Limited publication studies

Limited publication studies (LPS) make up a series of reports which GCiS publishes on a limited basis, based on data findings uncovered by the company's non-commissioned research department. We sell these to multiple customers; however, the information remains confidential and the reports never go on general release, hence the term "limited publication".

GCiS uses advanced research methods to ensure international quality standards. This includes a combination of engineering expertise, rigorous definitions and transparent calculations, as ensured by GCiS's unique Process Control System; a set of internal deliverables which helps to maintain a consistent, high quality data stream. The Process Control System is inspired by quality control used in the software industry and is has been adapted to suit research in China.
