It also includes journals published by international institutions with Ibero-American member countries such as the Organization of the American States (OAS), Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI), or the Pan-American Institute of Geography and History (PAIGH), among others. Under the name of "Latin Americanists" it also includes those journals with content on the region but published in non Ibero-American countries.
