Li Jiaxing, Vice President of UIR, addressed the seminar on behalf of the university. He briefed on the latest development of the journal since its revamp: as of November 24, 2015, based on Composite Impact Factor, it ranked the 10th among the 119 journals published on CNKI on Politics in China and the World; and Xinhua Digest, Chinese Social Sciences Digest, Reprints from Newspapers and Periodicals by Renmin University of China, China University Academic Abstracts, carried 19 reprints from the papers first published in this journal.
