Recently published articles focus on text mining, the value consumers place on personal information, etc.[15. "Overview," Wiley Online Library, accessed February 7, 2018, <a href="http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)2330-1643/homepage/ProductInformation.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/(ISSN)2330-1643/homepage/ProductInformation.html</a>] &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Circulation:</strong> No information is available on circulation numbers. <strong>Geographic location: </strong> <em>JASIST</em> is published in English but has an international reach.[16. <i>Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology, </i>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed February 7, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1412979904237/41862" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1412979904237/41862</a>] <strong>Language or cultural considerations:</strong> "Authors for whom English is a second language should consider having their manuscript professionally edited before submission."[17. "Author Guidelines," Wiley Online Library, accessed February 7, 2018, <a href="http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/%28ISSN%291532-2890/homepage/ForAuthors.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1002/%28ISSN%291532-2890/homepage/ForAuthors.html</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Members of the Association for Information Science &amp; Technology (ASIS&amp;T) comprise the majority of this journal's audience. (ASIS&amp;T was formerly known as the American Society for Information Science and Technology.) ASIS&amp;T members include "thousands of researchers, developers, practitioners, students, and professors in the field of information science and technology from 50 countries around the world."[18. "About ASIS&amp;T," Association for Information Science and Technology, accessed February 8, 2018, <a href="https://www.asist.org/about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.asist.org/about/</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter: </strong>Readers are most likely graduate and post-graduate LIS professionals with an interest in research and a thorough background in LIS terminology. Articles in the February 2018 issue, for example, cover technical subjects such as cloud management, system design, and bibliometric models.[19. "<em>Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology </em>- Volume 69, Issue 2 - February 2018," Wiley Online Library, accessed February 8, 2018, <a href="http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/asi.2018.69.issue-2/issuetoc" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/asi.2018.69.issue-2/issuetoc</a>] <strong>Biases, values, and attitudes:</strong> Like all information professionals, ASIS&amp;T members oppose censorship of all forms and value open, unbiased, and accurate communication. If the subject matter of an article does convey a bias, however, ASIS&amp;T members prefer that it is clearly stated.[20. "ASIS&amp;T Professional Guidelines," Association for Information Science and Technology, accessed February 8, 2018, <a href="https://www.asist.org/about/asist-professional-guidelines/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.asist.org/about/asist-professional-guidelines/</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Authors who wish to write for <em>JASIST </em>need to be well-versed in information technology. Furthermore, graduate and post-graduate researchers interested in conducting original research on emerging information technology trends will feel right at home with this journal.[21.
