Dissemination and Visibility of Paraguayan Science

RI-CONACYT has all the interoperability, metadata and cataloging standards required to guarantee the dissemination and visibility of Paraguayan science.

The repository uses the OAI-PMH interoperability protocol, based on the Dublin Core metadata schema, as a standard to ensure the exchange and dissemination of the metadata of its content, which places Paraguayan scientific production within the reach of the most important specialized search engines and information harvesters, ensuring maximum visibility so that scientists from all over the world can access Paraguayan scientific publications.

CONACYT recommends beneficiary researchers, technologists and science, technology and innovation personnel to use the Institutional Repository for the storage, preservation and dissemination of their technical and scientific production.
