How to Cite CBDB

How to Cite CBDB

Citing a database is just an important as citing a journal article or anything else you refer to in your publications. Many citation styles do not have a set way to cite data, so you may have to adapt an existing format when you cite CBDB data.

We suggest using the following format to cite CBDB in your work (please change date accordingly):

Harvard University, Academia Sinica, and Peking University, China Biographical Database (January 1, 2018), https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/cbdb.

If you need to cite our user’s guide, here is a recommended format (please change data accessed accordingly):      

Fuller, Michael A. “The China Biographical Database User’s Guide.” February 28, 2015. Accessed January 1, 2018. https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/cbdb.

如何引用CBDB數據

參考過我們數據庫的資料之後,請記得在您的學術著作中規範地引用。這麼做的重要性絕對不下於引用其他文獻,如學術論文。不是所有的文獻引注格式都清楚地訂明如何引用數據,所以您有時候需要對格式稍作調整。

我們建議利用以下格式引用CBDB數據(請地把其中日期改成您使用的日期):

Harvard University, Academia Sinica, and Peking University, China Biographical Database (January 1, 2018), https://projects.iq.harvard.edu/cbdb.

如您需要引用我們的中文版《用戶指南》,可以利用以下格式(請把下載日期改成您參考《用戶指南》的日期):
