Full-text content from many Latin America scientific publications

An impressive portal managed by the and  Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Mexico providing full-text content from a variety of scientific publications in Latin America countries. Organized in two main areas (Social and Natural Sciences) and many specialised sub-sections, Redalyc gathers journals published in more than 15 countries, with  over 758 riviste scientifiche; 16,845 journals and 208,400 articles available in pdf format, along with abstracts, reference info and other metadata. Similarly to parallel projects such as Latindex, this portal fully embraces the Open Access policy and its material is released under a Creative Commons license, with free download. Along with a keyword search on each page, users can browse the catalogue by title, author, country or subject and they also submit original papers in .doc, .rtf or .odt formats, to be included in a specific journal. The outline is essentially text-based and lacking many usability functions, but it’s easy to navigate and provides small banners and search windows (with related html code)  to be pasted on anybody’s website as a promotional tool. They now have a Twitter account and a Facebook page both providing daily updates, as well as the mobile application.
