Due to the international scope of this journal (with authors ranging from Cambridge University Library to University of Wyoming Libraries) and strong academic content, LIS authors will need to possess an authoritative voice and experience to contribute to the body of knowledge represented by this journal. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> No information available. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> United States.[13. SerialsSolutions. (2014). The Serials Librarian. <em>Ulrichsweb Global Serials Directory</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Ulrich's Periodicals Directory" href="http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1403626343892/67187" target="_blank">http://ulrichsweb.serialssolutions.com.libaccess.sjlibrary.org/title/1403626343892/67187</a>] As the journal is international in scope, contributors need to consider if their article is of interest to the readership and explain, or avoid, any references specific to an individual culture.[14. Informa UK Limited. (2014). The Serials Librarian: Aims &amp; scope. <em>Taylor &amp; Francis Online</em>. Retrieved from <a title="Serials Librarian Aims &amp; Scope" href="http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wser20#.U6mjtbGdROg" target="_blank">http://www.tandfonline.com/action/journalInformation?show=aimsScope&amp;journalCode=wser20#.U6mjtbGdROg</a>] <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers of <em>The Serials Librarian</em> will likely have advanced degrees and an active interest in all matters related to serials management. Subscribers are often members of North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) or other special interest group focusing on the promotion and effective management of serials. Subscribers seem to value well-researched and well-written articles that will help them in their work. Based on author affiliations, possible bias toward writings of authors without academic affiliation.[15. Informa UK Limited. (2014).

Informa UK Limited. (2014). The Serials Librarian: Aims &amp; scope. <em>Taylor &amp; Francis Online</em>.
