There are a lot of opportunities to explore the topic of the future possibilities for libraries, and therefore the topics available for this journal are extensive. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Circulation numbers are not available, however, this journal has been in publication since 1898, is index in over thirty international sources leading to the conclusion it had a substantial circulation.[15. SerialsSolutions. (2014). New Library World. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>.

SerialsSolutions. (2014). New Library World. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1403828327028/38438" target="_blank">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1403828327028/38438</a>] its international nature should be taken into consideration when choosing the language for an article. For example, it would most likely be helpful to avoid the use of any sort of cultural references or slang terms that may be country or region specific.[20. Publisher website no longer in use.  Please update.] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Once again, due to the vast international nature of this particular journal it attracts readers of all kinds, however, primarily readers with some connection to the library and information professional field.[21. Publisher website no longer in use.  Please update.] The journal attracts readers from all kinds of segments within the LIS professional spectrum, and also some library users.[22. Publisher website no longer in use.  Please update.] Since this is a journal that deals with the future of libraries, it is by its very nature progressive.[23. Publisher website no longer in use.  Please update.] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> The average reader of <em>New Library World</em> would have a broad understanding of LIS subject matters and issues. They should also have an understanding and knowledge of library jargon, provided that jargon is not country specific.[24. Publisher website no longer in use.  Please update.] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> I think the most important characteristic of the audience for a potential author to keep in mind would be the journal's international nature. This would mean that articles written would have to have a broad level of interest and would have to be applicable to LIS professionals and academics from all over the world. Since this is a scholarly journal with a large number of academics in its audience, the articles they would be most interested in would be those with a scholarly bent. <strong>Last updated:</strong> October 31, 2014 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
