Open Access Week events showcased the many ways people across the globe
informed staff, faculty, and students to the benefits of Open Access. While
there have been many advancements made here in the U.S. and the U.K.,
developing countries have utilized new publishing models to capitalize on
opening up research results and data. Latin America, in particular has seen
unprecedented surge in advocacy for public access =96 Argentina now has
legislation that requires all publicly funded research be available in open
access interoperable institutional repositories.

Using an Open Access peer-review model for their repository, the Scientific
Electronic Library Online (SciELO) has gained a positive reputation across
the globe =96now has on average over one million articles downloaded from t=
he
their site each day and their journals currently boast almost 10 million
citations.

Our guest speaker, Nicholas Cop, is the Founder and President of Nicholas
Cop Consulting, LLC and consultant on the SciELO program. SciELO began in
1998 as an e-journal initiative funded by the S=E3o Paulo Research
Foundation. SciELO publishes over 1000 journal titles mainly from Latin
America and Caribbean but also including Portugal, Spain and South Africa.

Nicholas will provide background and updates on Open Access in Latin
America and the many developments SciELO is undertaking.

To accommodate interest in every time zone, this 1-hour event will be
recorded and available on our website shortly afterwards.

Please join us for a lively and interactive discussion. SPARC=92s
Communications Manager, Andrea Higginbotham, will be moderating questions
during the webcast.
