Research and Scholarship

Research and Scholarship is an annual report that aims to inform both the local and the international academic audience about research and scholarly activities at The University of Hong Kong by providing for each report period an overview of the University's research, highlighting major institutional achievements; details of ongoing research projects and research output; and a list of titles of theses by HKU research postgraduate students for which higher degrees were conferred.
