The publication is for NMRT members and directed at new librarians.€“ <em>Endnotes</em> is the perfect place for LIS students and new authors to submit a query to supportive editorial staff and among a group of peers. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation</strong>: <em>Endnotes</em> is an open-access journal available online for anyone to read, but is primarily for members of the ALA'€™s NMRT.[16. "Endnotes Committee," American Library Association, accessed April 22, 2017, <a title="Endnotes Committee" href="http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations</strong>: ALA is based in Chicago, IL, but the website and newsletter are online open access, available to anyone with internet access, or through a library. œA network of affiliates, chapters, and other organizations enables the ALA to reach a broad audience. Although it is written in American English and published by the American Library Association, the ALA does not limit itself to U.S. library concerns.[17. "Endnotes Committee," American Library Association, accessed April 22, 2017, <a title="Endnotes Committee" href="http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics</strong>: Most readers of <em>Endnotes</em>, and all authors, are members of the ALA'€™s NMRT.[18. "Endnotes Committee," American Library Association, accessed April 22, 2017, <a title="Endnotes Committee" href="http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres</a>] ALA members include "librarians, library trustees, and other interested people from every state and many nations. The association serves public, state, school, and academic libraries, as well as special libraries for people working in government, commerce and industry, the arts, and the armed services or in hospitals, prisons, and other institutions."[19.

"Endnotes Committee," American Library Association, accessed April 22, 2017, <a title="Endnotes Committee" href="http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.ala.org/nmrt/oversightgroups/comm/schres</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Readers are primarily new members to the ALA, and are interested in reading the most recent LIS scholarly research, news, reviews and updates in order to further their education or careers, and to inspire their own research and writing. This is an ideal publication for new authors to consider, and as it'€™s part of the ALA, has built-in credibility and respect, as well as readership. <strong>Last updated</strong>: April 22. 2017 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
