As is standard, the journal only accepts unpublished articles and articles which aren't currently under review elsewhere. Authors are asked to create an account through <a href="http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/lht" target="_blank" rel="noopener">ScholarOne Manuscripts</a> and submit their manuscripts there. As for the review process, manuscripts undergo a double-blind peer review after passing the initial editorial screening.[12.

"Core Practices," Committee on Publication Ethics, accessed March 2, 2018, <a href="https://publicationethics.org/core-practices" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://publicationethics.org/core-practices</a>] Additionally, the journal supports all of its findings with systematic research. For instance, a 2017 article on Apple and non-Apple smartwatches administered an online survey and found that "perceived product attributes" are an important factor in selecting one watch over the other.[18. Kuo-Lun Hsiao, "What Drives Smartwatch Adoption Intention? Comparing Apple and Non-Apple Watches," <em>Library Hi Tech </em>35, no. 1(2017): 186-206, accessed March 2, 2018, <a href="https://doi.org/10.1108/LHT-09-2016-0105">https://doi.org/10.1108/LHT-09-2016-0105</a>] &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Unavailable.

"Author Guidelines," Emerald Publishing, accessed March 2, 2018, <a href="http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=lht" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.emeraldgrouppublishing.com/products/journals/author_guidelines.htm?id=lht</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Readers of this journal are passionate about technology in the LIS workplace. They expect articles to present all findings objectively and methodically, in keeping with the journal's strong research focus. Readers are likely to welcome articles about emerging technologies from an LIS student point of view, as well as case studies/examples of how technologies are used in classrooms (virtual or not), and in library communities. <strong>Last updated: </strong>March 3, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
