Knowledge of LIS subject matter: Academic Exchange Quarterly publishes a wide cross section of higher education subjects.22 Because of the reader’s presumed limited knowledge of LIS subjects, authors should avoid technical jargon and basic LIS principles should be explained when included in an article.

As such, LIS authors in pursuing a career in academia might consider Academic Exchange Quarterly as a possible target for publication.
