HAPI+SciELO Launches

July 20, 2021 -- The HAPI+SciELO project went live on the HAPI site in July 2021. The project partners aim to promote greater accessibility of Mexican scholarship via inclusion of select journal records from the SciELO-México platform in the HAPI index. This collaboration pairs one of the most well-established and high profile online Latin American Studies resources published in the Global North with the Mexican national network member of SciELO, one of the most influential and impactful Open Access (OA) organizations and journal platforms in the Global South. Including selected SciELO-México records in HAPI immediately adds value to HAPI as a research resource by increasing searchable content while simultaneously increasing the potential dissemination of Mexican scholarship to audiences otherwise unfamiliar with this OA platform.

SciELO-México records are fully integrated into the HAPI search; searches in the keyword search box and from the Advanced Search page will automatically include SciELO content among the results. While the SciELO-México records will not include HAPI subject headings, the records do include article titles, authors, abstracts, and keywords supplied by SciELO-México. These records are identifiable by the small orange and red "H+S" and "HAPI+SciELO-México" graphics appearing in the article details.

Additional details are available on the HAPI Help pages.

This project was partially funded by a Seminar on the Acquisition of Latin American Library Materials (SALALM) Award for Institutional Collaborative Initiatives.
