"Instructions for Authors," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed February 24, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=ylbh20&amp;page=instructions" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=ylbh20&amp;page=instructions</a>] As for the review process, all manuscripts are subject to a standard double-blind peer review, in keeping with the journal's standards for academic integrity.[12. "Instructions for Authors," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed February 24, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=ylbh20&amp;page=instructions" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=ylbh20&amp;page=instructions</a>] <strong>Editorial tone:</strong> Although the journal's title suggests a neutral tone, some articles, such as "See the Movie, Read the Book! Cleveland Public Library’s Bookmarks Programme, 1923–1972" take an enthusiastic tone towards their subject matter, with descriptions like "hugely influential" and "fascinating."[13. Karen F. Gracy, "See the Movie, Read the Book! Cleveland Public Library’s Bookmarks Programme, 1923–1972," <em>Library &amp; Information History </em>33, no. 4 (2017): 236.] This enthusiastic tone, however, does not in any way, shape, or form detract from the meticulous research of each article. Instead, this tone makes for a more engaging reading experience than, say, an article from a history textbook. <strong>Style guide used: </strong>The journal asks authors to use consistently use any standard spelling throughout a manuscript, as well as single quotation marks except for  where 'a quotation is "within" a quotation'. Lastly, the journal notes that lengthy quotes are indented without quotations marks.[14. "Style Guidelines," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed February 24, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=ylbh20&amp;page=instructions#Style_guidelines" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/authorSubmission?journalCode=ylbh20&amp;page=instructions#Style_guidelines</a>] For further guidance, please see these <a href="https://authorservices.taylorandfrancis.com/tf_quick_guide/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">layout guidelines</a>. <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> <em>Library &amp; Information History </em>is an excellent choice for authors with extensive knowledge of the history of libraries, as well as the ways our current information practices shape the "future of history."[15. Lena Roland and David Bawden, "The Future of History: Investigating the Preservation of Information in the Digital Age," <em>Library &amp; Information History, </em>28, no. 3 (2012): 220.] When viewed through this unique "future of history" lens, the options available to authors are even broader than the journal's title suggests. As for authors strictly interested in the history of libraries, this journal is simply incomparable. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation statistics are not available. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> Although based in the U.K., <em>Library &amp; Information History</em> is an international journal with a global reach.[16. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed February 24, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=ylbh20" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=ylbh20</a>] As such, regional cultural references and language should be kept to a minimum. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> While readers' jobs, workplaces, and level of education may vary, they share an interest in the history of libraries and information. Since <em>Library &amp; Information History</em> is a high-level academic journal[17. <em>Library &amp; Information History, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1519443448289/38434" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1519443448289/38434</a>], readers will most likely have post-secondary degrees in Library Science. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter: </strong>The bulk of this journal's readers are likely to be historians (amateur or professional) of library and information science. Also, due to the journal's scholarly nature, knowledge of LIS subject matter amongst readers is likely quite high.[18. <em>Library &amp; Information History, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1519443448289/38434" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1519443448289/38434</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> In keeping with the tone of the journal, readers are likely to be enthusiastic LIS history buffs and will appreciate a thoroughly researched scholarly paper. Due to the international flavor of this publication, readers are likely to be open-minded and interested in a variety of other cultures. Authors with a passion for LIS history will find a diverse audience for their ideas here.[19. "Aims and Scope," Taylor and Francis Group, accessed February 23, 2018, <a href="http://www.tandfonline.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=ylbh20" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.tandfonline.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=ylbh20</a>] <strong>Last updated:</strong> February 24, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
