Asian Archaeology, an annual, English-language journal, is edited by the Research Center for Chinese Frontier Archaeology of Jilin University, a Chinese Ministry of Education sponsored Key Research Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences at Universities. 

Digest:   Over the past half century, archaeologists have explored the advantages of the "fullcoverage" survey methodology and have applied it in many regions, including Mesoamerica, northern South America, Mesopotamia,Britain, and Continental Europe (Cherry et al.1988: 159-162; Haselgrove et al. 1985: 1-115). A wide variety of adaptations of the full-coverage survey methodology have emerged from this work, targeting different types of remains,terrains, and research questions, as well as different sizes of survey area.
In China, full-coverage survey methods have only been gradually introduced over the last twenty years, again arising from the American tradition of systematic regional survey. The adoption of this survey methodology over previous unsystematic pedestrian surveys accompanied the reintroduction of Western theoretical models of social change into the practice of archaeology in China. Three main regions have undergone multiyear full-coverage survey by teams of international collaborators,including the Rizhao area in southeastern Shandong Province (Underhill et al. 2002:745-755), the Yi and Luo River valleys in western Henan (Liu 1996: 75-100; Liu et al. 2004:75-100), and eastern Inner Mongolia, focusing on the Chifeng region (Chifeng 2003: 1-180; Linduff at al. 2004: 45-73; Chifeng 2011: 1-153).In recent years, there have also been an increasing number of surveys using a similar methodology conducted independently by Chinese archaeologists.
The choice of specific full-coverage survey method depends on local conditions, on the time and resources available for a given project,and most importantly on its research goals. In the Chifeng survey, a resolution of 50 m between survey team members was chosen to cover an initially projected area of 1,100 km2 (Chifeng 2003: 107, 123, 124; Chifeng 2011: 54),which was later expanded to 1,234 km2 (Chifeng 2011: 2). The same resolution was also used in the Rizhao project, which covered 1,120 km2 in eleven years (Underhill et al. 2008: 2, 3).
