Call for manuscripts on “Scientific information”

call_24_4

The international scientific journal “El profesional de la información” (EPI) is planning its July/August 2015 issue (v. 24, n. 4) on

Scientific information

  • Information sources (databases, journals, books, repositories, harvesters, publishing platforms…).
  • Information retrieval systems, search engines… 
  • Dissemination, outreach and scientific collaboration in social networks, reference managers…
  • Product and service evaluation and comparison. Do we have the resources we need? Are the conventional databases worth in a market dominated by the major search engines and publishing platforms? Can harvesters compete with Google? Will someone be able to compete with Google?
  • We are especially interested in theoretical and methodological studies, although we may also accept novel practical experiences.

We publish articles in English or Spanish.
