Introduction to Classical Chinese was produced with support from the Rebus Community, a non-profit organization building a new, collaborative model for publishing open textbooks. Critical to the success of this approach is including mechanisms to ensure that open textbooks produced with the Community are high quality, and meet the needs of all students who will one day use them. Rebus books undergo both peer review from faculty subject matter experts and beta testing in classrooms, where student and instructor feedback is collected.
This book has been peer reviewed by the contributors, the book editors, and their students in the classroom.
The review was structured around considerations of the intended audience of the book, and examined the comprehensiveness, accuracy, and relevance of content, as well as longevity and cultural relevance. Further review by the book editors focused on clarity, consistency, organization structure flow, and grammatical errors. We welcome further suggestions, comments, and additions from users.
