This is our first post in the New Year so we wish all a very happy new year. New Year is supposed to bring hope but hope is something that we always harbor. So we wish you resilience and success in your lives. Open Access in Latin America mandates a brief discussion of the publications of the Economic Commission for Latin America (ECLA). Its publications repository provides access to hundreds of OA publications in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
As shown below, the thematic selections now include ECLAC publications on COVID-19.
ECLAC’s website also offers access to statistical databases related to Latin America.
We leave you with good wishes and invite you to explore the ECLAC Open Access this year. Open Access Matters!
