Buying Rights from China

ITA now handles the international rights for many of the leading university, educational and trade presses in China.

Chinese publishers are increasingly interested in promoting their titles abroad and selling translation and reprint rights to international publishers. The Chinese government may subsidize translation costs for certain titles. China is now second only to the USA in terms in terms of research output. Outside China, more than 30% of PhD candidates in North America and UK are of Chinese origin. Chinese studies engagement by foreign scholars is growing rapidly worldwide. International research libraries are building Chinese text collections. While there is undoubtedly variation in quality of published output from China , this will change as Chinese research grows further in stature and reputation. Developments in Chinese academic studies are too significant not to be a part of foreign international publishers’ interests. Similarly, there is a stock of Chinese history, literature, philosophy, religion, cultural studies, business, technological achievements, politics, and business which is essential information for international readers whether academic, professional, student or general readers.
