Statistics in Society

Applied Statistics

Editors: A. Chevalier, UK; S. Day, UK

Editors: R. Chandler, UK; M. S. Ridout, UK

Statistics in Society publishes papers that demonstrate clear statistical thinking on issues of importance to society in an accessible way. Publishing articles across the full range of social disciplines, including education, sociology, medicine, the law, demography, government, politics and economics, the journal is aimed at a wide statistical audience. Its emphasis is on quantitative approaches to problems in the real world, rather than on the exposition of technical detail, and on topical statistical issues. Reviews, discussions of data collection methods and ethical issues also feature in the journal.

Applied Statistics is a journal of international repute for statisticians both inside and outside the academic world. The journal is concerned with papers which deal with novel solutions to real life statistical problems by adapting or developing methodology, or by demonstration of the proper application of new or existing statistical methods to them.

by Yair Neuman, Ophir Nave, and Eran Dolev

Complexity is a cross-disciplinary journal focusing on the rapidly expanding science of complex adaptive systems. It interrelates several fields by promoting discussion of common problems and their solutions among disciplines. Articles offer recent research results, educational overviews, new theoretical insights and reviews. Articles deal with methodological themes such as chaos, genetic algorithms, cellular automata, neural networks, and evolutionary game theory. Papers treating applications in any area of natural science or human endeavour are welcome, and especially encouraged are papers integrating conceptual themes and applications that cross traditional interdisciplinary boundaries. ISSN 1076-2787

The Australian & New Zealand Journal of Statistics is divided into two sections. The Applications Section publishes papers demonstrating applications of statistical techniques to problems faced by users of statistics in the sciences, government and industry. The Theory and Methods Section publishes papers containing original contributions to the theory and methodology of statistics, econometrics and probability.

Journals Statistica Neerlandica

Teaching Statistics

Journal of The Netherlands Society for Statistics and Operations Research

Published on behalf of The Teaching Statistics Trust

Editor: P. H. Franses, The Netherlands

Editor: Roger Johnson, USA

Statistica Neerlandica publishes research and expository material about new developments in probability, statistics and operations research, and their applications in medical, agricultural, econometric, physical or social sciences and industry, commerce and government. The emphasis is on clarity, accessibility for the general reader, and applicability. In particular, Statistica Neerlandica shows how, for certain practical problems, statistics or operations research can play a valuable role in decision making.

Teaching Statistics is aimed at teachers of students aged up to 19 who use statistics in their work. The journal seeks to support not only specialist statistics teachers but also those in other disciplines, such as mathematics, economics, business studies geography and the sciences, who make widespread use of statistics in their teaching. In the USA, teachers will find it useful in teaching AP Statistics and the data analysis aspects of the NCTM Standards. Teaching Statistics seeks to inform, enlighten, stimulate, correct, entertain and encourage.
