The NMC has a long tradition of systematic and subject-specific jade research based on its collections, aimed at a full exploration of the traditional jade culture of the Chinese nation. There have over the years emerged a lot of jade researchers of great attainments, notably among other, for example, Yue Feng who published Hotan Jade Appreciation and Collection, Wang Yueqian who published The Art of Jade in Ancient China, and Zhang Runping who published Gems from Yinxu: Jade Objects Unearthed in the Shang-dynasty Tomb of Fu Hao.
