We invite you to check the result of a large international collaboration effort to examine the inequality regarding access to ophthalmology research around the world, published  in PeerJ.com


Abstract: The problem of access to medical information, particularly in low-income countries, has been under discussion for many years. Although a number of developments have occurred in the last decade (e.g., the open access (OA) movement and the website Sci-Hub), everyone agrees that these difficulties still persist very widely, mainly due to the fact that paywalls still limit access to approximately 75% of scholarly documents. In this study, we compare the accessibility of recent full text articles in the field of ophthalmology in 27 established institutions located worldwide.

Developing Latin America 5th anniversary

I wanted to share this with you in a special post. In 2015 we had the desire of making Latin America’s issues more present in one of the most important and long-lasting international Library and Information Science journals: Information Development. This regular series, supported by its editor and colleagues in the editorial board just turned five years with its 24th article, published yesterday. I want to thank all readers and my coauthors (alphabetical): Dominique BabiniMtro CortésRene-Manuel DelgadoIram EvangelistaThelma GarcíaFidel Gonzalez-QuiñonesRenny GrandaJesus LauBasilio A. Martínez-VillaEduardo Medina YllescasErbey Mendoza NegreteSaul M EquihuaMaria PintoMarie Romero Waldon, José R. Romo, Gloria Ruiz, Javier TarangoMyrna Li & Alejandro Uribe Tirado. Special thanks to IDV’s editor Stephen Parker, as well as Paul Sturges and Ian Johnson who supported this idea from the start. Cheers to all of you!
