Occasionally, the journal will publish a guest-edited special section, such as Looking Back, Looking Forward: Fifty Years of Oral History.[7.

"Information for Authors."] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> There are many opportunities for LIS professionals to contribute to this publication. Guidance can be provided about cataloging and preservation methodologies for oral history collections. LIS professionals can also weigh in on the ethics of information, including collection, copyright, distribution, and access. LIS professionals should also be aware that the Oral History Association has published goals, guidelines, and standards for oral history interviews.[11. "Principles for Oral History and Best Practices for Oral History," Oral History Association, accessed February 16, 2018, <a href="http://www.oralhistory.org/about/principles-and-practices/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://www.oralhistory.org/about/principles-and-practices/</a>.] Prospective authors should also explore the journal's blog.[12. "About the Blog," oralhistoryreview.org, accessed February 16, 2018, <a href="http://oralhistoryreview.org/about/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">http://oralhistoryreview.org/about/</a>.] <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Oral History Association members receive a free subscription and online access to current and back issues. Other circulation data are not available.[12. <em>The Oral History Review</em><em>,</em> Oral History Association.] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> The Oral History Association is located in the United States but has an international membership. <em>The Oral History Review</em> is published in English but "reflects the international scope of the field and encourages work from international authors and about international topics."[14. "Information for Authors."] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers have a high knowledge of and interest in oral history, from both a local and an international perspective. Readers will expect articles that are well-written and original and that exemplify the best practices and principals in oral history research and practice, as established by the Oral History Association. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> This is not strictly an LIS publication, although librarians do read it and contribute to its content. Articles should avoid LIS jargon and be directed toward a broad, international readership. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> <em>The Oral History Review</em> is written for an academic and international audience, so writers who contribute should be sure that their articles exhibit the knowledge and novelty that the experienced readership has come to expect. This could make it a difficult journal for oral history novices to write for. LIS professionals and students who have expert knowledge of the field of oral history and its preservation and archival techniques would find a good outlet in this journal. <strong>Last updated:</strong> February 16, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
