"Policies," <em>Student Research Journal,</em> accessed March 16, 2018, <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"></a>.] "Research manuscripts should investigate an original idea or set of ideas or circumstance, and may be empirical, critical, or theoretical in nature. Critical essays should analyze and contribute an interpretation, or analytical perspective, or new theme or concept to a theory or body of work, and may address a collection of published scholarship." For book reviews, writers should contact the editor-in-chief to ensure the book fits the journal's scope and is available for reviewing. There is also a list of suggested titles.[7. "Aims &amp; Scope."] <strong>Submission and review process:</strong> Manuscripts are accepted on a rolling basis. The editor-in-chief reviews manuscripts, consulting with the editorial advisory board as warranted. If approved, the manuscript is submitted to at least two peer reviewers for double-blind review. The editor-in-chief contacts the author, advising if the manuscript is accepted, needs minor or major revisions, or is rejected. Authors submit manuscripts electronically through the journal's review system.[8. "Policies."] <strong>Editorial tone:</strong> The tone of <em>SRJ </em>is scholarly, and the journal follows the "conventions of scholarly discourse."[9. "About This Journal."] <strong>Style guide used:</strong>  <em>Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association</em>, 6th ed.[10. "Style Guide &amp; Formatting Requirements," <em>Student Research Journal,</em> accessed March 16, 2018, <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"></a>.] <h4>Conclusion: Evaluation of publication's potential for LIS authors</h4> <em>SRJ</em> is an ideal peer-reviewed journal for LIS graduate students. The journal is produced by a team of SJSU graduate students and a faculty advisory board, which includes prominent SJSU faculty. Submitting to <em>SRJ</em> offers an opportunity for students to their best work to LIS community leaders, to market themselves as an emerging LIS professional, and to begin forging professional relationships. <em>SRJ</em> offers a prime opportunity for LIS students writing about archives and records management or museum studies, as it publishes articles in these areas as well as in library and information science. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Specific data are not available, but the journal's website does indicate the number of full-text downloads for each article.[11. "Most Popular Articles," <em>Student Research Journal,</em> accessed March 16, 2018, <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"></a>.] <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> <em>SRJ</em> is aimed at both LIS students and the larger LIS community, and since its inception in 2011, it has attracted student authors from a wide variety of other LIS graduate schools. <em>SRJ </em>has a worldwide reach because it is an open-access journal and because the SJSU School of Information attracts U.S. and international students.[12. "MLIS Student Profiles," SJSU School of Information, accessed March 16, 2018, <a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener"></a>.] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers of the publication are graduate students, either new to LIS or professionals returning to school, as well as seasoned professionals. <em>SRJ</em> publishes original research and critical reviews and essays, so readers will expect intellectual rigor and fresh perspectives on issues in library and information sciences, archives, museums, records management, and technology. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Because this publication accepts submissions about virtually all areas of information science and targets LIS professionals in all stages of the profession, it would be wise to briefly introduce concepts and explain any specialized terminology for the benefit of those outside of one's area of expertise.[13. "Policies."] <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> LIS students and professionals are a diverse group, with interdisciplinary workplaces and interests. <em>SRJ</em> publishes papers on virtually any topic related to LIS, making this publication a possibility for students writing on many subjects. When considering submitting to <em>SRJ</em>, a scholarly bent will be critical. Evaluate your manuscript's contribution to graduate research and its promotion of intellectual inquiry. Critical pieces and original studies of emerging issues such as open-source LIS models, collection development, information literacy, information-seeking behavior, user experience, issues in electronic records and digital asset management, or a host of other areas would be welcome here. <strong>Last updated:</strong> March 16, 2018. <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
