IntechOpen Regional Research Spotlight Series - Mexico
29th April 2015
Mexico's publishing history has registered a steady growth and in recent years the expansion of technologies has allowed many more scientists access to information, as well as encouraging, encouraging their participation and collaboration in international scientific networks.
To ensure that local scientists' academic impact be felt both regionally and globally and its presence is substantial in quality, size, and visibility, IntechOpen has been working for years in establishing collaborations with Mexico's scientific community concerning their research output, publishing and the dissemination of Science, Technology and Medicine books.
Mexico's authors/editors and IntechOpen
Up until today, IntechOpen has collaborated with 2,120 authors and book editors from Mexico and among the universities and institutions IntechOpen has worked with, we highlight Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México and Instituto and Politécnico Nacional and Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro.
Further successful collaborations
In 2012, IntechOpen donated a number of its books in the field of Engineering and Technology to the central library of the Autonomous University of Baja California. One collection was donated to the Campus Mexicali Central Library, another one stayed at the Institute of Engineering and a further one was displayed in different fairs around the country.
The prestigious Universidad Autonoma da Baja California's International Book Fair was the first event to present IntechOpen's collection on this specific subject in Mexico.
Representation in the Region
Following the newly established collaboration with Librosbooks in 2014, IntechOpen exhibited its Book Catalog at the Guadalajara International Book Fair 2014
Such event marked further the importance of creating fruitful networks and collaborations with the local scientific community, providing them with tools to access the latest science output from their international peers, as well as a platform to publish their own research findings hence increasing the visibility and reach of our authors from Central Latin America.
Throughout 2015 IntechOpen and Librosbooks will be participating to the following local book fairs:
