder whether this acquiescence is different in kind from the promises that Facebook and Google are making to American officials unhappy over the proliferation of Russian "news" online.

In the news: China and Cambridge (comment)

Last week, the Chinese government demanded that Cambridge University Press remove hundreds of articles that had appeared in its journal China Quarterly from its database. China has also recently demanded removal of about 100 scholarly articles from the Journal of Asian Studies, which is also published by Cambridge, and has tightened up its rules for imported books.
