It is extremely helpful that, even if your paper is rejected by <em>JRLYA</em>, the editors will suggest alternate publications for you to submit to. Writing topics cover every aspect of YA/librarianship you can think of.

"About JRLYA," The Journal of Research on Libraries and Young Adults, accessed February 1, 2018, <a href="http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/about/</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> <em>JRLYA</em> is intended for LIS researchers, faculty, students, and professional librarians interested in young adult library services.[28. "About JRLYA," The Journal of Research on Libraries and Young Adults, accessed February 1, 2018, <a href="http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/about/</a>] Per the Author Guidelines, the journal asks authors to consider the following style points when submitting for publication: <ul> <li>Choose terms that reflect YALSA'€™s philosophy.</li> <li>Avoid sexist language.</li> <li>Articles should be of a scholarly, research-based nature.[29. "Author Guidelines," The Journal of Research on Libraries and Young Adults, accessed February 1, 2018,  <a href="http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/author-guidelines/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/author-guidelines/</a>]</li> </ul> <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter: </strong>Readers are likely very familiar with LIS subject matter. However, the journal doesn't just cater to professional librarians, per their website: "The scope of the journal includes all aspects of library services to young adults at every level and for all types of libraries."[30. "About JRLYA," The Journal of Research on Libraries and Young Adults, accessed February 1, 2018, <a href="http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/about/</a>]€€ So, if including LIS jargon in your submission, make sure it's explained or easily inferred within the context. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Esteemed authors such as Anthony Bernier, Carol C. Kuhlthau, and Virginia Walter have written for and commended the efforts of <em>JRLYA</em>.[31. "All Volumes," The Journal of Research on Libraries and Young Adults, accessed February 1, 2018, <a title="JRLYA Archives" href="http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/all-volumes/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.yalsa.ala.org/jrlya/all-volumes/</a>]€€ Readers can connect with YALSA on Facebook, Twitter, various blogs, and via a special <a title="JRLYA Wiki" href="http://wikis.ala.org/yalsa/index.php/Main_Page" target="_blank" rel="noopener">wiki</a> YALSA maintains to facilitate research and discussion of all things young adult. This is a wonderful publication, to read or write for; it is helpful and respectful of authors and takes its content very seriously, while never being dull or stuffy. In short, <em>JRLYA </em>is a great source of YA information. <strong>Last updated:</strong> February 5, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
