The journal is published in English; however, given its intended international audience, the publishers stress the importance of using a straightforward writing style.[17. "Instructions for Authors."] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> The readers targeted are most likely librarians and information specialists associated with colleges and universities. While the specific practices at institutions of higher education may differ in the various nations where the journal is read, the librarians are most likely highly educated individuals providing educational and research support for faculty and students. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> It is safe to assume that the readers of this journal are well versed in LIS issues. However, an author should remember that the readers are academic librarians and will not necessarily be familiar with the details or practices of other types of libraries. Furthermore, an author writing for the <em>New Review of Academic Librarianship </em>should consider that the experiences of academic librarians in other countries might differ significantly from those in their own countries, and so provide some context and explanation. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Authors submitting to the <em>New Review of Academic Librarianship</em> should understand that the readership is international in scope and focused on theory and practice in academic libraries and information services targeted to faculty and students in colleges and universities. They should keep in mind regional and cultural considerations that may need to be explicated for readers from different regions. The readership expects high-level scholarship and research, as well as analyses that emphasize how LIS scholarship can be implemented in practices and services in academic libraries. &nbsp; <strong>Last updated:</strong> February 10, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
