Preliminary fruits have been borne in research in the last three years, which is attributed to cooperation and coordination between administrative departments of research, invitation of experts to our school for guidance and advice of our research and encouragement to our faculty members to attend academic conferences and to try publication of their papers on elite journals and for quality projects.
More than ten papers written by our teachers have been published on important academic journals such as Foreign Literature Studies, Contemporary Linguistics, Modern Chinese Literature Studies, more than thirty papers have been admitted to Chinese Social Sciences Citation Index(SSCI), EI, Index to Scientific & Technical Proceedings(ISTP), and many papers have been reproduced in full length on Copied Materials of Renmin University of China and China University Academic Abstracts.
