Monographs and Articles

  Ershi shiji Song shi yanjiu lunzhu mulu
(Bibliography of Twentieth-Century Scholarly Research on Song History)
Fang Jianxin 方建新, ed.
Beijing: Beijing tushuguan 北京图书馆出版社, 2006

This bibliography includes over 41,000 articles and books in Chinese published in mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan in the twentieth century up to and including 2000.
It is divided into two main parts, separating publications published between October 1949 and 2000 in Taiwan and Hong Kong from those published in mainland China (including those published in Taiwan and Hong Kong before October 1949). Each part is further subdivided by format into articles (appearing in both journals and edited volumes) and monographs (including twentieth-century editions of Song titles). The entries are grouped by topic and are entered chronologically under each (sub-)topic.
There is an author index arranged by pinyin transliteration.
This bibliography is an updated edition of earlier bibliographies by Fang Jianxin and the Hangzhou daxue guji yanjiusuo Song shi yanjiusuo 杭州大學古籍研究所、宋史研究所 which were published privately and did not enjoy wide circulation (Song shi yanjiu lunzhu mulu 宋史研究论著目录, 1982 and Song Liao Xiao Jin shi yanjiu lunzhu suoyin 宋辽夏金史研究论著索引, 1985). This revised edition includes many more titles (the 1982 edition included 2800 entries; the 1986 edition 13,000), and was cross-checked against Song Xi’s bibliographies covering research between 1905 and 2000.
Subdivision is uneven with some categories very broad and general like “law.”
