AbstractAccess to scientific information in the world has traditionally been exclusive to selected groups, including professors, researchers, and students in higher education. In Latin America, the situation has had a few other variables: such as the cost of subscriptions and the lack of Spanish content in scientific journals. Fortunately current advancements in Information Technology and Communication are positively changing the way digital information is disseminated in the world. For the access to scientific information, the emergence of the Open Access (OA) model is enabling positive changes in the creation and dissemination of scientific information. This article presents the results of an analysis of the current situation and the expectations that the OA movement can mean for the Latin America countries.
