Regional content with international influence

Go to product Contact us

The SciELO Citation Index™ helps researchers make connections to the broader research landscape, for a more complete global picture, by discovering new insights from research in regional journals in Latin America, Spain, Portugal, the Caribbean and South Africa​.

SciELO (Scientific Electronic Library Online) is a program of the Sao Paulo Research Foundation for the cooperative publishing of open access journals on the internet. It is supported by the National Council of Scientific and Technological Development and is a partnership with the Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information.

When connected to the multidisciplinary citations on the Web of Science™ platform, the SciELO Citation Index becomes so much more. Nearly every discovery is influenced by earlier research, both in its subject area and in related fields, and a publication can have significant influence and impact on other research after is has been published. No other platform has a full citation network to accurately and confidently connect you to the highest quality multidisciplinary research.
