"Journal Information," Emerald Publishing Limited, accessed March 9, 2018, <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=gkmc" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=gkmc</a>] Thus, authors interested in publishing with this journal have a wider range of topics to choose from than they do with traditional LIS journals. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Although specific circulation statistics are unavailable, the journal likely enjoys substantial readership (due to its international focus).[17. <em>Global Knowledge, Memory and Communication</em>, Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 9, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520607691074/38436" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520607691074/38436</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations: </strong>The journal is published in English in the U.K. and has readers and subscribers worldwide.[18. <em>Global Knowledge, Memory and Communication</em>, Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 9, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520607691074/38436" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520607691074/38436</a>] <em>GKMC</em>'s international scope is exemplified by its first issue published under its new name, with topics such as "The State of Institutional Repositories and Scholarly Communications in Nigeria," "Utilisation of Subscribed Electronic Resources by Library Users in Mzumbe Library, Tanzania," etc.[19. Judith Broady-Preston, ed., "Table of Contents." Entire issue, <em>Global Knowledge, Memory and Communication</em> 67, no. 1/2 (2018).] <strong>Reader characteristics: </strong>Readers are likely to value cutting-edge research on information-based topics pertaining to libraries and other information organizations. Additionally, readers will expect articles to be meticulously researched and to clearly document all findings, in keeping with the standard current and past articles have set.[20. Judith Broady-Preston, ed., "Table of Contents." Entire issue, <em>Global Knowledge, Memory and Communication</em> 67, no. 1/2 (2018).] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Writers can assume that readers have considerable knowledge of LIS issues and terminology, as well as information terminology in general.[21. "Journal Information," Emerald Publishing Limited, accessed March 12, 2018, <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=gkmc" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=gkmc</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> In keeping with the journal's new name, readers will expect articles on a broad spectrum of information science issues. For instance, a 2018 article entitled "Chinese Female Preference of Cosmetic Products Information Channels" describes Chinese women's information-seeking behaviors in regards to cosmetics.[22. Yonghe Lu and Xiaohua Liu, "Chinese Female Preference of Cosmetic Products Information Channels," <em>Global Knowledge, Memory and Communication </em>67, no. 3 (2018): 180-192, <a href="https://doi.org/10.1108/GKMC-04-2017-0042">https://doi.org/10.1108/GKMC-04-2017-0042</a>.] In other words, readers will expect articles to be varied in terms of topic selection but remain grounded in solid LIS theory. <strong>Last updated:</strong> March 12, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
