Sources are the basis for research on history, not only in Chinese Studies. Yet location, content or the very existence of sources are often unknown and qualified information is sometimes hard to come by. Chinese historians are often unaware of Qing archival material outside China, but also Western sinologists are only too often hampered by lack of knowledge about archives in other countries.
The China Archives helps scholars in Modern Chinese History to the rich sources available in Europe and beyond. It publishes research on materials and sources in archives, libraries and collections outside China, ranging from the accessibility of sources to the relevance of their content.
The China Archives not only offers research articles on single documents or files, but on a regular basis also offers the indispensable overview articles of a whole archive or the holdings of a (European) country.
