EDITORIAL

An editorial anomaly

  • Miguel Ángel Blesa Science Reviews from the end of the world

Abstract

Most of the science in the Latin-American region is funded with public money, and the institutions that provide the money have little or no record of the resulting published material. In a time when the open access initiative is gaining momentum and is advocated by financing institutions, the Argentine Association for the Progress of Science (AAPC) evaluated that launching a new publication was warranted, with distinctive features that make it an editorial anomaly.
