Embora a América Latina tenha sido reconhecida por sua adoção precoce e entusiástica da publicação de acesso aberto, talvez você não saiba que a região também adotou com sucesso a pesquisa aberta de maneira mais ampla. Apoiados por políticas e programas governamentais progressivos que incentivam a colaboração aberta em projetos de pesquisa, a divulgação aberta de resultados e a infraestrutura aberta de informações, países como Brasil e Peru estão liderando o caminho para revolucionar a maneira como a pesquisa é realizada e compartilhada.
