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, colleges, and workplaces. The data can be put in relation to one another by researchers to answer individual research questions. Citation recommendation: Pelzer, Thorben, et al., eds. (2021–2022).
