Abstract

According to various authoritative sources, the English word !§journal!‥ was first used in the 16th century, but the existence of the journal in its original meaning as a daily record can be traced back to Acta Diurna (Daily Events) in ancient Roman cities as early as 59 B.C. This article documents the first appearance of Chinese daily records that were much earlier than 59 B.C.
