Latin American triple-A journals 1: A quality roadmap from the quality indicators and journals' presence in Web of Science and Scopus

Machin-Mastromatteo, Juan D.; Tarango, Javier; Medina-Yllescas, Eduardo

The current presence of Latin American journals in Web of Science and Scopus is analyzed, as the first part of a quality roadmap intended to strengthen regional publications, especially those that have started as institutional publications. The next issue will study the quality requirements and journals’ presence in other recognized indexes and platforms such as Scimago Journal and Country Rank, the Directory of Open Access Journals, Latindex, SciELO, and RedALyC.
