ASSAf News

The SciELO Network  is a collection of prestigious open access scholarly journals. The project originated in Brazil 21 years ago and now includes a total of 15 national collections, mostly from South America, and also from Spain, Portugal, and South Africa (since 2009). 

SciELO SA is managed by ASSAf, funded by the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI), and endorsed for accreditation purposes by the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). Currently SciELO SA hosts 79 prestigious South African open access journals in its collection with more titles being added. The Network regularly publishes a SciELO Blog, SciELO in Perspective

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 the blog has included summaries of articles and texts with the topic. Below is a list of brief summaries of SciELO Network articles and texts on the topic (the keywords are indicated in bold).
