"Editorial Policy," American Association of Law Libraries, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="https://www.aallnet.org/resources-publications/publications/law-library-journal/llj-policy/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.aallnet.org/resources-publications/publications/law-library-journal/llj-policy/</a>] <strong>Submission and review process:</strong> As is standard practice for scholarly journals, <em>LLJ </em>only accepts unpublished manuscripts which are not being considered for publication elsewhere. The editor works closely with authors throughout the review process and keeps the latter informed of the expected production schedule. Additionally, the journal encourages potential authors to submit queries before submitting articles for consideration.[11. "Editorial Policy," American Association of Law Libraries, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="https://www.aallnet.org/resources-publications/publications/law-library-journal/llj-policy/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.aallnet.org/resources-publications/publications/law-library-journal/llj-policy/</a>] <strong>Editorial tone:</strong> Scholarly, although many articles have adapted an engaging narrative style, which is as readable as it is informative.[12. James E. Duggan, ed. "American Association of Law Libraries <em>Law Library Journal</em> Author’s Guide," Entire issue, <em>Law Library Journal </em>109, no. 4 (2017).] <strong>Style guide used:</strong> <em>The Bluebook</em>, which illustrates how to format footnotes and references<i> </i>is used in conjunction with <em>The</em><em> Chicago Manual of Style</em>.[13. "Editorial Policy," American Association of Law Libraries, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="https://www.aallnet.org/resources-publications/publications/law-library-journal/llj-policy/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.aallnet.org/resources-publications/publications/law-library-journal/llj-policy/</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> <em>Law Library Journal </em>is an excellent choice for students working in law libraries, lawyers, judges, paralegals, law students, as well as anyone interested in law libraries in general, including the history of these valuable institutions. Although the subject matter of this publication is relatively specialized, authors who combine research with engaging narrative to frame in-depth articles on law libraries will feel right at home with <em>LLJ</em>.[14. James E. Duggan, ed. "American Association of Law Libraries <em>Law Library Journal</em> Author’s Guide," Entire issue, <em>Law Library Journal </em>109, no. 4 (2017).] &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> "Circulates to nearly 4500 members and subscribers." [15. James E. Duggan, ed. "American Association of Law Libraries <em>Law Library Journal</em> Author’s Guide," Entire issue, <em>Law Library Journal </em>109, no. 4 (2017).] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> Because <em>Law Library Journal </em>is published by the American Association of Law Libraries, the bulk of its audience is comprised of English-speakers, particularly those who live in the U.S. and/or are interested in U.S. law libraries.[16. James E. Duggan, ed. "American Association of Law Libraries <em>Law Library Journal</em> Author’s Guide," Entire issue, <em>Law Library Journal </em>109, no. 4 (2017).] However, the journal also publishes research which describes the role of law in other countries, particularly European countries which have influenced the U.S.[17. James E. Duggan, ed. "Introduction," Entire issue, <em>Law Library Journal </em>109, no. 4 (2017).] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> <em>LLJ </em>readers are primarily law librarians or others who work with legal materials and resources. They may work in law firms, law libraries, law schools, public libraries with law sections, etc. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Readers will be familiar with both LIS and legal jargon. Additionally, since the bulk of <em>LLJ's </em>readers are AALL members, it's worth examining the general knowledge base of the AALL. AALL members belong to a variety of committees, including the Citation Formats Committee,[18. "Citations Formats Committee," American Association of Law Libraries, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="https://www.aallnet.org/report/citation-formats-committee/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.aallnet.org/report/citation-formats-committee/</a>] Fair Business Practices Implementation Task Force,[19. "Fair Business Practices Implementation Task Force," American Association of Law Libraries, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="https://www.aallnet.org/report/fair-business-practices-implementation-task-force/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.aallnet.org/report/fair-business-practices-implementation-task-force/</a>] and Recruitment to Law Librarianship Committee.[20. "Recruitment to Law Librarianship Committee," American Association of Law Libraries, accessed February, 23, 2018, <a href="https://www.aallnet.org/report/recruitment-to-law-librarianship-committee/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.aallnet.org/report/recruitment-to-law-librarianship-committee/</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> <em>Law Library Journal</em>'s readers are very familiar with legal procedure, courts, and librarianship. While the articles in this journal are written in an easy-to-understand style, readers expect authors to accurately portray the nuances of U.S. law, the history of libraries in general, etc. Thus, although the topics portrayed within the journal are broader than the title suggests, thorough knowledge of U.S. law and its history is suggested before submitting to this publication. <strong>Last updated:</strong> February 23, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
