The South China Morning Post is renowned for its authoritative and influential reporting on Hong Kong, China and all of Asia. It is highly regarded by researchers because of the unique history of Hong Kong as well as the newspaper’s editorial perspective on Imperial Japan and Communist China.

The digitization of the South China Morning Post is part of ProQuest’s continuing commitment to expand researchers’ access to international and 20th century news and information.

With searchable, full text coverage from South China Morning Post’s origin in 1903 up to and including 1991, users will be able to search the entirety of the newspaper including advertisements, editorials, cartoons, and photographs that illuminate history as much as the news articles. Moreover, by making it cross-searchable with ProQuest Historical Newspapers (such as The New York Times, The Guardian, Washington Post, Times of India, Christian Science Monitor and other key international titles), researchers can easily perform a comparative historical analysis.
