The Official Journal of the International Indian Statistical Association is Statistical Methodology
The IISA Executive Committee recently became aware that the current publisher Elsevier has decided to discontinue its operations for the official journal of IISA, Statistical Methodology after 33 volumes as of 31st December 2016. At this point the possibility to submit new manuscripts has been temporarily suspended. The IISA Executive Committee is looking into this matter and also exploring other options to continue the operations of the official journal.
Statistical Methodology aims to publish articles of high quality reflecting the varied facets of contemporary statistical theory as well as of significant applications. In addition to helping to stimulate research, the journal intends to bring about interactions among statisticians and scientists in other disciplines broadly interested in statistical methodology. The journal focuses on traditional areas such as statistical inference, multivariate analysis, design of experiments, sampling theory, regression analysis, re-sampling methods, time series, nonparametric statistics, etc., and also gives special emphasis to established as well as emerging applied areas. Emphasis is on importance, interest, and originality - formal novelty and correctness alone are not sufficient to warrant a publication.
Statistical Methodology contains original research papers, review articles, discussion papers as well as short communications on “teacher's corner” and “consultant's forum”. "Discussion Papers" are selected on the basis of their quality and relevance. The main emphasis is on importance, originality, and broad appeal to statistical readership. The discussion papers should present research at the forefront of statistical methods. Articles accepted for discussion will be published along with the comments from the experts. The journal also include papers on the development of novel methodology with potential applications, and papers on novel applications supported by statistical methodology. The journal especially encourages the submission of authoritative reviews of innovative statistical applications and noteworthy overview presentations from interdisciplinary conferences. All submitted manuscripts will undergo normal review process and the publication decision will be adjudged by quality, novelty, suitability and interest.
