This partnership is closely aligned with China’s well-documented focus on supporting and improving research integrity.  It offers local proficiency to Chinese institutions, librarians, consortia and researchers, giving them authoritative sources to help support researchers in their publishing journey and assist quality research output from China.


The Charlesworth Group builds on 20 years of experience in China

The Charlesworth Group is recognised globally as the market leader in providing local specialist support to researchers, librarians, institutions and publishers in China. This unique expertise positions The Charlesworth Group to effectively deliver tailored services with local knowledge. As a well-known and trusted organisation with a 20-year history supporting China, The Charlesworth Group can advise on the best strategies and management techniques for librarians, consortia, institutions, researchers and publishers. This new collaboration with Cabells further expands The Charlesworth Group’s offering in China and creates an ideal opportunity for existing and potential clients to improve research integrity.


Alex Lloyd, Director of Sales, Cabells states:

“Cabells is very excited to be working with The Charlesworth Group to help increase our offering within the Chinese market. As a company, our goal is to provide verified and trustworthy information identifying reputable outlets for academics’ publications, whilst helping researchers navigate the growing problem that predatory publications represent. We look forward to the opportunity to further support researchers in China, and to working with The Charlesworth Group to achieve this goal.” 


Michael Evans, Global CEO for The Charlesworth Group comments:

“There is currently a substantial and well-known drive by the Chinese Government to improve author and research integrity. There are serious concerns about the impact of predatory journals on the Chinese author workflow, and the effect this can have on perceptions of research quality. We’re supporting the need for improvements in research integrity by partnering with Cabells to offer essential tools to the Chinese community. These tools complement our existing offerings and allow our clients to evaluate journals with a measured approach.”
