The Latin American Periodicals Tables of Contents (LAPTOC) provides access to tables of contents of journals published in Latin America and the Caribbean. LAPTOC includes 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. Most of the articles indexed in LAPTOC were published between 1994 and 2009.
