about this site
The SciELO library is an integral part of a project being developed by FAPESP (the Research Support Foundation of the State of São Paulo), in partnership with BIREME (the Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information). Since 2002, the Project is also supported by CNPq (the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development, which is part of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation in Brazil).
The SciELO Priority lines of action 2019-2023 as well as the SciELO Network criteria are being introduced into the SciELO SA collection systematically.
SciELO collections contribute to the development of the national capacities in scientific editing and publishing to be on par with the international state of the art. The project aims to make visible the science of developing countries that the mainstream does not provide for this scientific communication.
The coordinating centres all follow the same methodology and technology developed and maintained under the leadership of SciELO Brazil. Each collection has its own web portal with multilingual interfaces in English, Portuguese and Spanish. The interfaces include a bibliometric module that provides usage statistics based on article downloads and impact indicators based on citations. This allows for the following up of the performance of the collections and the individual journals, and contributes to the enhancement of the evaluation of scientific production.
The SciELO Portal provides a single point of access to the SciELO Network of collections with searching, dissemination and bibliometric services. The SciELO Open Access collections represent an important global public good, contributing to the advancement of national programs and priorities on scientific research and communication.
South Africa joined the SciELO Program in 2009. In 2013 SciELO SA became an independent national collection within the SciELO Network.
Journals are considered for inclusion in SciELO SA when they have received a favourable evaluation from ASSAf’s journal quality peer-review panel and adhere to the SciELO SA-specific criteria for acceptance. or further information or to submit a journal for consideration, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org .
The interface also provides access to the full text of articles via author index or subject index, or by a search form on article elements such as author names, words from title, subject, words from the full text and publication year.
