Because it covers a wide range of security topics, including "physical security; data and communications security; disaster preparedness and recovery; and studies of related social, legal, and ethical issues"[14. Taylor &amp; Francis. (2015). Aims &amp; Scope. <em>Library &amp; Archival Security.</em> Retrieved from <a title="Aims &amp; Scope" href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wlas20#.VTKltJMsDqk">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wlas20#.VTKltJMsDqk</a>], this journal offers a myriad of opportunities for LIS authors interested in this field. The latest issue (Volume 26, 2013) features articles on libraries in Nigeria, Iraq and Egypt, so the opportunities for authors outside of North America are apparent.[15. Taylor &amp; Francis. (2015). Articles. <em>Library &amp; Archival Security.</em> Retrieved from <a title="Articles" href="http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wlas20/current#.VTLGKpMsDqk">http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wlas20/current#.VTLGKpMsDqk</a>] &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> The text of this journal is in English.[16. ProQuest. (2015). Library &amp; Archival Security. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Global Serials Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1429378362099/438860">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1429378362099/438860</a>] As there is an international scope to some articles, it can be assumed that this journal reaches a global audience.[17. Taylor &amp; Francis. (2015). Articles. <em>Library &amp; Archival Security.</em> Retrieved from <a title="Articles" href="http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wlas20/current#.VTLGKpMsDqk">http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/wlas20/current#.VTLGKpMsDqk</a>] Articles must be accessible to an audience outside of North America. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> As the "editorial advisory board and review panel include practitioners and theoreticians in the fields of library and archival science, as well as professionals in the areas of security and disaster preparedness and recovery"[18. ABE-IPS. (2015). Library and Archival Security. <em>ABE-IPS Books Online Journals.</em> Retrieved from <a title="ABE-IPS" href="http://www.abe.pl/en/journal/6524/library-and-archival-security">http://www.abe.pl/en/journal/6524/library-and-archival-security</a>], the audience will be professionally varied. Most readers will be LIS professionals working in archives or libraries. As the focus of this journal is security preparedness in information centers, readers may hold managerial or supervisory positions in their institutions. <strong>Reader knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Knowledge level will high amongst the LIS professionals, but as the journal's target audience also includes "scholars and researchers with an interest in security planning"[19. ProQuest. (2015). Library &amp; Archival Security. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Global Serials Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1429378362099/438860">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1429378362099/438860</a>] specialized LIS knowledge may be minimal. Authors should keep LIS jargon to a minimum. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> These readers are professional scholars but are also managers, supervisors, and decision-makers. They want information that is both practical and scholarly.They will be looking for new ideas, case studies, and vigorously researched papers: in short, "articles of theoretical and practical importance."[20. ABE-IPS. (2015). Library and Archival Security. <em>ABE-IPS Books Online Journals.</em> Retrieved from <a title="ABE-IPS" href="http://www.abe.pl/en/journal/6524/library-and-archival-security">http://www.abe.pl/en/journal/6524/library-and-archival-security</a>] This is an excellent opportunity for the LIS author with an interest in, and experience with, security issues in libraries to make an impact on the decision-makers of the library profession. <strong>Last updated:</strong> April 18, 2015 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
