In 2015, the Innovation Project Team on the Rule of Law Index of Institute of Law of Chinese Academy of Social Sciences optimized and modified the indicator system for China Maritime Judicial Transparency Index Evaluation and made the third evaluation on judicial openness of ten maritime courts. The results indicate steady improvement, especially in terms of informatization application, diverse means of disclosure and international standardization. To stand as an international maritime judicial center with wide influence, China needs to further intensify its judicial openness and build a uniform disclosure platform for annual maritime trial white papers, typical cases and representative documents.
