Taiwan Academic Classics (TAC) is the full-text inter-databases platform, which accommodates 9 acclaimed archives, focusing on the research of humanities and social sciences in Taiwan. Aiming for contributing to the global sinologist community, we compile rare and exclusive content from 1928 to the present on this platform. Firstly, each archive on this platform is full-text searchable, such as: Sinica Sinoweb (1928–), Zhuanji Wnxue Digital Archive (1962–), Modern China database (1977–2005), Lionart Digital Archive (1977-1996), Taiwan Wenxian Congkan (Xia dynasty — Qing dynasty).
Secondly, not only can you find the invaluable historical documents in these archives, but you can also obtain the most up-to-date papers from the excellent journals of Taiwan. Our academic team strives for providing you the best searching experience by collecting the great content of THCI (Taiwan Humanities Citation Index), TSSCI (Taiwan Social Sciences Citation Index) and Notable Journals — which are evaluated by Ministry of Science and Technology annually in order to maintain the research papers in high-quality.
