In the era of big data, how to find new methods to analyse large electronic texts poses a challenge to the existing quantitative and qualitative analysis methods of social science. The complex social problems in the era of globalization have challenged sociolinguists. The Centre for Corpus Approaches to Social Sciences, established by Lancaster University with the financial support of the Economic and Social Sciences Research Council, has applied corpus methods to some social sciences, such as the environment, crime and health. Under the guidance of Professor Tony McEnery, Director of the Centre, and with the support of colleagues at home and abroad, and with the support of the Global China Institute, a workshop on corpus approaches to Chinese social sciences was successfully held in 2016. The present Journal of Corpus Approaches to Chinese Social Sciences (JCACSS) was planned at the time, its purpose being to introduce the new corpus approaches to the field of social science in China, explore and publish relevant research and provide an academic exchange platform for people with common interests.

The event of launching the Journal of Corpus Approaches to Chinese Social Sciences (JCACSS) took place at the Reception of the 7th Global China Dialogue, on the 10th December 2021, at the British Academy.

Journal of Corpus Approaches to Chinese Social Sciences (JCACSS) adopts a dual mode of open access (OA) and subscription.
Under the open access model, we make some or all of our content freely available to the public, promoting academic exchange and knowledge sharing. This means that readers can freely access and download certain articles or portions of the journal’s content, without any payment or subscription required.
At the same time, we also offer a subscription model, providing readers who need it with wider access and services. Through subscription, readers can gain access to the full content of the journal, special features or additional resources, as well as other benefits exclusive to subscribers.
It is significant different from the hybrid open-access journals which are typically based on the payment of the author or their institution. Through the dual model, we aim to balance considerations of public interest and commerciality, meeting the broad readership’s demand for open access, while also providing certain financial support for the sustainable development of the journal.
