Agreement to build better scientific journals in Colombia: The San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment
AbstractColombian journals need to be characterized as having an editorial guideline oriented towards achieving international standards and have the best conditions to be accepted in databases, repositories, and bibliometric indices. Deployment of proposals should encompass aspects of policy research, training and technology necessary to induce a significant change in the diffusion and dissemination of knowledge. Open access principles, the use of open source, protection of intellectual property and recognition of the formation of the editor must be the basis of a policy of national publications.
