The Latin American and Caribbean Health Sciences Literature (LILACS), in the framework of its 35th anniversary, launched on October 29 an Internet Portal that will remain active and updated until October 2021, with the contribution of its cooperation network.
This Portal reflects LILACS’ uninterrupted work in providing visibility to the scientific output of Latin America and the Caribbean, through its strategy of working as a network and with the motto Solidarity is about sharing, which is expressed in the logo designed for this celebration.
The Portal is the LILACS 35-year-old hot site, developed by the Latin American and Caribbean Center for Health Sciences Information, BIREME, and is a space to record important and significant moments of LILACS’ history, to recognize all those who contributed to maintenance and sustainability, besides being the platform on which collaborators can express their results and the challenges to maintain it.
In this space on the Internet, stand out:
