“How Latin American Has Been (Quietly) Revolutionizing Open Research” highlighted longstanding initiatives in promoting open access throughout Latin America, including the role of the SciELO program (Scientific Electronic Library Online) in the region. As an open access program, journals from a network of 16 countries have been made open access since the program’s initial founding in 1997. Speakers Alex Mendonca, Alice Meadows, and Ana Heredia discussed the transition from open access to open science, and how open access publishing is important to connecting researchers and advancing the research done in the region."
