English abstract

Latin America is a region in which two thirds of the investment in research and development are funded by State resources. It can be foreseen that in the near future governments in the region will encourage and promote, or require by law or mandates, that scientific output from the region become visible and accessible in open access repositories and portals. This paper presents the results of a survey to identify the institutions of the region with the largest volume of scientific output and most exposure of their output on the Web, in order to help make those institutions visible to national, regional and international organizations involved in open access strategies and programs in Latin America and the Caribbean. The results show a leading position by universities from Brazil; a strong presence of universities from Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Venezuela, and some presence of universities from Ecuador, Peru, Costa Rica, Cuba, Puerto Rico and Uruguay

L'Amérique latine est une région où les deux tiers des investissements dans la recherche sont financés par des ressources d'État. Il peut être prévu que, dans un futur proche, les gouvernements de la région encourageront et favoriseront, ou exigeront par la loi ou des mandats, que la production scientifique de la région devienne visible et accessible dans des répositoires de libre accès. Cet article présente les résultats d'une enquête visant à identifier quelles sont les institutions de la région avec le plus de production scientifique et exposition de cette production dans le Web, avec le but de rendre ces institutions visibles pour les organismes nationaux, régionaux et internationaux impliqués dans les stratégies et programmes d´accées libre en Amérique latine et les Caraïbes. Les résultats montrent une position de leadership des universités du Brésil; forte présence des universités du Mexique, Colombie, Argentine, Chili et Venezuela, et une certaine présence d'universités de l'Équateur, Pérou, Costa Rica, Cuba, uerto Rico et Uruguay
