* Scripta Sinica Research Group

Chief Coordinator: Cheng-yun Liu

The project for the Scripta Sinica database began in 1984. The first aim of  this project was to digitize all documents essential to research in traditional  Sinology. Secondly, a full-text database was established for academic research.
Until present, Scripta Sinica is the largest Chinese full text database to  encompass an enormous breadth of historical materials of this scale.

More than 923titles (new titles)and 498,011,210 characters of materials pertaining to the traditional Chinese classics have been included in the database  and have been categorized with meticulous care. The Scripta Sinica database
contains almost all of the important Chinese classics, especially those related to  Chinese history. In the future, we will continue with the digitalization of more  historical materials, and add new features to the system. We hope to provide  scholars, students, and the general public with an excellent full-text database  and search engine for the study of Chinese history and culture.
