Per the website, "Papers submitted to <em>JoDI</em> must be original. As a peer-reviewed journal <em>JoDI</em> is unable to consider papers that have been accepted by or published in another peer reviewed source, or any other publication where copyright in the work has been assigned to another party (this does not include any copy on your personal or your institutional websites). For the same reason, <em>JoDI</em> is also unable to consider papers while they may be being considered for publication elsewhere."[11. "Editorial Policies," Texas Digital Library, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Journal of Digital Information Editorial Policies" href="https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/editorialPolicies#focusAndScope" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/editorialPolicies#focusAndScope</a>] <strong>Submission and review process:</strong> Submission is online and requires authors to create an account with the site. From the site: "Since <em>JoDI</em> is a web-based journal, the preferred presentation format is HTML. We strongly recommend submission in this form but we will accept manuscripts in other Web-viewable formats, such as PDF. Where a non-html paper is submitted the author's final, refereed and accepted copy will be presented unedited, supplemented with an edited html 'front page' version."[12. "Submissions," Texas Digital Library, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Journal of Digital Information (JoDI) Submission Guidelines" href="https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions</a>] Once an article is submitted an author is able to monitor the review process by logging into their account. <strong>Editorial tone:</strong> Academic[13. <em>Journal of Digital Information,</em> Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405444978063/270336" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405444978063/270336</a>] <strong>Style guide used:</strong> None specified; however, the submission guidelines document does provide specific examples of references and formatting.[14. "Submissions," Texas Digital Library, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Journal of Digital Information (JoDI) Submission Guidelines" href="https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> The <em>Journal of Digital information</em> is a very good journal for librarians interested in writing on the technical aspects of digital information (metadata, indexing, hypermedia, digital curation, etc). &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation for this online, open-access journal is not available. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> The readers' geographic locations are unknown, though there are probably more readers in Texas as that is where the journal is based.[15. <em>Journal of Digital Information,</em> Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405444978063/270336" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405444978063/270336</a>] The <em>Journal of Digital Information</em> is a highly specialized electronic journal, so even though Texas may have more readers per capita, the publication's readership most likely spread throughout the United States and, to some extent, other English-speaking countries.[16. "Submissions," Texas Digital Library, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Journal of Digital Information (JoDI) Submission Guidelines" href="https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/about/submissions#onlineSubmissions</a>] The <em>Journal of Digital Information</em> is published in English. Since <em>JoDI</em> is an academic journal, it is likely that most readers are students, professors, and professionals.[17. <em>Journal of Digital Information,</em> Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405444978063/270336" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405444978063/270336</a>] Despite academia being a sort of micro-culture, it is still important for writers to refrain from cultural references that may be too local. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers of the <em>Journal of Digital Information</em> are most likely information professionals specializing in digital storage and retrieval. Workplaces may range from libraries, software companies, various technical services,  and IT departments. Readers of the <em>Journal of Digital Information</em> are highly specific in their reading interest; hence, it is not safe to assume that the average reader will have a high degree of knowledge or interest in libraries or information organizations -- except as they may pertain to digital information dissemination. Writers wishing to publish should keep in mind that readers are highly specialized and most likely are well versed in the field of digital information.[18. <em>"Journal of Digital Information,"</em> Texas Digital Library, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Journal of Digital Information (JoDI)" href="https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Readers will have extensive knowledge related to digital information (such as tagging, indexing, web2.0, and database-design) but may not have such a well-versed comprehension of other aspects of librarianship.[19. <em>"Journal of Digital Information,"</em> Texas Digital Library, accessed May 14, 2017, <a title="Journal of Digital Information (JoDI)" href="https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Potential authors for the <em>Journal of Digital Information</em> should know that their readers are well-read and comfortable with technical jargon. Readers come to <em>JoDI</em> for research-oriented essays and reports, and expect to see research conveyed with tables and charts. Keeping this in mind, readers can be creative with their essays as long as it still pertains to the topic (a good example is from 2006's vol.7 no. 2 issue: "Finding Murphy Brown: How Accessible are Historic Television Broadcasts?" by Jeff Ubois[20. Jeff Ubois, "Finding Murphy Brown: How accessible are historic television broadcasts?" <em>Journal of Digital Information, 7</em>(2),  <a title="Journal of Digital Information Ubois Article" href="https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/article/view/172" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">https://journals.tdl.org/jodi/index.php/jodi/article/view/172</a>]). <em>JoDI</em> is a free electronic publication, so it may be of interest to potential authors that their work will be online and available to anyone who creates an account with the Texas Digital Library. <strong>Last updated:</strong> November 3, 2014 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
