Although Latin America is well versed in the concept of Open Access, the Open Science movement as a whole has not enjoyed the same level of development in the area. The three countries that have legislated on open access to scientific information (Peru, Argentina, and Mexico) are beginning to develop regulations regarding the opening of data or the development of institutional repositories (which are linked with the so-called Green Open Access route). However, that is not to say that countries which have not legislated about Open Access may not have progressed even a little farther down the road to Open Science, as is the case in Brazil.
