If they want to officially publish this sort of manuscript, they must undergo examination and approval by the Central Historical Document Research Centre, and report to the Administration of Press and Publications for filing, the People’s Press and the Central Historical Documents Press will publish them according to the determined scope of the division of work.

The People’s Press or the Central Historical Document Press is responsible for publishing this sort of books according to the scope of the division of work, and strictly guarantees quality.

1990年8月21日  中宣发文[1990]9号

一九八二年七月,中央批转了中央宣传部、中央文献研究室《关于毛、周、刘、朱和现任中央常委著作的出版、发表及审核办法的请示报告》,即中发[1982]33号文件。几年来,这一文件得到了比较认真的贯彻执行。但最近一段时间内,有的地方和出版社也出现了执行不严的情况,有的专题文集内容重复又出版过多。为了从政治上慎重考虑,维护出版这类著作的严肃性,保证出版的质量,根据中央最近指示精神,除重申认真执行中发[1982]33号文件的规定外,特再作以下补充规定:

一、毛、周、刘、朱、任、邓、陈等老一辈革命家和现任中央常委未发表过的历史文稿(包括文章、讲话、批示、电文、书信、诗词),根据需要,由中央文献研究室或中央指定的其他单位负责校订或整理,其中重要的文稿报中央审定,健在的老一辈革命家和现任中央常委的文稿经本人审定后,公开或内部发表。中央其他单位和省、自治区、直辖市一级单位如要发表这类文稿,需送中央文献研究室审核。如要正式出版这类文稿,需经中央文献研究室审批,并报新闻出版署备案,由人民出版社和中央文献出版社按既定的分工范围出版。
