Lingnan scholars and publications win international awards
For his outstanding editorial work in the Journal of Chinese Literature and Culture; PRISM: Theory and Modern Chinese Literature, and the Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies, Prof Cai Zongqi, Chair Professor of the Department of Chinese, has been named by the Council of Editors of Learned Journals (CELJ) as 2020 Distinguished Editor, the highest honour given by the CELJ. Prof Cai is also the first editor of a journal of Asian literature and culture to receive this award.
Earlier this month, the Lingnan Journal of Chinese Studies, where Prof Cai is Editor-in-Chief, was listed in the Taiwan Humanities Citation Index Core journal by the Research Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences. This is yet another achievement confirming the high quality of Lingnan scholarships since the Journal of Asian Public Policy, edited by Vice-President Prof Joshua Mok Ka-ho, was included in the prestigious Social Sciences Citation Index in October 2020.
Also in January 2021, Prof Larry Qiu, Chair Professor of the Department of Economics, won the T.K. Ann International Trade Award’s Excellent Paper Award for ‘Trade Liberalization and Domestic Vertical Integration: Evidence from China’, the research paper he co-authored with his former students, Prof Liu Qing of the Renmin University of China and Assistant Professor Zhan Chaoqun of Lingnan (University) College at Sun Yat-sen University.
A total of 11 books and 20 papers were selected for the award, and Prof Qiu’s was judged one of the best four.
