1 This study is part of a research which aims to investigate to what extent and how open science (OS) values and practices have influenced open access (OA) journals publishers. It focuses on Latin American and the Caribbean countries (LA&C), considering that this region has adopted OA as the main scholarly publishing model since the late 1990s due the fact that their scientific research and scholarly communication infrastructures are mainly publicly funded.
2 For this study, we selected a set of OS values and practices based on a previous work on scientific journals (Appel, Albagli & Maciel, 2017), as well as on an update of the literature review. They include the adoption of: alternative metrics for measuring journals’ influence and diffusion, open peer-review, open research data, Creative Commons licenses, articles’ full-text in machine-readable formats, and emerging OA business models. Considering this scenario, this research aims to contribute to answer the following question: to what extent are these practices being adopted by LA&C journals?..."
