Saul Equihua writes [1] [es] on Infotecarios about open access [2]in México:

On Tuesday, May 20, 2014, Mexico moved ahead by adding and reforming the Legislation of Science and Technology, the General Legislation of Education and the Organic Law of National Council of Science and Technology, to promote open access.

After analyzing the legistlation, he concludes:

My wish as well as other's (most surely) is that this law won't remain paper and that it will really be a step that will allow us to improve investigation, innovation and development. May the assigned resources get to the hands of those who should get them without getting lost in their way, stuck in bureaucracy.
