Improved open access journal platform http://www.scielo.org.za/<http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.scielo.org.za%2F&h=2AQEU2fOVAQGQ7Fh7MjUdTCISHwLi2h11aY6aPex3NiqjbA&s=1> will be launched by South Africa’s Minister of Science and Technology Derek Hanekom on 22 July. "Susan Veldsman, director of the scholarly publishing unit at ASSAf, told University World News that the SciELO-SA collection started as a pilot in order to demonstrate its value and impact to the research community, evolving to an ‘in development’ status. Over the past four years SciELO-SA had achieved the ‘mandatory quality criteria’ – conditions a journal has to comply with in order to be published on the platform – Veldsman explained. The intention, said Veldsman, was for SciELO-SA to “gradually grow into a platform for quality African journals”, adding that other journals from Africa that complied with the evaluation criteria could be hosted by the platform."
