Librarians and publishers of scientific journals from multiple disciplines in Uruguay created a network after the First Training Workshop for Publishers: Scientific Journals and Quality Criteria, organized by Latindex and SciELO Uruguay. Among its objectives, among other topics of common interest, are the following: to identify both problems and needs of national publishers of academic journals, and to seek advice and information on copyright in the (Creative Commons) digital environment. As a result, meetings take place, working groups are formed. Electronic courses and workshops on Journal Publishing in the OJS (Open Journal System) platform are given. During 2015 the Uruguayan Association of Academic Journals (AURA) was created, bringing together publishers from the most diverse academic disciplines who seek to improve the quality of their journals.
