Wanfang Data is an index to Chinese publications in science and technology.

This LibGuide is intended for researchers who do not read Chinese.

Use the Google Chrome browser when searching so you can take advantage of the embedded Google Translate system.  It appears that Wanfang Data uses the Simplified Chinese characters.

The Wanfang Data package includes China Online Journals in the fields of Fundamental Science and Industrial Technology.
