Academic Freedom in the People’s Republic of China (WFCXI): Bibliometric pilot study

Start of the project: 2022-Jul-01 - End of the project: 2023-Dec-31

The WFCXI project, in cooperation with FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, deals with the institutional autonomy of universities in China as well as with the freedom of academic exchange. Both are important aspects of academic freedom protected under international law. The analysis of de jure and de facto limitations of academic freedom are in the focus of this project. A further goal is to trace the development and potential effects on the Chinese research and science system since Xi Jinping came to power. Results will be evaluated in cooperation with renowned China experts and edited for the German and international audience.

In the DZHW sub-project, the suitability of bibliometric data for monitoring academic freedom will be tested in a pilot study.
