Two SNNU books supported by 2017 national publishing fund
Two books to be published by Shaanxi Normal University General Publishing House will receive RMB 2.09 million yuan support from the 2017 China National Publishing Fund, as the list of supported books was released recently.
A Collection of Mythological Studies (Volume 2) and A Study of Biodiversity and Economic Value Along the Silk Road will receive 1.91 million yuan and 18,000 yuan support respectively.
The former is a 7.5 million Chinese characters series including 14 translated works by foreign mythologists and seven works by Chinese mythologists.
The latter uses the popular theory of The Economics of Ecosystems and Biodiversity (TEEB) to investigate the biodiversity along the Silk Road and proposes the regulatory framework and paths in protecting this biiodiversity.
This fund is a new addition to the publisher's previous five books supported by the national fund, and the total amount of fund received is 7 million yuan.
