Statistical Consulting Section, Stat Seek Articles

1 February 2022 No Comment

The Section on Statistical Consulting, in conjunction with the journal Stat, is soliciting articles for a special issue, “Statistical Consulting and Collaboration,” with coeditors Robyn L. Ball, H. Dean Johnson, Lee-Ann Hayek, Xiaoyue Niu, Joseph Rigdon, and Hao Helen Zhang.

A subcommittee of the section has worked for the last three years to establish a forum for practicing statisticians at all levels to discuss various aspects of the practice. This special issue is an opportunity for consultants and collaborators to showcase their work.

This collection will encompass two broad categories of research articles. Section 1, “Innovative Application of Statistical Techniques,” will focus on impactful and innovative statistical approaches, especially as they relate to challenges encountered with data or scientific questions that require a nuanced approach. Section 2, “Collaborative Skill Development,” will focus on essential techniques and skills for collaborations, including case studies, strategies for effective communication, strategies for building successful collaborative relationships, and approaches to mentoring and/or training fellow statisticians and data scientists. For details, see the formatting requirements for these submission types.

The goal of the special issue is to promote an exchange of ideas relevant to the practice by providing a written forum for consulting and collaborative statisticians to influence best practices in areas key to statistics. As many consulting statisticians have considerable knowledge, skills, and experiences associated with the practice of statistics, this special issue of Stat is a venue to share this information.

Stat is known for its high-quality articles and rapid review process, with accepted papers published within 30 days of submission. Submissions are open until June 1 for original works and should be made via ScholarOne.
