The journal gives authors the opportunity to present information specific to this population, as well as information which affects librarianship as a whole. Additionally, <em>JLIS </em>is indexed by the Taiwan Humanities &amp; Social Sciences Citation Index Database (TCI-HSS), DOAJ, LISA, PAIS, and Ulrich's, offering authors multiple avenues for visibility.[16.

"Soliciting Methods," Department of Social Education of the National Taiwan Normal University and the Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA), accessed March 15, 2018, <a href="http://jlis.glis.ntnu.edu.tw/ojs/index.php/jlis/notes/submissions" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://jlis.glis.ntnu.edu.tw/ojs/index.php/jlis/notes/submissions</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers will have the same characteristics as most librarians but will expect more emphasis on services, technologies, and innovations for Chinese speakers. In other words, readers will expect to find information immediately relevant to Chinese communities.[19. <em>Journal of Library and Information Science, </em>Department of Social Education of the National Taiwan Normal University and the Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA), accessed March 15, 2018, <a href="http://jlis.glis.ntnu.edu.tw/ojs/index.php/jlis/index" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://jlis.glis.ntnu.edu.tw/ojs/index.php/jlis/index</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Because the bulk of this publication's audience members are information professionals,[20. <em>Journal of Library and Information Science, </em>Department of Social Education of the National Taiwan Normal University and the Chinese American Librarians Association (CALA), accessed March 15, 2018, <a href="http://jlis.glis.ntnu.edu.tw/ojs/index.php/jlis/index" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://jlis.glis.ntnu.edu.tw/ojs/index.php/jlis/index</a>] authors can expect readers to be very familiar with LIS subject matter, including jargon. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Readers will expect authors to not only be fluent in Chinese, but also be familiar with Chinese culture and how it influences librarianship. Additionally, readers will expect authors to present meticulous yet compelling research which promotes the development of Chinese librarianship.[21. <em>Journal of Library and Information Science, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 14, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1521078816848/648883" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1521078816848/648883</a>] <strong>Last updated:</strong> March 15, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
