以下展示了常向群的学术贡献以及她对从中国到全球的学术社区和人类社会的服务要点(按由近及远时间列举):

"常向群教授的《马克思主义社会学论稿》一书在当代中国社会学界较早对马克思主义社会学的基本内容进行了系统论述。......它的重新出版对于我们今天建构中国特色的社会学学科体系、话语体系和学术体系当会具有相当的推动作用。"—— 北京大学社会理论研究中心主任 谢立中教授; "常向群教授的《马克思主义社会学论稿》是社会学恢复重建后出版的第一本、也是迄今为止为数不多的马克思主义社会学研究著作,具有重大的学术价值和现实意义。该著从元理论、实质理论、核心思想等方面阐释了马克思主义社会学理论的基本内容,概述了马克思主义社会学在不同国家的发展、应用和影响,深入解析了马克思主义社会学的科学内涵和丰富内容。......今年适逢马克思诞辰200周年,新版增加了五个附录,其中包括较为全面地更新了的参考文献等,此外还增加了作者新写的“新版后记”,将该著的视角延伸到当代学术前沿,大大增加了该著的参考价值。"—— 南开大学周恩来政府管理学院副院长、马克思主义社会学研究中心主任 赵万里教授

2018 — 'How much do we trust the media? Which media do we trust? Are the media of one language or country more trustworthy than those of another? In the ‘big data’ era, how long will deferent forms of media last and how widely will they penetrate? The Record of Launch Martin Albrow's book China’s Role in a Shared Human Future: Towards Theory for Global Leadership is intended to serve as a case study on media coverage of a book launch and, more widely, as an exposition of the true nature of media coverage beyond what appears on the surface.' From 'About this book' on the back cover. 'The purpose of publishing this report ...... is to offer a contrast between the records of event (Part One) and media coverage of the event (Part Two), and to compare reactions and the impact of publication, in both Chinese and non-Chinese sources, Xi Jinping: The Governance of China Volumes I and II...... Such comparisons might be helpful for promoting Chinese and non-Chinese social scientific work on China in a global setting.' From 'Editor’s note' of the book.
2017 — ‘How is the process of globalization effecting changes in the structure of knowledge in sociology? This path-breaking volume looks at the human dimension of developments in the discipline by compiling a set of interviews that exemplify the life and work of a sociologist today. Their ideas and conceptualizations show to what extent a "paradigm shift" has taken root, answering questions such as whether sociology still remains a differentiated, relatively autonomous social science. The chosen interviewees are about equally divided according to gender and have been selected from among professional sociologists in different parts of the globe, with an emphasis on areas that are under-represented in English publications, such as East Asia, Latin America, and Africa.’ Xiangqun was marked out by the Academic Presidents of the International Sociological Association (ISA) as one of 15 sociologists in the world who ’are called upon to adapt the discipline to the upheavals of the twenty-first century’ (see Practicing Social Science: Sociologists and their Craft, by Devorah Kalekin-Fishman, Routledge, 2017).
2016 — ‘Professor Xiangqun Chang shares that conviction and has demonstrated her commitment to the cause by initiating the Global China Dialogues and bringing together the voices of the contributors in this volume of proceedings. Her innovative energy and their fresh and uninhibited engagement combine to demonstrate to the world the rich potential of Chinese perspectives on global issues juxtaposed with those of their international counterparts.’ from 'General preface' to the Global China Dialogues Proceedings series, by Professor Martin Albrow, former President of the British Sociological Association, founding editor of International Sociology. 'Congratulations on the whole event (the 3rd Global China Dialogue). All of the panels were really high-powered.' By Professor Lord Anthony Giddens, former Director of London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
2016 — '...... my congratulations to Xiangqun and all her co-workers in preparing and now publishing the new Journal of China in Comparative Perspective, which builds on my initiative at the LSE where I designed the still thriving Master’s degree on China in Comparative Perspective. The journal and the two book series are an amazing accomplishment, an entirely independent endeavour, and I hope that, given a secure base, they too will thrive.’ By Professor Stephan Feuchtwang, emeritus professor of anthropology at the London School of Economics. 'I am deeply impressed by the quality of the articles of the Journal of China in Comparative Perspective. It will be a major contribution to inform Western understanding of contemporary Chinese thought. I am certain it will be well received by academics, particularly those working in social and cultural studies. Editing such a highly intellectual journal is an immensely demanding task. You have done an excellent job.' By Professor Wolfgang Teubert, former Chair of Corpus Linguistics, University of Birmingham; founding Editor of the International Journal of Corpus Linguistics.

2015 — In China’s future social development, there is likely to be an interest in “society building” with interactions between top-down and bottom-up approaches, along with a deepened level of social reform and the construction of a harmonious or “symbiotic” society. This represents one of China’s social development models, and is reflected in the Communist Party of China (CPC) and state policy. The term “society building” was proposed by Chinese thinkers nearly one century ago, and has been used by Chinese sociologists to study Chinese society since the 1930s. In the 21st century, “society building” has been approached as an interdisciplinary concept by Chinese social scientists. The main concern of China for its future social development is to enhance its people’s wellbeing and encourage them to build Chinese society in innovative and creative ways. From 'About this book' on the back cover. 'The concept “Society building”, derived from extensive research of Chinese society by Chinese social scientists over several generations, should be a shared resource of human knowledge. This academic product is made in UK, which signified the academic exchanges between China and the world entered into a new era'. By Professor Zheng Hangsheng (1936—2014), former vice-President of Renmin University of China; Honorary President of the Chinese Sociological Association (CSA), China. 

2014 — ’Xiangqun Chang has assembled an excellent team of contributors to discuss the idea of "society building" in China. The term was coined by Sun Yat-Sen in 1917, but it could not be more contemporary – as China wrestles to reconcile the demands of population, resources, democracy and social welfare. This book gives us considerable insights into the alternative visions of social development now being discussed in China.’ By Professor Robin Cohen, author of Global Sociology, Emeritus Professor of Development Studies and Former Director of the International Migration Institute, University of Oxford. 'Drawing on the expertise and insights of scholars from eight countries, this book illuminates the meaning of the ‘China model’ and the implications for China’s societal development and political system. The book tackles this significant issue from a variety of interesting angles. It is well worth reading, especially in light of China’s importance in the world'. By Professor Jonathan Unger, Professor of Political & Social Change Department, founding Editor of The China Journal, Australian National University, Australia.
2014 — Xiangqun received a Mulan Award for her Contribution to Education (the first such award in education) from the UK-based Mulan Foundation Network. It was presented by Professor Danny Quah, former head of LSE Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre. 2013 — In addition to her academic work, Xiangqun acted in the role of intellectual entrepreneur from 2013 when she founded Global China Institute (formerly CCPN Global), with a dual mission: 75% is an academic mission to promote the study of China in comparative perspective in all aspects, and 25% is a social mission, in line with the Charity Commission’s requirements including to produce both global public goods and global public good through knowledge transfer, consultancy and publications. Global China Institute aspires to build a bridge between China and the rest of world, the Chinese and the non-Chinese, to participate in the building and governance of a global society. 
2010 — 'Chang Xiangqun has provided a wonderful in depth analysis of rural central Chinese social relationships. Building upon the pioneering work of Fei Xiaotong, her study of Kaixiangong retains a strong historical feel as it probes matters of the human heart. Her investigation of Chinese emotional and ethical considerations provides a rich informed and vibrant chronicle ordinary village life. An excellent ethnographic account. This is how anthropology should be.' By Professor William Jankowiak, Department of Anthropology, University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). 'It is the most ethnographic report on such social phenomenon in today's PRC society after reforms. It uses the everyday life phrase of "li shang wang lai" (reciprocity) to depict and to develop the prevalence and importance of personalized social relations in China. It both makes contributions on localisation of anthropological theory and brings local knowledge alive.' By Professor Hsin-Huang Michael Hsiao, Director of Institute of Sociology, Academia Sinica.

2009 — ‘Xiangqun's major book Guanxi or Li shang wanglai? Guanxi or Li shang wanglai? is the first Chinese scholarly book in nearly 100 years to systematically challenge important Western social anthropological and sociological theories on reciprocity and social exchange.' By Professor Deng Zhenglai (1956-2013), founding Dean of National Institute of Advanced Studies in Social Sciences at Fudan University; Editor of Chinese Social Science Quarterly (Chinese); Editor of Fudan Journal of the Humanities and Social Sciences (English), the only Chinese scholar whose work was cited across six high-ranking social scientific disciplines, e.g. No. 1 in Law, No. 2 in the Political Sciences and No. 5 in Sociology, according to a report on the academic influence of research achievements in humanities and social sciences in China (in Chinese, China Social Science Publishing House, 2007).
2010 — Xiangqun’s thorough fieldwork in 1996 directly influenced the renowned Chinese sociologist and anthropologist Professor Fei Xiaotong’s conclusion that the historical mission of the collective economy based “Southern Jiangsu Model” had come to an end. A few months later, the transformation of collective enterprises into private enterprises was completed smoothly.— Social Changes in Kaixiangong Village (in Chinese), by Zhu Yunyun and Yao Fukun, Shanghai People’s Publishing House, 2010.

知识转化

创设了“全球中国智库(Global China Thinktank)“,这是一个通过以中国和华人以及与其他国家和地区做比较研究的知识资源为基础的社会顾问(social consultancy)及活动,来参与型塑全球社会的民间智库。“全球中国智库”最初来自于全球中国比较研究会的“知识转化”和“公共参与”两部分内容。既包括把某种特定的知识转化到某一个具体的领域,“全球中国智库”更强调是把中国的社科和人文知识转化到全球社会来,即中国和华人视野的“知识的全球转化”,或曰“知识全球化”。 虽然“全球中华视野” 是从全球中国比较研究会(一个提倡从比较视角进行中国研究的全球性学术团体​​)培育出来的,但“全球中国智库”更着重于来自中国和华人视野的知识,而不仅仅是比较的视野。全球中国智库的使命是打造中国和华人参与知识全球化的世界公共平台,型塑全球共生社会。点击英文详细的 知识转化和公共参与
