About - LAPTOC

The Latin American Periodicals Tables of Contents database, or LAPTOC, provides open electronic access to the tables of contents of journals published in Latin America and the Caribbean between the years 1994 and 2009. LAPTOC consists of 975 academic and research journals published in 29 countries in the region, including bibliographic references to more than 340,000 articles in the area's major languages. Database searches can be made by journal title, keywords in author and article titles, and country of publication. The user can save citations, create bibliographies, and e-mail or download results of searches.

The original intention of the project was to provide awareness of Latin American journals not widely held in the United States. Many libraries in the US purchased these journals and contributed the tables of contents to help build the database. Contributing libraries and institutions in the US and Latin America included:
