The Brontë sisters—Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë—are outstanding writers in the history of English literature, known both as a collective group and as individual luminaries. Although Brontë research in China has made some progress, there are still many problems and challenges in the current publication of journals. Based on quantitative statistics and analysis of Brontë research in CNKI's core journals over the past 30 years (1994-2023), this article summarizes the current status of research on the three Brontë sisters in China to provide a new reference point for future research and gradually build a unique research system in China.
