SciELO is a cooperative decentralized platform for electronic publishing of scientific journals, with national focal points in 15 countries. From Latin America and the Caribbean, the following countries, with active national focal points, have journal collections in SciELO: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Scielo provides open access to more than 750 journals from the region, allowing searches in article and journal level, by subject or country, to view and download abstract, full-text, and citation information.
SciELO started in Brazil in 1997 as a partnership among FAPESP – the State of São Paulo Science Foundation- and BIREME -the Latin America and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information), a center of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO/WHO)-. Since 2002 SciELO also receives support from CNPq -Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico. SciELO demonstrates the importance of government funding to improve visibility, access and impact of science in developing countries.
