Annals of Applied Statistics

Statistical research spans an enormous range from direct subject-matter collaborations to pure mathematical theory. The Annals of Applied Statistics, the newest journal from the IMS, is aimed at papers in the applied half of this range. Published quarterly in both print and electronic form, our goal is to provide a timely and unified forum for all areas of applied statistics.

Dozens of universities, research institutes, foundations, and scientific societies, including the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, have joined forces to celebrate 2013 as a special year for the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE 2013): http://mpe2013.org/ . The Annals of Applied Statistics has been publishing cutting edge research in the MPE area, including physical, ecological, and socio-economic aspects of our planet. As a prelude to MPE 2013, the December 2012 issue of AOAS will feature a special section dedicated to this theme.
