Zhongxin Jingwei, April 18 (Yan Shuxin) Recently, the topic of #Chinese Academy of Sciences deactivating CNKI has aroused heated discussion on Weibo. It is suspected that the Documentation and Information Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences issued a notice on April 8 saying that Tongfang CNKI Technology Co., Ltd. (CNKI database publisher) suspended the permission of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to use the CNKI database, and from now on, the CNKI science and technology journals and doctoral and master's degree dissertation databases cannot be downloaded.

According to media reports, the above notice mentioned that "in 2021, the total cost of ordering the CNKI database of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Group has reached the level of tens of millions, and the high ordering cost has become a 'big Mac' in the introduction of resources by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Group." ”

On the 18th, CNKI responded to Zhongxin Jingwei that the above news was "not true". In addition, Zhongxin Jingwei called the official website of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the Documentation and Information Center of the Chinese Academy of Sciences respectively, and its staff said that they were not clear about the matter and were not responsible for the relevant business. However, according to the Red Star Capital Bureau, on the 17th, the reporter confirmed the matter from a number of Insiders of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

It is reported that CNKI has previously been boycotted by universities due to frequent price increases. In January 2016, Wuhan University of Technology issued a notice of CNKI deactivation. The school said: "Due to the outrageous price increase in the renewal price, our school's negotiations with CNKI were unsuccessful. Over the years, CNKI's excessive price increase has received boycotts from many universities across the country, including many well-known 985 universities. ”

The library of Wuhan University of Technology said that since 2000, CNKI's annual quotation increase has exceeded 10%, from 2010 to 2016, the quotation increase was 132.86%, and the average annual increase was 18.98%. However, less than a month later, Wuhan University of Technology re-ordered and resumed the opening of CNKI data.

Coincidentally, in March of the same year, Peking University also posted a notice that CNKI was about to be discontinued, saying that it was "not easy to compromise with excessive price increases by merchants." At that time, the relevant person in charge of the Peking University Library told the media that the purchase cost of CNKI was too high and exceeded the budget limit of the library.

According to the information of Tianyancha, the company of CNKI is Tongfang CNKI (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Tongfang CNKI), which was established on November 18, 2004 and is a subsidiary of Tongfang Shares, an A-share listed company.
