[Purposes] This paper aims to analyze the characteristics and deficiencies of Scopus-indexed Chinese journals of humanities and social sciences (HSS) and propose suggestions for the "going out" of HSS journals in China. [Methods] Multivariate statistical analysis was used to study the 83 Scopus-indexed Chinese journals of HSS. To be specific, data on the number of the journals, disciplines, languages, organizers, publishers, CN, copyright owner, and access mode were collected and the correlation was elucidated. [Findings] Scopus-indexed Chinese journals of HSS take up a small proportion among all the indexed journals of HSS. They cover a wider range of disciplines, particularly social sciences, arts and humanities, and business, management and accounting. Most of them are in English, disseminated by foreign publishers, and organized by universities. The majority of the journals in English have no CN, and organizers of some of the 83 journals do not have the copyright. More journals seek open access. [Conclusions] Chinese journals of HSS should make efforts to be included in more database, and strengthen their power of academic discourse and independent distribution in the world, seeking clustering in large scale and transforming to open access. More English HSS journals are encouraged to be created, and journals in Chinese are advocated to be internationalized. The relative government department, sponsor, and organizer of HSS journals shall enhance the management and support to HSS journals.

【目的】 分析我国人文社科学术期刊被Scopus数据库收录的特点和存在问题,提出进一步推动我国人文社科期刊走出去的措施和建议。【方法】 采用多元统计和分析法对Scopus数据库收录的我国主办的83种人文社科期刊,从收录规模、学科领域、语种情况、对外出版和传播机构、主办单位、是否有CN号、期刊版权归属以及是否开放获取8个维度收集数据,分析研究各维度的相关特征。【结果】 我国人文社科期刊被Scopus收录的比例低;学科覆盖面较广,涉及较多的是社会学科,人文艺术学科,商业、管理和会计学科等;被收录的主要为英文期刊;大多通过国外出版集团对外传播;被收录期刊的主办单位以我国高校为主;多数英文期刊没有CN号;有些期刊的版权不属于中方;被收录期刊开放获取模式转型趋势明显。【结论】 我国人文社科期刊应进一步提升国际学术话语权,多举措办好英文期刊,加强中文期刊国际传播能力建设,提升期刊的集约化和规模化水平,增强自主化对外传播能力;相关管理部门和主管单位应加强期刊管理和提供保障,适当增加开放获取期刊比例。
