故宮季刊

 
李玄伯先生在【中國史學史】一書中,曾云:「修史之所憑藉者在於
史料,史料固不能謂即史書;然無史料則何從修撰,又何從考證事跡
之真偽,則謂無史料則無史書,亦從而無史學可也。」國立故宮博物
院可謂提供正確史料的最佳來源。

「故宮季刊」於1966年七月創刊,1983年更名「故宮學術季刊」出版
至今.。為早期故宮博物院研究員之發表文章集結而成,每年僅出版四
冊,共十七卷68期,現已絕版。

編篡修書乃為中國自古而來的行徑,而國立故宮博物院得於當代,創
辦「故宮季刊」,保留國人早期研究中國文物之方向與軌跡,不僅使
後人於研究時有脈絡可尋,更是保存了當代的思考模式。

The National Palace Museum is the best resource for providing authentic historical data and associated research information because Mr. S.B. Li pointed out from his book ”The Study of Chronology of Chinese History”: “We rely on the historical fact and data to prove the accuracy of history book. Otherwise, we won’t be able to learn the history and know the fact and accuracy if we cannot obtain any historical evidence and related data.”
National Palace Museum Quarterly changed its name in 1983 to National Palace Museum Research Quarterly after the first issue since July, 1966. This periodical was the consolidation of researchers work in Museum during its early phase. It was published four times a year and had reached to a total of 17 volume, 68 issues before it became out-of-print.
Book publishing has been a long tradition of Chinese since ancient time. National Palace Museum has continued this tradition on book publishing and preserving the history. Especially, National Palace Museum Quarterly was created with this tradition in mind. This publication offered a direction and path for the study of Chinese antiquities. It not only provides a compass to study the past for people living today, but also a model to preserve the way of thinking and ideology in the past.
