Index on Censorship magazine’s publishers Sage have informed Index that 115 articles from Index on Censorship magazine, some of which mention Tiananmen Square, have been blocked on the Sage database of academic journals in China (a paid-to-view platform for academics).
Index has responded by making all articles immediately and freely available to access for anyone around the world.
These articles will now remain free on the open web, for all to access at any time. We are also in the process of translating the articles into Mandarin and placing them on our own website.
Index continues to monitor the situation in China, and is consulting on further steps.
