As an open access, online publication of a leading information school, <em>FIQ</em> is freely accessible to academic and professional members of the information community the world over.[16. "Editorial Policies," University of Toronto Faculty of Information, accessed April 24, 2017, <a title="Faculty of Information Quarterly Focus and Scope" href="http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/editorialPolicies#focusAndScope" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/editorialPolicies#focusAndScope</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> Toronto, Canada.[17. <em>Faculty of Information Quarterly,</em> Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed April 24, 2017, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1406056076086/717394" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1406056076086/717394</a>] While its target audience is the global information community, the publication requires its authors to use Canadian spellings and to ensure the relevance of articles to Canadian culture.[18. "Submissions," University of Toronto Faculty of Information, accessed April 24, 2017, <a title="Faculty Information Quarterly Submission Guidelines" href="http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/submissions#authorGuidelines" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/submissions#authorGuidelines</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Though <em>FIQ</em> is an open-access publication with an international reach, it is likely, given its editorial bias,[19. "Submissions," University of Toronto Faculty of Information, accessed April 24, 2017, <a href="http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/submissions#authorGuidelines">http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/submissions#authorGuidelines</a> that the majority of its readers are Canadian or North American. Readers of this student-run journal will have a keen interest in the latest developments in the LIS field. The journal does state a preference for publishing the student work, so this is an ideal venue for a first publication.[20. "Focus and Scope," University of Toronto Faculty of Information, accessed April 24, 2017, <a title="Faculty of Information Quarterly Focus and Scope" href="http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/editorialPolicies#focusAndScope" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/editorialPolicies#focusAndScope</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> The majority of readers would have an LIS background or education; however, since <em>FIQ </em>strives for a global reach and LIS education varies around the global, writers should consider this when writing.[21. "Submissions," University of Toronto Faculty of Information, accessed April 24, 2017, <a title="Faculty Information Quarterly Submission Guidelines" href="http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/submissions#authorGuidelines" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://fiq.ischool.utoronto.ca/index.php/fiq/about/submissions#authorGuidelines</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> As a publication run by graduate students and primarily for graduate students and academics in the the LIS community, fellow graduate student authors would seem to have a better chance of publication in <em>FIQ</em>. <strong>Last updated:</strong> April 24, 2017 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
