Although this is an Australian journal that publishes research relevant to the Australian LIS community, it also explicitly invites contributions from around the world. For the North American LIS researcher and author, this journal provides an opportunity to showcase original research to a global community. The publication is abstracted or indexed in Australian education index, Australian library and information science abstracts, APAIS: Australian public affairs information service, Information science abstracts, Library and information science abstracts, and Library literature.[16. <em>"Australian Academic and Research Libraries (AARL),"</em> Australian Library and Information Association, accessed November 6, 2016, <a title="AARL" href="https://www.alia.org.au/publications-and-news/australian-academic-and-research-libraries-aarl">https://www.alia.org.au/publications-and-news/australian-academic-and-research-libraries-aarl</a>] &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation</strong>: Circulation statistics are not readily available for this journal. However, as the premier research journal for the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA), with 4,200 individual memberships and 800 institutional memberships,[17. "ALIA Fact Sheet," Australian Library and Information Association, accessed November 6, <a title="ALIA Fact Sheet" href="https://www.alia.org.au/sites/default/files/ALIA-Fact-Sheet.pdf">https://www.alia.org.au/sites/default/files/ALIA-Fact-Sheet.pdf</a>] the potential for reaching many readers is great. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations</strong>: The majority of readers are Australian and the content reflects this. Authors should be aware of the language and cultural differences between the U.S. and Australia.  Colloquialisms and cultural references unique to the United States should be avoided. <strong>Reader characteristics</strong>: <em>AARL</em> does not provide demographic information on its readers. As it is the premier research journal of the Australian Library and Information Association, it is likely that the majority of readers are members of the ALIA, which is "open to professionals, non-professionals and individuals and organizations alike."[18. "ALIA Fact Sheet," Australian Library and Information Association, accessed November 6, <a title="ALIA Fact Sheet" href="https://www.alia.org.au/sites/default/files/ALIA-Fact-Sheet.pdf">https://www.alia.org.au/sites/default/files/ALIA-Fact-Sheet.pdf</a>] <strong>Reader knowledge of LIS subject matter</strong>: Although some readers may not be information science professionals, the majority work in library and information fields and would therefore be very knowledgeable about LIS subjects. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> <em>Australian Academic &amp; Research Libraries</em> is an internationally recognized publication that holds high standards for its published works. This journal reaches a wide audience of library and information professionals who are interested in current research in the field as well as relevant issues in their workplaces. For current Australian residents, or even North Americans who have lived or travelled in Australia, this journal provides its authors with a large and knowledgeable audience. Although the majority of readers are most likely Australian, and the journal "aims to showcase theoretical and practice-based research undertaken in, about, and relevant to, Australia,"[19. <em>"Australian Academic and Research Libraries (AARL),"</em> Australian Library and Information Association, accessed November 6, <a title="AARL" href="https://www.alia.org.au/publications-and-news/australian-academic-and-research-libraries-aarl">https://www.alia.org.au/publications-and-news/australian-academic-and-research-libraries-aarl</a>] the editors specifically invite "authors worldwide, working across the full range of information professions, as well as those in the higher education sector and research libraries"[20. <em>"Australian Academic and Research Libraries (AARL),"</em> Australian Library and Information Association, accessed November 6, <a title="AARL" href="https://www.alia.org.au/publications-and-news/australian-academic-and-research-libraries-aarl">https://www.alia.org.au/publications-and-news/australian-academic-and-research-libraries-aarl</a>] to contribute to the journal. The large audience of readers that this journal offers would provide an excellent forum for LIS authors worldwide. <strong>Last updated</strong>: November 6, 2016 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
