This is a bi-monthly export. CERD is a database of engineers from the Chinese Republican period (1912–1949). The digital analysis of historical registers has led to a prosopographic catalogue of persons, educational institutions, and companies. The data can be put in relation to one another by researchers to answer individual research questions. Citation recommendation: Pelzer, Thorben, et al., ed. (2021).
