Editors of Chilean Journal of Statistics Plan First Volume
The editorial board of the Chilean Journal of Statistics (ChJS) plans to publish the first volume of the journal in 2010 in memory of Pilar Iglesias (1960–2007), who served as the president of the Chilean Statistical Society from 1998–2003. It will include works based on Bayesian statistics, and several well-known researchers in statistics and probability have been invited to make contributions. Guest editors will include Marcia Branco, Rosangela Loschi, Eduardo Gutiérrez-Peña, and Manuel Mendoza, with support from Fabrizio Ruggeri and Alicia Carriquiry.
The ChJS editorial board plans to publish one volume per year, with two issues in each volume. On some occasions, certain events or topics may be published in one or more special issues prepared by a guest editor.
The ChJS was launched in 2009 and is an official publication of the Chilean Statistical Society. It will take the place of Revista de la Sociedad Chilena de Estadística, which was published from 1981–2000. The ChJS is on the list of excellence research for Australia journals and has been ranked by the Australian Mathematical Society and Statistical Society of Australia.
The ChJS covers a broad range of topics in statistics, including research, survey and teaching articles, reviews, and material for statistical discussion. In particular, the ChJS considers timely articles organized into the following sections:
- Theory and methods
- Computation, simulation, and applications
- Case studies and surveys
- Development, evaluation, reviews, and validation of statistical software and algorithms
- Book reviews
- Review articles
- Short communications
- Letters to the editor
