The Scientific Electronic Library Online – SciELO is an electronic library covering a selected collection of Brazilian scientific journals.
The library is an integral part of a project being developed by FAPESP – Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo, in partnership with BIREME – the Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information. Since 2002, the Project is also supported by CNPq – Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico.
The Project envisages the development of a common methodology for the preparation, storage, dissemination and evaluation of scientific literature in electronic format.
As the project develops, new journal titles are being added in the library collection.
