- 台研院－已发表论文 
日据时期长期在日人报刊任职的魏清德前往闽粤、日本、"满鲜"等地旅行的主要目的是各地文明状态的观察和思考,而非一般的观景揽胜。旅行闽粤时,他发现该地也开启了现代化进程,由此可证明所谓殖民统治带给殖民地现代化的说法并不真确。在日本,他看到现代化盛景下其实也有贫富悬隔、欠缺公平等弊端;到了战争后期,他益发感受到日本穷兵黩武的错误,修正了对日、中两国国民性优劣的认知,试图用汉学汉文来维系汉民族命脉于不坠,在其亲日的外表下,仍透露出未曾泯灭的汉民族意识和中华文化情怀。Wei Qingde with a years-long job at the Japanese newspaper during the Japanese Occupation went to Fujian,Guangdong,Japan,Manchuria,Korea and other areas,whose major purpose was not to visit the places of interest but to observe and reflect on the civilization situation around East Asia. Wei Qingde found that modernization process originated from Fujian and Guangdong,from which he drew a conclusion that the saying of colonial rule bringing modernization to colonies is wrong. In Japan,Wei Qingde observed that a lot of malpractices including disparity of wealth and lack of fair existing in contrast to the spectacular of modernization. By the late stage of the war between Japan and China,he increasingly realized the Japanese militaristic error and amended the cognition of the National Character of Japan and China National Character. He tried to maintain the lifeblood of the Han nationality by promoting Han language and sinology,whose Han national consciousness and Chinese culture feelings were revealed in his pro-Japanese appearance.
