 SciELO   The Scientific Electronic Library Online – SciELO Spain is an electronic virtual library covering a collection of Spanish health scientific journals selected following preestablished quality criteria.

The library is an integral part of a project being developed by BIREME (the Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information), in partnership with FAPESP (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo). In Spain, the SciELO project is result of the collaboration between OPS/OMS and Carlos III Health Institute ISCIII and it is been developed by the National Library of Health Sciences.

The main aim of the SciELO project is to develop a common methodology for the preparation, storage, dissemination and evaluation of Spanish scientific literature in electronic format.

 about this site   

The objective of the site is to implement an electronic virtual library, providing full access to a collection of serial titles, as well as to the full text of articles. The access to both serial titles and articles is available via indexes and search forms.

SciELO Spain is an integral part of the FAPESP-BIREME Project and it is an application of the methodology being developed by the project, particularly the Internet interface module.

The site is updated periodically in both form and content.


SciELO interface provides access to its serials collection via an alphabetic list of titles or a subject list or a search form by word of serial titles, publisher names, city of publication and subject.

The interface also provides access to the full text of articles via author index or subject index, or by a search form on article elements such as author names, words from title, subject, words from the full text and publication year.

In addition to serials and articles modules, SciELO interface provides access to statistics module, with access to information about site usage and journal citation (bibliometric calculations).
