With the strong support of editors who will "mentor new authors to produce a publishable manuscript,"[16. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed May 17, 2017, <a title="Aims &amp; Scope" href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=whos20#.VQ3ABfnF8So">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=whos20#.VQ3ABfnF8So</a>] this journal provides a forum for even first-time authors. There is great potential for an author to make an impact on the hospital  LIS community through publication in this journal. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation statistics are not available, but as this is a publication targeted to a specific LIS community, i.e. hospital librarians, it can be assumed that most hospital library workers would have great interest in its content. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> This is an American journal that publishes in English only, but many articles are international in scope.[17. "Publication History," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed May 15, 2017, <a title="Volume 15 Issue 1" href="http://www.tandfonline.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/toc/whos20/current#.VQ3pyPnF8Sr">http://www.tandfonline.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/toc/whos20/current#.VQ3pyPnF8Sr</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> It may be assumed that readers will have a high interest in medical and hospital librarianship. Most will have an MLIS or other advanced degree. Most readers will be employed in hospital libraries, and will consider the articles in this journal to be vital to their professional development. Readers will be interested in anything related to providing health information to both the clinical professional and the lay person.[18. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed May 17, 2017, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=whos20">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=whos20</a>] However, they may not have much interest in or knowledge of other types of librarianship. <strong>Reader knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Most readers will be very knowledgeable of all aspects of hospital librarianship.[19. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed May 17, 2017, <a title="Aims &amp; Scope" href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=whos20#.VQ3ABfnF8So">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=whos20#.VQ3ABfnF8So</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> The audience for this journal is highly motivated and knowledgeable of hospital librarianship. For authors with expertise in medical or hospital librarianship, an article published in this journal has the potential for reaching a large portion of their medical librarian peer group. The audience will most likely be interested in discovering information dedicated to their particular corner of the LIS profession. With the promised editorial guidance for new authors, and the guarantee of high interest from the reader, this journal offers real opportunities for the LIS researcher and author. <strong>Last updated:</strong> May 15, 2017 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
