For instance, in volume 39, issue 3/4, the topics covered include the economic crisis as it pertains to public libraries in Greece, agricultural libraries in Northern India, and a SWOT analysis of Jamaican academic libraries.[16. Steve O'Connor, ed., "Table of Contents." Entire issue, <em>Library Management </em>39, no. 3/4 (2018).] The journal should also be of particular interest to Chinese authors, due to its annual Chinese supplement.[17. "Aims &amp; Scope," Emerald Publishing, accessed March 3, 2018, <a href="http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=lm" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=lm</a>] LIS authors, whether professional librarians or library managers, have the opportunity to delve into current issues in library management and publish their research in a highly regarded academic journal. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation statistics are not available.

"Author Guidelines," Emerald Publishing, accessed March 3, 2018, <a href="http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=lm">http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=lm</a>] Also, the aforementioned annual Chinese supplement is a Chinese language publication, "created specifically for Chinese researchers"[22. "Emerald Launches Chinese Website," Emerald Publishing, accessed March 3, 2018, <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/about/news/story.htm?id=1279" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/about/news/story.htm?id=1279</a>] with an "Editorial Board of eminent Chinese Librarians and Educators."[23. "Emerald Launches Chinese Website," Emerald Publishing, accessed March 3, 2018, <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/about/news/story.htm?id=1279" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/about/news/story.htm?id=1279</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Most readers are senior managers and academics. Due to the journal's international scope, its audience will have diverse cultural experiences. However, readers will share an interest in current research and contemporary thought related to managerial issues in academic and government institutions worldwide.[24. "Aims &amp; Scope," Emerald Publishing, accessed March 3, 2018, <a href="http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=lm" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=lm</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter: </strong>Because of this publication's primary focus on LIS managers, readers are likely to have extensive knowledge of LIS subject matter.[25. "Aims &amp; Scope," Emerald Publishing, accessed March 3, 2018, <a href="http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=lm" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/journals.htm?id=lm</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> <em>LM's </em>audience is a knowledgeable, diverse, and academic audience. Readers expect high-level, thorough, and thoughtful research on leadership and management issues in libraries. Potential authors who want to share innovative approaches to these issues, especially with implications in real library settings, will find a highly invested audience. Ideally, authors should hold LIS managerial positions themselves to enhance their credibility in the eyes of their readers. <strong>Last updated:</strong> March 3, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
