Fernando Ariel López writes [1] [es] for Infotecarios about Law 26899: Creating Digital Institutional Repositories of Open, Owned, or Shared Access [2] [es], also known as the Open Access Law [3], approved in Argentina in November 2013, after a long process initiated in 2009. 

The scientific-technological production resulting from the work, training, and/or projects funded wholly or partially by the public funds from its researchers, technologists, faculty, post-doctoral fellows, and masters and doctoral students should be shared in free and open access.

Later, Fernando quotes Jorge Atrio from the REDES Center:

Some big publishers might perceive the initiative as a threat to their interests, but progress on free access to scientific information should generate a consensus and different types of institutional re-engineering.

Finally he includes an analysis of how true to “open access” the law is: 

According to the analysis [5] [es] and variables that the Board and policy estimators are considering in favor of open access to the MELIBEA scientific production, the Open Access law in Argentina is 84.47% OA.

Other articles by Fernando Ariel López in Infotecarios that make a “brief” introduction to the open access to knowledge movement:
Una guerra de ciencia ¿ficción?: monopolios editoriales vs. acceso abierto [6] [es]
Un Bien Público sin precedente = vieja tradición y nueva tecnología [7] [es]
Verde, que te quiero verde… acceso abierto [8] [es] 

The outlined post participated in the first [9][es] #LunesDeBlogsGV [Monday of blogs on GV] on May 5, 2014.
