Evaluation Criteria for the Frontier of Modern Chinese History (Abstract)

 

Niu Dayong

 

Scholars, no matter from what country or with what nationality, are considered to have achieved frontier achievements when they have promoted a certain research area in international academia to a more advanced and in-depth state than their predecessors had; crossing the academic frontier within a certain country is not the same. In this sense, academics have no borders. So what deserves to be called “frontier”? What signifies a proper evaluation? The most reliable standard is the recognition of peer experts at home and abroad.
