"About."] This is a prestigious publishing house that puts writers through a rigorous process just to get to publication; and once you're there, there is the support of editors and the brand behind your finished book.[19. "Instructions for Authors."] This is an excellent group to consider proposing for an LIS specific book idea, as ideas can range from the very scholarly studies to more everyday topics that librarians or information professionals should be aware of. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publisher's audience</h4> <b>Size</b>: Large, and international.[20. "Information for Authors."] <b>Audience location and language or cultural considerations: </b>Offices for the US are based in New York;[21. "Information for Authors."] office for the UK and the rest of the world are based in Oxford, England.[22. "Information for Authors."]<b> </b>The publisher notes that a majority of sales come from outside the UK, in the US and elsewhere around the world.[23. "Information for Authors."] <b>Reader characteristics: </b>Readers seeking high quality reference works specifically for an educational or library setting, or simply for their own personal and professional development. These are sophisticated readers and "students at all stages of their studies."[24. "Books," TaylorandFrancis.com, accessed January 30, 2018, <a title="Books" href="http://taylorandfrancis.com/books/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://taylorandfrancis.com/books/</a>] <b>Knowledge of LIS subject matter: </b>Varying. Most people seeking out Routledge books will most likely be academics, but whether in the LIS field specifically is not a given. However, Routledge readers are knowledgeable and educated, so assume a degree of understanding, and a quick learning curve, when referencing LIS subject matter. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> The primary readership of Routledge materials includes academics, librarians, and educators interested in new titles pertaining to LIS. This is a group that eagerly awaits new publications, and is notified through a variety of resources when new topics are published. Routledge is dedicated to the promotion of your publications to a wide, eager audience.
