DUARTE CABALLERO, Alicia  and  DUARTE MASI, Sergio. The Presence of Paraguayan Scientific Journals in Online Digital Databases. Inf. cult. soc. [online]. 2014, n.31, pp.121-131. ISSN 1851-1740.

The availability of scientific journals through online databases or indexing services facilitating access to scientific production makes both the producer of the information and the scientific production of a country or thematic area visible. This paper aims to determine the presence of scientific journals of Paraguay present in online databases with national and Latinamerican coverage and describes their main characteristics. The study was observational, descriptive and transversal, carried out during the month of September 2013. The following portals were consulted: Latindex Directory, Latindex Catalog, Electronic Links Latindex, SciELO Paraguay, DIALNET, DOAJ, CLACSO, LILACS, E-magazine and Redalyc. In general, the presence of scientific journals of Paraguay in online databases is scarce, most of them are print versions, issued twice a year and by universities, they were mostly journals in the health area. Further studies are considered necessary to know the reason that magazines fail to be visible and establish national strategies for scientific journals to increase their visibility in the country.
