On May 11, in response to the rumor that CNKI is a wholly foreign-owned enterprise, Tongfang Shares (600100. SH) responded on the Shanghai e-interactive platform that TONGFANG CNKI Digital Publishing Technology Co., Ltd. and Tongfang CNKI (Beijing) Technology Co., Ltd., which mainly operate CNKI business, are the company's holding subsidiaries.
According to public information, CNKI is an internationally leading online publishing platform integrating journals, doctoral dissertations, master's theses, conference papers, newspapers, reference books, yearbooks, patents, standards, sinology, and overseas literature resources.
However, since December 2021, CNKI has frequently been caught in the turmoil of public opinion, including Zhao Dexin, a retired professor at Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, who informed the network to defend its rights, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences stopped using CNKI due to tens of millions of renewal fees.
In this regard, Tongfang shares said, "We have paid attention to the public opinion of CNKI, and CNKI is also reflecting, and studying the optimization and improvement of the business model, and actively rectifying." CNKI will choose the opportunity to disclose the relevant rectification measures to the public and respond. ”
