Abstract

Global discoverability of graduate research: challenges and opportunities for researchers and librarians

Chinese research output is now second in volume only to that of the USA, having surpassed that of Germany, UK and Japan. This paper will examine factors that impact collaboration and discoverability of global research, with a focus on China. ProQuest has recently concluded a series of research projects that focused on China regarding Chinese scholars' attitudes toward collaboration. The research also examined workflow and tools used, and constraints that influenced research behaviour. Further, this session will review challenges faced in discovering research in other languages and share ProQuest's approach toward bringing non-English language graduate work to a global audience.
