Regarding the coverage of Latin American journals (SciELO) in the web of science, here are 2 interesting papers. The first one is entitled "Latin American Scientific Journals: from "Lost Science" to Open Access. http://www.mexicanistas.eu/uploads/documents/Latin%20American%20Scientific%20Journals,%20ponencia,%20Sanchez%20Pereira.pdf p://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(12)61600-6/fulltext Françoise Salager-Meyer >*** >Greetings from Vancouver > >Interestingly enough, at least from the >perspective of an earth sciences librarian, it >appears that some journals that >are in Latindex are also indexed in Web of Science and GeoRef. > >For example, > ><http://www.latindex.unam.mx/buscador/ficRev.html?folio=18159&opcion=3>http://www.latindex.unam.mx/buscador/ficRev.html?folio=18159&opcion=3 > >Knowing the coverage of GeoRef, this doesn't really surprise me. > >Kevin > > >Kevin Lindstrom >Physical Sciences and Engineering Librarian >Woodward Library >2198 Health Sciences Mall >University of British Columbia >Vancouver, B.C.
