On 23rd August, the publishing symposium for the book titled, Academic Publishing Research, was held in Beijing. As one of the most important research programs supported from the national fund of social science, the project had "Evaluation of Chinese Academic Book Quality and Competence of Academic Publishing" as its theme this year. The symposium announced that Guangxi Normal University Press Group ranked in the top 10 among the 101 academic press groups that were a part of the project in terms of its competence in academic publishing of the social sciences and humanities.
The participating press groups included 101 different academic publishing presses from all over China. The rankings were based on the ability to integrate publishing resources, process academic articles, promote academic resource marketing communication, show digital publishing capability, and publish international resources.
By shouldering the responsibility of bridging the gap between readers and books, Guangxi Normal University Press Group has maintained its focus of “Enlightening People and Inheriting Culture" for years now. Publishing good books is the spirit of the Press Group that prioritizes social benefits.
