KIEV Daryl Williams Panthers Jersey , Sept. 1 (Xinhua) -- Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a decree to introduce a biometric system at its border control from Jan. 1 next year, the presidential press service said Friday.
According to the decree, Ukraine will collect biometric data from foreigners who cross the border in order to strengthen its national security.
Poroshenko also ordered the cabinet to amend the legislation on the registration of non-citizens in Ukraine and revise the list of countries with migration risk.
In particularly, the president asked the government to consider a possibility of including Russia into the list of the states with high migration risk.
In July, the Ukrainian National Security and Defense Council proposed introducing biometric passports for foreign citizens crossing the country's border, including Russians who are allowed to enter Ukraine without a visa.
While commenting on the possible move Russell Shepard Panthers Jersey , the Russian Foreign Ministry accused Ukraine of intending to build a new "iron curtain" to prevent exchanges between the two countries.
Relations between Kiev and Moscow have soured since 2014 when Crimea joined Russia following a referendum, but Ukraine said the peninsula was illegally annexed by Russia and remains Ukrainian territory.

BEIJING Michael Palardy Panthers Jersey , Nov. 29 (Xinhua) -- In most university libraries in China, it is easy to find the latest western academic resources, but it is difficult to find Chinese academic resources in the west.
This awkward position has been called "asymmetry in the changing world cultural order" by Roger Ames, professor of the University of Hawaii and co-director of the Asian Studies Development Program of the East-West Center, in his speech in Beijing Normal University on Nov. 18.
About 2.13 million Chinese scholars publish nearly two million academic articles in 6,449 academic periodicals of China each year Matt Kalil Panthers Jersey , with 3.2 billion annual downloads.
At the "2017 Forum on the future of China Academic Journals" on Nov. 22 and 23, publication experts across China and over 8,000 academic journal employees joined to seek a resolution to break this asymmetry of academic journal development.
In his opening speech, Shi Feng, director of the China Periodicals Association, said that periodicals played a key role in boosting innovative development Devin Funchess Panthers Jersey , creative talent training, domestic and overseas cultural exchange and Chinese soft power.
In recent years, Chinese periodicals have witnessed both quantitative and qualitative development, as well as digital transformation. However, many experts say academic journal development still falls short.
In 2016, 23.4 percent of science academic articles by Chinese scholars were published in overseas journals.
"This indicates a mismatch between the overall development of academic journals and the level of creativity in China Shaq Thompson Panthers Jersey , which poses a serious challenge to academia," said Xiao Hong of the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI).
In 2017, the forum released a report on the global and domestic influence of China's academic journals. China's academic journals still lack promptness in "online first publication."
In the digital era, online first publication has become an arena of international academic competition.
"Publication is the priority," said Zhu Bangfen, chairman of the China Editology Society for Science Periodicals (CESSP). He suggested an academic platform with a quick and timely publication system be built for Chinese scholars.
Wang Zhizhen Daryl Worley Panthers Jersey , an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), said though not all Chinese scholars were willing to publish their articles abroad, two crucial factors -- a long publishing cycle and single alternative publishing language -- had stymied the outflow of academic articles abroad.
She suggested that Chinese periodicals select and publish creative research results as quickly as possible, especially revolutionary ones, providing a publication "express lane."
Another CAS academician Wang Dingsheng put a more fundamental resolution on the table. "To reverse the tendency of academic article outflows, we should build our own academic evaluation standard James Bradberry Panthers Jersey ," Wang said.
Zhu Bangfen criticized the impact factor-oriented, Science Citation Index-oriented, and Social Science Citation Index-oriented standards, which have long dominated Chinese academic journals and obstructed their progress. In the future, academic evaluation standards should shift to the quality of research and their actual impact on scientific research in China.
"Academic journals of a technological power should take the social responsibility of leading trends in scientific technology, demonstrate the general level of national scientific research Harrison Butker Panthers Jersey , support the right of first publication of scientific research results and protect the right of intellectual property," said Wang Zhixin, general manager of Science China Press.
The improvement of academic quality cannot be realized without the supply of first-class academic articles.
"Academic journals should keep their essence and do their best in quality supervision," said Wu Shulin, vice executive director of the Publishers Association of China. He said the industry must stick to publishing real creative articles.
"The development of academic journals should be equipped with advanced technology. The CNKI platform has al.
