As for the review process, manuscripts undergo a double-blind peer review conducted by two or more expert reviewers.[10. "Guide for Authors," Elsevier, accessed March 2, 2018, <a href="https://www.elsevier.com/journals/library-and-information-science-research/0740-8188/guide-for-authors" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.elsevier.com/journals/library-and-information-science-research/0740-8188/guide-for-authors</a>] <strong>Editorial tone:</strong> Scholarly.[11. <em>Library &amp; Information Science Research, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 2, 2018, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404429139063/82754" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404429139063/82754</a>] <strong>Style guide used:</strong> <em>Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association</em>.[12. "Guide for Authors," Elsevier, accessed March 2, 2018, <a href="https://www.elsevier.com/journals/library-and-information-science-research/0740-8188/guide-for-authors" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.elsevier.com/journals/library-and-information-science-research/0740-8188/guide-for-authors</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> <em>LISR</em> is one of only a handful of journals devoted to the scientific aspect of library and information science. Its long history, distinguished editorial board, and rigorous standards make it a prestigious outlet for LIS authors who are seeking tenure or trying to establish a reputation as researchers. Scholars or practitioners who have undertaken serious research projects and wish to share their methodology and findings with peers in their field should consider this publication. Note: A substantial knowledge of both a specific subject and the LIS field in general are prerequisites for submitting to this publication. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation information are not available. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> <em>LISR </em>is an English-language publication and is published in the United Kingdom.[13. <em>Library &amp; Information Science Research, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 2, 2018, <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404429139063/82754" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404429139063/82754</a>] Thus, authors can assume that readers of this publication are comfortable communicating in English. However, given the journal's global coverage, authors should be careful not to use regionalisms or make cultural references that international readers might not understand.[14. Hernon, Peter. 2008. Email message to author, September 28.] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> No information on reader characteristics for this publication is available. However, given the scholarly nature of this journal, it is reasonable to assume that demographic information for the readers of <em>LISR</em> would closely resemble that of librarians working for the Association of Research Libraries (ARL). According to ARL's Annual Salary Survey for 2012/2013, 63% of the librarians working for ARL libraries are female, while the remaining 37% are male. As for experience, 26% of these libraries (of both genders) have less than eight years of experience, 35% have nine to 20 years of experience, and the remaining 39% have more than 20 years of experience.[15. "Salary Survey," Association of Research Libraries, accessed March 2, 2018, <a title="ARL Salary Survey" href="http://www.arl.org/component/taxonomy/term/summary/49/88#.U7Xp8bGdROg" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.arl.org/component/taxonomy/term/summary/49/88#.U7Xp8bGdROg</a>] Additionally, it is reasonable to assume that the majority of people who read <em>LISR</em> are librarians working in an academic environment. Readers likely have a favorable opinion of work that is based on quantifiable evidence.[17. <em>Library &amp; Information Science Research</em>, Elsevier, accessed March 2, 2018, <a title="Library &amp; Information Science Research" href="http://www.journals.elsevier.com/library-and-information-science-research/#Scope" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.journals.elsevier.com/library-and-information-science-research/#Scope</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> The majority of readers are likely to have substantial knowledge of LIS subject matter, specifically issues relating to academic libraries.[16. <em>Library &amp; Information Science Research</em>, Elsevier, accessed March 2, 2018, <a title="Library &amp; Information Science Research" href="http://www.journals.elsevier.com/library-and-information-science-research/#Scope" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.journals.elsevier.com/library-and-information-science-research/#Scope</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Assuming a large amount of overlap between the demographics of the readership of <em>LISR</em> and the librarians employed by ARL libraries, this journal is read by experienced librarians working in academic libraries who expect well-documented research. Thus, authors should be careful to explain not only their conclusions, but also their methodology. <strong>Last updated: </strong>March 2, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
