LIS scholars and professionals who are conducting original research that appeals to a worldwide audience and who can contribute to the journal's regular columns are a good fit for this journal. The journal's authorship is from within and beyond the LIS community: "Contributions to the journal have come from staff or members of many different international organizations, including the United Nations, UNESCO, IFLA, and INTAMEL, and from library and information scientists in academia, government, industry, and other organizations."[15. "Invitation for Column Contributions."] The journal does not court student authors, and contributors seem to be well-established professionals in LIS and related organizations, but column editors do invite proposals, which may be a way for LIS students to explore publishing in this high-level journal. &nbsp; <h2>Audience analysis</h2> <hr /> <h4>About the publication's readers</h4> <strong>Publication circulation:</strong> Data not available. <strong>Audience location and language or cultural considerations:</strong> <em>International Information &amp; Library Review</em> has a worldwide scope and reach. Its audience includes "information scientists, librarians and other scholars and practitioners all over the world."[16. "Invitation for Column Contributions."] The journal is written in English for an international audience. Regional terms and practices should be explained. <strong>Reader characteristics:</strong> Readers are LIS scholars, professionals, and practitioners from around the world, as well as stakeholders in international organizations, such as the United Nations, UNESCO, IFLA, and INTAMEL,[17. "Invitation for Column Contributions."] who may not be in the LIS field but who are interested in international information-sharing practices and standards. <strong>Knowledge of LIS subject matter:</strong> Overall, readers will have an advanced understanding of LIS subject matter, but because readers are from all over the world and sometimes from outside of the field, jargon, regionalisms, and novel practices should be explained. <h4>Conclusion: Analysis of reader characteristics and their potential impact on authors</h4> Authors submitting to the <em>International Information &amp; Library Review</em> are writing for an international readership. Readers expect "timely articles on research and development in international and comparative librarianship, information sciences, information policy and information ethics, digital values and digital libraries."[18. "Invitation for Column Contributions."] They are interested in how LIS practice and theory are evolving around the world--on the international stage and in particular regions--and how this might have an impact on their own policies and practices. <strong>Last updated:</strong> April 2, 2018 <hr /> <h4>References</h4>
