(1 Jan 2021) From Taipei Times:
The government should create a public database to house academic theses and dissertations, lawmakers and academics said on Wednesday, after private database host Airiti (華藝) was last month accused of changing papers to conform to Chinese censorship rules.
“Taiwan is already 20 years late; we cannot delay any longer,” Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) Legislator Fan Yun (范雲) told a news conference at the Legislative Yuan in Taipei.
Nearly all of the nation’s academic achievements are only possible through public funding distributed by the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Science and Technology, Fan said.
