Scripta Sinica (Hanji dianzi wenxian) is one of the largest Chinese full-text databases, with a special focus on the traditional Chinese classics.

The database is provided by the Institute of History and Philology (IHP), Academia Sinica (Taiwan), which will continue to add new titles and new features.
