Additionally, <em>The Library Quarterly </em>is a respected publication with a lengthy history which dates back to 1931. Finally, the journal is marketed towards "all areas of librarianship,"[15. <em>The Library Quarterly, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 7, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404342970350/48843" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404342970350/48843</a>] so contributions from librarians of all types are welcomed. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> No information is available. <strong>Audience location:</strong> <em>Library Quarterly</em> is published in the U.S. (in English only) but is indexed in international databases[16. <em>The Library Quarterly, </em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 7, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404342970350/48843" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1404342970350/48843</a>]. Thus, writers should keep specific cultural references to a minimum. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers likely have (or are currently working towards) a master's degree in library and information science, and many may have post-graduate degrees as well. Additionally, readers are interested in research-based scholarship, demonstrating that they take their profession very seriously and are committed to staying informed and educated.[17. "About," University of Chicago Press, accessed March 7, 2018, <a href="https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/journals/lq/about" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/journals/lq/about</a>] Since <em>Library Quarterly</em> is geared towards librarians and information professionals as a whole, its audience includes professionals in public libraries, special libraries, academic libraries, and other information-based organizations.[18. "About," University of Chicago Press, accessed March 7, 2018, <a href="https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/journals/lq/about" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/journals/lq/about</a>] Their interests within the profession will be varied, as will their experience levels. Information professionals in general are eager to learn and keep apprised of the latest research. They value education and tend to be lifelong learners. Their personal and political views are, for purposes of this journal, irrelevant. In reading <em>Library Quarterly</em>, they will be concerned only with the relevance of articles to their work. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Due to their aforementioned characteristics, readers are likely to have in-depth knowledge of LIS subject matter, trends, and jargon.[19. "About," University of Chicago Press, accessed March 7, 2018, <a href="https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/journals/lq/about" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/journals/lq/about</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Readers of <em>The </em><em>Library Quarterly</em> expect evidence-based research which builds on existing scholarship to present compelling, new findings. Additionally, even though <em>The Library Quarterly </em>appeals to a broad scope of readers, authors should avoid making sweeping assumptions about any particular group. Similarly, due to the journal's focus on quality research, authorial opinion should be omitted in most pieces. Even book reviews should use objective facts to frame the author's opinion. <strong>Last updated:</strong> March 7, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
