First journal in Latin America to be published through Elsevier's Production &
Hosting Program

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, today announced its publishing agreement
with the National Association of Postgraduate Centers of Economics (ANPEC) in
Brazil. Starting in September 2013, Elsevier will publish EconomiA, ANPEC's
official academy journal. The journal will be published and hosted as an open
access journal on ScienceDirect , the world's largest repository of
scientific, full text information.

EconomiA is the first journal in Latin America to be published through
Elsevier's Production & Hosting (P&H) program. This publishing solution
supports society, university, academy or government owned journals by lifting
them into an international standard of publishing quality and increasing
global influence through inclusion in scholarly information tools and
resources such as ScienceDirect. These benefits are applicable whilst
editorial control of publications and ownership of the journal remains with
the society or university.

"Sponsored by the National Association of Postgraduate Centers of Economics,
EconomiA is the academy's primary journal. Its main focus is to publish sound
research irrespective of differences in paradigms," said Joaquim Pinto de
Andrade, Editor-in-Chief of EconomiA . "With Elsevier's support EconomiA will
become one of the first Brazilian journals in the field of economics with an
international focus and reach. I hope it will help to open the academy up to
the rest of the world, with a larger circulation and amelioration of its
research."

"Elsevier's Production & Hosting program is dedicated to making regional
research content accessible on a global scale. We are honored and very pleased
to add EconomiA to the program," said Bernard Aleva, Senior Vice President of
the Innovation & Publishing Development Department at Elsevier.
