Authors should be sure of their information, as readers of the journal are experts in the field and expect to have high-quality research in the journal. <em>Huntington Library Quarterly</em> is abstracted in America: History and Life; Annual Bibliography of English Language and Literature (ABELL); Bibliography of the History of Art: BHA; British Humanities Index; FRANCIS; Historical Abstracts; Humanities Index; Humanities International Complete; I B R - Internationale Bibliographie der Rezensionen Wissenshcaftlicher Literatur; I B Z - Internationale Bibliographie der Geistes-und Sozialwissenschlaftlichen; MLA International Bibliography; Periodicals Index Online; ProQuest Research Library; Religion Index One: Periodicals; Routledge ABES; SCOPUS.[13. <em>Huntington Library Quarterly,</em> University of Pennsylvania Press, accessed April 26, 2017, <a href="http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/">http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/</a>] <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation: </strong>No specific numbers available. The <em>Quarterly</em> is available by subscription only but is abstracted and indexed in a variety of locations.[14. <em>Huntington Library Quarterly,</em> University of Pennsylvania Press, accessed April 26, 2017, <a href="http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/">http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations: </strong>The journal is published in English by the University of Pennsylvania Press. Though online access makes an international audience possible, the thematic focus of the journal indicates most readers would be academics in English-speaking countries.[15. <em>Huntington Library Quarterly,</em> Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed April 26, 2017, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405962725458/46882" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405962725458/46882</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics: </strong>No specific information available, but readers are most likely experts in the subjects and time period highlighted by the <em>Quarterly</em>. Most will have at least one, if not more, advanced degree. It can be assumed that readers are highly interested in British and American history, art, and literature, as well as in archival studies.[16. <em>Huntington Library Quarterly,</em> University of Pennsylvania Press, accessed April 26, 2017, <a href="http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/">http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter: </strong>Although it may be assumed that some readers of <em>HLQ</em> have a knowledge of archival practice, others will have a purely academic or aesthetic interest in the period. Readers will not have a great interest in non-archival aspects of librarianship.[17. <em>Huntington Library Quarterly,</em> University of Pennsylvania Press, accessed April 26, 2017, <a href="http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/">http://hlq.pennpress.org/home/</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> <em>The Huntington Library Quarterly </em>is a prestigious academic journal with a very specific purpose: to highlight scholarship in early modern history and literature in England and the US. Publication in the <em>Quarterly</em> would be a boost to an academic or writing career. Readers are assumed to have deep knowledgeable about archival studies and British and American culture of 1500 to 1900, so authors should be very sure of their information and provide new research and thinking in the field. <strong>Last updated: </strong>April 26, 2017 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
