EPI journal - CfP on Information visualization (May 2014) and Almetrics (July 2014)

I inform you that the Spanish journal "El profesional de la información" (EPI) has changed its policy, removing its restrictions on languages: now it accepts articles also in English, French and Portuguese.

EPI is a bimonthly, print + online, peer reviewed journal, indexed by the main databases:
WoS-SSCI (2012 IF = 0,439), Scopus (SJR 2012 = 0,279), Inspec, Lista, Lisa, Isoc/Csic, Francis, Pascal, Economía y negocios, Dialnet, Academic Search, etc. Accredited by French Hceres (former Aeres), and ranked first on the Spanish LIS journals list of EC3 Metrics (University of Granada):

Next central themes
Please note that we try to concentrate some topics in specific issues, but we accept articles on any subject along all the year.

Vol. 23, issue 3, May-June 2014
INFORMATION VISUALIZATION, deadline February 10th 2014 (sorry for the short notice)
Take advantage of having published your article illustrations in full colour!
In this issue we still don't charge any fee for publishing (unless you choose our OA choice, @ Euro 400).

Vol. 23, issue 4, July-August 2014
ALTMETRICS, deadline March 10th 2014
Important notice:
The general economic crisis has affected the number of institutional subscribers to EPI –libraries have no money for subscriptions-. This situation is beginning to threaten the viability of EPI as an independent journal that is self-financed based on its market value.
So before it's too late, we decided to change our funding strategy from a model that only lies in subscriptions to another where the costs are shared between subscribers and authors. As a consequence, from this issue v. 23, n. 4 on, we are going to charge Euro 200 per published article.
We remind you that in case you prefer to pay for freeing your article, you still have available our OA choice at only Euro 400 per article.
