As a repository for open access journals throughout Latin America and around the world, the Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) database is an excellent research resource. SciELO seeks "to contribute to the development of scientific research by improving and
expanding the means, infrastructures and communication capacities ... published in open access and progressively aligned with the communication practices of open science." The database currently includes journals from more than a dozen countries, with a few more in development. Readers can browse collections by country or journal (via the home page), click "Advanced Search" to apply filters (such as language, date, or topic), or conduct an open search via the query bar. For example, a search for "computer science" reveals more than 300 results from nearly every country included in the repository. Other journal subjects include agriculture, biology, engineering, and health. SciELO maintains its open access database under a Creative Commons license. Based in Brazil, the database is available in English, Portuguese, and Spanish.
