"Database Management and Information Retrieval/Instructions for Authors," Springer, accessed October 31, 2016, <a href="http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502">http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> A review of previously published articles indicates that the majority of authors are from the LIS academic community. <em>Archival Science</em> is an international publication, and the authors are international as well. Faculty at U.S. institutions such as Simmons College, the University of North Carolina, and the University of Pittsburgh were represented with recent articles. There was no indication of graduate students' work in the publication, suggesting this journal may only be an option for experienced authors from the academic community; however, the journal does offer mentoring through their online course (Springer Author Academy). &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation</strong>: Not provided. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations</strong>: This is an English-language journal published in the Netherlands. Due to its international audience, prospective authors should avoid regionalisms and ensure that any references, such as cultural and geographic terms, are clear to the reader.[17. "Database Management and Information Retrieval/Instructions for Authors," Springer, accessed October 31, 2016, <a href="http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502">http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics</strong>: Readers are academics, well-educated within their field, and interested in promoting archival science as an autonomous scientific discipline. Interests span all aspects of archival science theory, methodology, and practice. While readers work in a variety of environments, including universities, governments, and museums, the journal is aimed at academics. Readers would likely not have an interest in LIS issues beyond those related to their work as archivists. Also, writing that focuses on local issues not applicable to another location would hold little interest for the average reader.[18. "Database Management and Information Retrieval," Springer, accessed October 31, 2016, <a title="Archival Science" href="http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter</strong>: Archivists will most likely have a general understanding of how their work is related to the LIS field, but not all archivists will have an LIS degree. For example, archivists working for the United States federal government are not required to have an LIS degree.[19. "Database Management and Information Retrieval," Springer, accessed October 31, 2016, <a title="Archival Science" href="http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.springer.com/computer/database+management+%26+information+retrieval/journal/10502</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Authors interested in writing for this publication need to be secure in their knowledge and reputation in the archival profession, as the readers expect articles that are thought provoking and will add to their knowledge of the field. <strong>Last updated</strong>: October 31, 2016 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
