Changes to organization over time

SciELO’s regular operation was launched in Brazil in 1997 after a one-year pilot project partnered by FAPESP and the Latin American and Caribbean Center in Health Sciences Information (BIREME). In 2010 the decision was made to rewrite the original technical platform which led to the creation of the SciELO Manager and Open Public Access Catalog technologies.
