Open Access Journals

While countries in the Global North have largely bought into commercial systems, Latin America has until recently maintained a distinct non-commercial Open Access infrastructure where scientific publication is handled by academic institutions. Scholarly communication – the production, publication, distribution, and consumption of research literature – has therefore operated without charges, whether for reading or publishing, and has been financed principally via public funds destined for education and research, mainly through academic institutions.

Within this ecosystem, a number of non-commercial platforms have emerged. These platforms have provided software applications, interoperability, visibility, and discoverability for Latin America’s research output.
