Antony Bryant, ed., "Table of Contents." Entire issue, <em>Library Trends </em>66, no. 2 (2017).] <strong>Frequency of publication:</strong> Quarterly.[10. <em>Library Trends</em>, Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520795935546/48848" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520795935546/48848</a>] <h4>About the publication's submission guidelines</h4> <strong>Location of submission guidelines:</strong> <a title="Library Trends Submission Guidelines" href="http://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library_trends/guidelines.html" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library_trends/guidelines.html</a> <strong>Types of contributions accepted: </strong><em>Library Trends</em> does not accept single-article submissions; rather, each issue covers a specific topic, and manuscript submissions are invited and organized by <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/guest-editing-issue" target="_blank" rel="noopener">guest editor(s)</a>. "Articles published in <em>Library Trends</em> are typically in the range of 4,000-10,000 words, not including references and supplementary material. Longer or shorter submissions can be accommodated, but this is dependent on the significance of the content and subject to consultations with the guest and general editors."[11. "Author Instructions," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/author-instructions" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/author-instructions</a>] <strong>Submission and review process:</strong> "Articles must be submitted in Microsoft Word, typically via e-mail or an electronic file sharing service, to the guest editor, who will then shepherd it through for review."[12. "Author Instructions," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/author-instructions" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/author-instructions</a>] <strong>Editorial tone:</strong> "The style and tone of the journal is formal rather than journalistic or popular."[13. "Guest Editing an Issue," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/guest-editing-issue" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/guest-editing-issue</a>] <strong>Style guide used:</strong> <em>The </em><em>Chicago Manual of Style, 17th Edition</em>.[14. "Author Instructions," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/author-instructions" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/author-instructions</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> <em>Library Trends </em>is an excellent choice for LIS authors who work well with specific writing prompts. "A guest editor proposes the theme and scope of a new issue, draws up a list of prospective authors and article topics, calls for submissions to the issue, arranges for review of the manuscripts, provides short annotations of each article’s scope, and prepares a statement of philosophy guiding issue development."[15. "Guest Editing an Issue," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/guest-editing-issue" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/guest-editing-issue</a>] Working closely with a guest editor in such a structured manner allows LIS authors to hone desirable skills such as discipline and teamwork. It also provides valuable networking opportunities. All in all, this journal is a prestigious choice for both new and seasoned LIS authors. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> "Print circulation: 459."[16. "Advertising Info," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/advertising-info" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/advertising-info</a>] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations: </strong>The journal is published in English in the U.S.[17. <em>Library Trends</em>, Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520795935546/48848" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520795935546/48848</a>], so it's safe to say that a substantial portion of its readers live in the U.S. However, as mentioned above, many articles cover issues pertaining to libraries around the world, so authors should limit colloquialisms, specific cultural references, etc. to ensure their pieces appeal to readers worldwide. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> No readership information is provided, although the journal allows advertisers to rent lists of subscribers who belong to a variety of scholarly associations, including the American Studies Association (ASA).[18. "Mailing List Rental," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 12, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/advertising-mail-lists/mailing-list-rental" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/advertising-mail-lists/mailing-list-rental</a>] Most readers will be interested in scholarly topics and will likely have advanced degrees. The publication notes, "Issue topics for Library Trends are developed in many ways. We value recommendations from professional librarians, archivists, and other information personnel, from members of the faculties of schools of library and information science, and from others whose concern is with issues of the management of cultural heritage,"[19. "Guest Editing an Issue," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/guest-editing-issue" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/guest-editing-issue</a>] suggesting that many readers value the preservation of cultural heritage as it pertains to libraries. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter: </strong>Readers are likely to have a solid understanding of LIS issues and terminology pertaining to public libraries, international libraries, research libraries, special libraries, etc.[20. "Advertising Info," Johns Hopkins University Press, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/advertising-info" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/library-trends/advertising-info</a>] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Readers expect authors to provide well-researched articles on new and emerging LIS trends.[21. <em>Library Trends</em>, Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory, accessed March 11, 2018, <a href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520795935546/48848" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1520795935546/48848</a>]Additionally, readers will expect a thoughtful analysis of the theme in question (e.g., empowerment for the volume 66, no. 2 issue).[21. Antony Bryant, ed., "Table of Contents." Entire issue, <em>Library Trends </em>66, no. 2 (2017).] Finally, due to the journal's international focus, readers will expect authors to be well-informed on the ways specific cultures and LIS trends intersect. <strong>Last updated:</strong> March 12, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
