"Author Guidelines," Emerald Publishing Limited, <em>accessed May 15, 2017,</em> <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=jd">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=jd</a>] <strong>Editorial tone:</strong> Scholarly[13. "Author Guidelines," Emerald Publishing Limited, <em>accessed May 15, 2017,</em> <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=jd">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=jd</a>] <strong>Style guide used:</strong> Harvard style references[14. "Author Guidelines," Emerald Publishing Limited, <em>accessed May 15, 2017,</em> <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=jd">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=jd</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> The <em>Journal of Documentation</em> is a highly regarded journal of research, review, and evidence-based practice. It claims a rigorous peer-review process and would be a credit to an LIS writer seeking to publish for tenure and career advancement. Potential works may take the forms of research reports, scholarly reviews, articles on research methodology, historical articles, and "€œreviews of the evidence base for professional practice."[15. "Aims and Scope," Emerald Publishing Limited, <em>accessed May 15, 2017,</em> <a title="Journal of Documentation" href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=jd" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=jd</a>]€ &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation not listed. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural:</strong> <em>Journal of Documentation</em> is published in English in the United Kingdom.[16. <em>Journal of Documentation,</em> Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed May 15, 2017, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405366141613/38244" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1405366141613/38244</a>] A good amount of professional jargon will be familiar to most readers, depending more upon their professional discipline than upon their native tongue. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Given the content of the journal, it is likely that its readers work in a variety of library settings. This readership expects thoughtful, well-articulated conceptual work alongside evidence-driven research and practical approaches to problem-solving.[17. "Aims and Scope," Emerald Publishing Limited, <em>accessed May 15, 2017,</em> <a title="Journal of Documentation" href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=jd" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=jd</a>]€ <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Indications are that LIS subject matter knowledge among this readership is very high, and often specific to a particular area of practice or research. Readers may be experts in some other domain but interested in its relationship to LIS disciplines and have a high degree of comfort dealing with that material.[18. "Aims and Scope," Emerald Publishing Limited, <em>accessed May 15, 2017,</em> <a title="Journal of Documentation" href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=jd" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=jd</a>]€ <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> These readers will be knowledgeable about most LIS concepts and experts in specific areas. They will be critical readers and will want thoughtfulness in presentation along with evidence and sound reasoning in discussions and conclusions. <strong>Last updated:</strong> May 15, 2017 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
