Recent developments at SciELO

SciELo -- Scientific Electronic Library Online is a multinational endeavor to provide Open Access to wealth of scientific research produced in Latin America and Spain. From the SciELO Model page:
SciELO - Scientific Electronic Library Online is a model for cooperative electronic publishing of scientific journals on the Internet. Especially conceived to meet the scientific communication needs of developing countries, particularly Latin America and the Caribbean countries, it provides an efficient way to assure universal visibility and accessibility to their scientific literature, contributing to overcome the phenomena known as "lost science". In addition, the SciELO model comprises integrated procedures for the measurement of usage and impact of scientific journals.
