Canadian Journal of Statistics
Aims and Scope
The Canadian Journal of Statistics is the official journal of the Statistical Society of Canada. It has a reputation internationally as an excellent journal. The editorial board is comprised of statistical scientists with applied, computational, methodological, theoretical and probabilistic interests. Their role is to ensure that the journal continues to provide an international forum for the discipline of Statistics.
The journal seeks papers making broad points of interest to many readers, whereas papers making important points of more specific interest are better placed in more specialized journals. The levels of innovation and impact are key in the evaluation of submitted manuscripts.
Papers should have an introduction which is accessible to a broad audience and makes a compelling case that an important problem is being tackled.
Papers developing new methods should typically include real-data examples, as a route to establishing relevance and applicability. Appendices should be used for technical arguments, so that the main body of the paper is easy to follow.
