Mexico’s Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) representative Ivonne Lujano Vilchis said the prevalence and impact of technology in our lives has made technological literacy a necessity for students and researchers. There are 70 million internet users in Mexico, she pointed out, 53 percent of the country’s population.

The remarks were made during Lujano Vilchis’s panel at the Third State of Mexico Book Fair (FILEM). She added that even though search engines are trusted as effective tools for research, the truth is that the data and sources they provide isn’t always the best. That’s why internet users should familiarize themselves with national and international sources and databases, she said.

To illustrate the vastness and reach of the web, Lujano Vilchis mentioned that around 150 million emails are sent every minute, as well as 20 million messages and about 2.8 million videos are watched.
