The Congress of Argentina recently passed a landmark law making publicly
funded science and technology research publications free and open access.

On 13 November, the Argentinian Congress passed a law (No. 26.899, Creating
Institutional Open Access Digital Repositories, Owned or Shared)
establishing that all institutions belonging to the National Science and
Technology System (SNCYT, according to its acronym in Spanish) that receive
public funds (partly or entirely) shall create free and open access
institutional digital repositories where all the scientific and
technological publications (which includes journal articles, technical and
scientific papers, theses, etc.) and research data must be available.
