This paper presents the relevance, scope and also the limitations of access to core marine, aquatic and fishery science journals in Uruguay. Since 2009 an important player has appeared in the field of online access to international commercial peer reviewed journals: the Timbo Portal. Timbo is a consortium of public and private organizations administrated by a government Agency, the National Agency of Research and Innovation (ANII). The importance of the IAMSLIC Resource Sharing service in providing quick and effective access to articles from core journals that could not be accessed by other means is stressed.
