We must value our value and values as independent thinkers. Our voices are powerful.
Growing up with the rise of China in the 21st century, www.Sciso.org (South China International Studies Online), a leading English-Chinese Internet academic organization and a non-governmental international studies audiovisual platform based in South China, is established by Chinese experts, enthusiasts and representatives from universities in the field of international studies within the People’s Republic of China, with a special focus on the USA issues. It constantly recruits overseas voluntary academic coordinators working for the website by e-mail.
Sciso.org, edited with the widely received academic ethics by famous Chinese scholars, is shaped as a producer, a provider, a publisher, a broadcaster and a disseminator of views, news, and academic information. It aims to create a new diplomacy model—the Internet diplomacy, invites experts from different countries to bring depth and knowledge on line to readers in China and also has personality profiles of those who are shaping the think tanks in mainland China, making them flourish on the Web with its free-moving communities and giving them a virtual plot for real-time communication.
Sciso.org translates major news releases from newspapers, journals and websites both at home and abroad, and new policies, resolutions and statements of different governments across the world for academic, educational and informational purposes. Internet users can also find in special columns of the website useful information about the activities of Chinese leaders, basic facts on China, and places of interest in China and English comments on other states made by both internal scholars and average Chinese citizens. The website’s English Channel has been made by its commendable editing work a first-rate distributing center of information about new academic trends in China.
Supported by professionals and amateurs—our attractively prominent backers in the past several years, Sciso.org has been successful in functioning as a non-profit independent organization ,and has become a good piece of online real estate.
The website proprietor and maintenance group is the Sciso.org Board (also named Website Affairs Commission) and the sponsor is the Sciso.org Fund with all its members from research institutions and universities.
Sciso.org, as one of the Chinese academic media, is the main charter member of the to-be-established China International Studies Websites Alliance (CISWA), a union of leading international studies websites in China.
