SciELO Announces the Availability, Indexing and Publishing of Academic*
*eBooks from Brazil*
SÃO PAULO, March 2013 - SciELO, a major indexer and publisher of Open 
Access online journals,
announces SciELO Books (http://books.scielo.org/en), a collection of 
quality peer-reviewed Open Access
and commercial ebooks in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Public 
Health from selected university
presses and other academic publishers in Brazil. The scope of the 
collection will progressively broaden
as university presses and academic publishers from other countries in 
Latin America and the Caribbean

Currently there are over 300 ebooks available for download and this 
number is expected to grow by more
than 500 titles per year. SciELO believes in open standards and that 
users should be free to read on any
device, so the ebooks are being made available in ePub and PDF formats 
with the option to download the
whole ebook or just individual PDF chapters.

This new ebook operation was launched in March 2012 with three founding 
members - the presses of the
University of the State of São Paulo (UNESP), the Federal University of 
Bahia (EDUFBA) and Fiocruz in
Brazil. The addition of the presses of the State University of Paraíba 
(EDUEPB), the State University of
Londrina (EDUEL) and the Federal University of São Carlos (EDUFSCar) has 
brought the total to six
presses. New presses are continuously being added to the SciELO Books 

SciELO is partnering with major indexing services and ebook retailers to 
broaden availability of the
SciELO content to the global community.
