English language publication. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Would vary widely; however, their connection with the school would be a common factor. Possibly more progressive than the general public given it is a publication of an educational institution. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Possibly higher than the general public due to university affiliation. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Readers, with their affiliation to the school and area, will expect articles that pertain to their life at the university.
