The review attracts readers from a variety of professions, not only LIS practitioners, and would be a good place to present LIS-learned views to a larger audience that might not be aware of the particular information/knowledge management angle. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation</strong>: Not available for the actual publication; <em>BIR</em> Twitter page has 156 followers [17.

Sage Publications Ltd. (2016). Aims and Scope. <em>Business Information Review</em>.

The publication is also directed towards managers and others in non-LIS professions[22. Sage Publications Ltd. (2016). About the Title. <em>Business Information Review</em>.
