It'€™s particularly fascinating to read accounts of triumphs and difficulties faced by others in school library positions in other countries, and present information on programs/technologies/practices that will be helpful in a variety of settings (rural, urban, university, grade school, etc.) Students are encouraged to submit work, and the open-access article per issue, one that covers a popular, engaging topic, is an exciting goal to reach for. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Not available. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> The journal editors hail from Florida[16. International Association of School Librarianship. (2013). <em>School Libraries Worldwide: Guidelines for Contributors</em>. Retrieved from <a title="School Libraries Worldwide Instructions for Authors" href="http://www.iasl-online.org/pubs/slw/slw_guidecontrib.html" target="_blank">http://www.iasl-online.org/pubs/slw/slw_guidecontrib.html</a>] and IASL is headquartered in Australia,[17. SerialsSolutions. (2014). School Libraries Worldwide. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>.

The submission guidelines firmly note that "€œAuthors need to be mindful of the international audience of the journal. In most cases, authors can use the library terminology that is used in their locale. However, when writing about schools and students, it is important to state the age of the students being educated in those schools." It'€™s also urged to explain terminology used to identify schools: lycee, high school, compulsory school, etc.[18. International Association of School Librarianship. (2013). <em>School Libraries Worldwide: Guidelines for Contributors</em>. Retrieved from <a title="School Libraries Worldwide Instructions for Authors" href="http://www.iasl-online.org/pubs/slw/slw_guidecontrib.html" target="_blank">http://www.iasl-online.org/pubs/slw/slw_guidecontrib.html</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers of the journal are interested in school librarianship and emerging thought/trends in the field. This is a positive journal exploring best practices and techniques that can benefit anyone working or studying school librarianship. Members of IASL include people who are concerned about school library media programs and services - librarians, school library media specialists, educators, publishers, and lay people. IASL is a worldwide organization that, in addition to providing an international forum for discussing school librarianship issues, works with other professional association to provide guidance and development for school library programs. The overall goal is creating effective programs: this is a very professional, respected, positive publication that strongly believes in its mission and uses the journal to spread the education.[19.

Retrieved from <a title="School Libraries Worldwide" href="http://www.iasl-online.org/pubs/slw/" target="_blank">http://www.iasl-online.org/pubs/slw/</a>] <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Strong, but, as with the caution on explaining the age of students you'€™re writing about, authors should consider explaining any technical LIS jargon, as it might be used differently in other countries.[20. International Association of School Librarianship. (2013). <em>School Libraries Worldwide: Guidelines for Contributors</em>.
