New Network for Chinese Researchers

With a goal of reducing the barriers separating Chinese researchers from their counterparts in the U.S. and Europe, Anianet announced the launch of the Anianet professional network (www.anianet.com). Tens of thousands of Chinese scientists, professors, and other scholarly professionals are currently conducting vital, groundbreaking work. Anianet integrates these Chinese intellectuals into the international community by providing a platform to create free English-language profiles detailing their professional accomplishments in a format that is optimized for a Western audience, as well as by providing vital information detailing Western grants, research partnerships, jobs, fellowships, meetings, publications, and other opportunities. In short, Anianet provides Chinese researchers with a "western base of operations" for the first time.

One of the most substantial problems within the research community today is the divide separating Chinese and Western scholars. While the number of Chinese scholars is exploding both in absolute terms and as a percentage of authors in high-impact scientific journals, Chinese researchers find it difficult to make their interests and expertise known to Western colleagues. More than 80% are not very satisfied with the visibility of their research and writing among their European and American colleagues. An equal number would like to be more knowledgeable about Western research trends and opportunities. Anianet provides a bridge to this burgeoning market. Anianet launched in preview mode late this summer, and already, thousands of Chinese scholars-in fields ranging from architectural design to zoology-have created Anianet profiles.
