The modern Chinese sci-tech societies have been developing for a hundred years and becoming a magnificent mosaic of the world sci-tech societies development since the rise of societies in China in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, especially the May 4th Movement. At the time of celebrating the 100 years anniversary of the May 4th Movement, it is crucial to implement a systematical review on the development of sci-tech societies, and analyze the role of sci-tech societies for enlightening scientific culture, improving science and technology development and promoting economy construction. Such a research could be not only of theoretical significance but also of practical value to explore the development road in the new era for Chinese sci-tech societies.
