The international important academic journals such as Nature and Science have a tradition of publishing articles to expose academic misconduct in various countries, and they have been keeping a close eye on the dynamics of academic norms in China as well. Their reports or comments have not only attracted academic attention internationally, but have also made contribution to the improvement of their own influence. In contrast, China, as a source of relevant information, has largely been absent from the first reports or comments on relevant phenomena and developments in its academic journals. Therefore, it has always been in the passive state of being exposed and criticized. This study aims to explore the value and significance of international communication data on the dynamics of Chinese academic norms. Investigations are made to understand the methods and strategies employed by the top international journals for enhancing their influence through category analyses of data visualization according to text type, publication year, author's nationality and their institution, and through data collection of relevant articles' citation information on Web of Science and Scopus. At the same time, China's home-made academic journals' relevant data are analyzed on the two academic platforms and compared with their citation performance on CNKI and WanFang Data. The paper finally proposes that Chinese academic journals should fully understand that scientific misconduct is a worldwide challenge and should rationally face up to those problems occurred in our country. They can, under the guidance of a more international concept, learn from the practice of Science and Nature in timely publishing reports on the trends of China's academic norms to make effective use of resource advantages and adopt flexible communication modules such as setting up targeted columns to show their ability and confidence in objective self-evaluation and self-correction of academic misconduct, and at the same time, to attract attention and improve Chinese journals' international visibility and influence.
