Academia Sinica

POI: 25.043482, 121.614527
Academia Sinica (Chinese: 中央研究院, literally "Central Research Academy"; "Chinese Academy" in Latin), headquartered in the Nangang District of Taipei, is the national academy of Taiwan. It supports research activities in a wide variety of disciplines, ranging from mathematical and physical sciences, to life sciences, and to humanities and social sciences. Academia Sinica has made great progress in recent years, according to Taiwanese scholar Chang Jui-te. An increasing number of research papers written by its faculty members, which numbered 1,150 in 2001, are appearing in international journals. Some journals published by Academia Sinica itself, such as Zoological Studies and Statistica Sinica, have received international recognition. Academia Sinica plays a major role in the field of Chinese studies. For example, the archaeological findings by researchers at the Institute of History and Philology have, in combination with written documents, led to a rewriting of ancient Chinese history, pushing back the span of Chinese history by many centuries. Academia Sinica is ranked 161st in Nature Publishing Index - 2013 Global Top 200.
History and mission
The Academia Sinica was founded in Republic of China in 1928 by the Nationalist government. Its first meeting was held in Shanghai. After the 1949 Revolution, it was relocated to Taiwan. Unlike the Chinese Academy of Sciences, which is exclusively composed of institutes in the natural sciences, Taiwan's Academia Sinica covers three major academic divisions: Mathematics and physical sciences Life sciences Humanities and social sciences The academy was envisioned as an organization that would oversee and coordinate scientific, social science, and humanistic research in all of the Republic of China's state-sponsored research institutes and universities. Unlike other government-sponsored research institutes which are responsible to relevant Executive Yuan ministries, Academia Sinica, as the nation's premier research institution, is directly responsible to the President of the Republic of China. Thus Academia Sinica enjoys autonomy in formulating its own research objectives. In addition to academic research on various subjects in the sciences and humanities, Academia Sinica's major tasks also include providing guidelines, channels of coordination, and incentives with a view to raising academic standards in the country. At the time of Academia Sinica's founding there were already a number of other, smaller institutes in several Chinese cities. Academia Sinica incorporated a number of these into its organization, and rapidly built nine institutes: meteorology, astronomy, physics, chemistry, geology, engineering, psychology, history and philology, and sociology, most of which were located in the new capital city of Nanjing.
