Open Access: SciELO Launches New Operation Interface For Its Collections
In November 2017, the SciELO Program launched the new online interface for the operation of the national and thematic collections of the SciELO Network, starting with the Public Health thematic collection. As it is approved according to efficiency and quality indicators, new collections will start using it throughout 2018. The expectation is that in 2019 all SciELO Network collections will be operating with the new interface, which will set up a new stage in the history of the program.
The interface operates the classic structure of SciELO hierarchical instances: the first level is the network of national and thematic collections, the second are the journal collections, the third are the journals and the fourth are the articles. The implementation began with the Public Health collection that holds the main components and attributes present in the different network collections, besides the continuous and multilingual publication models. The interface of the network collection portal will be implemented in 2018.
