The IMS Bulletin is published 8 times a year (January/February, March, April/May, June/July, August, September, October/November and December). Established in 1972, its print circulation is approximately 4,000, and downloads average about 8,000. It is available as a PDF download from the archives page.

The IMS website, (established 1996) is updated daily. It receives over 30,000 visits per month.

The IMS Bulletin and web pages are the official news organ and web site of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. Acceptance of advertising is subject to approval by the Editor.

Requirements for print ads

We accept electronic files sent via email to EPS or PDF (grayscale with all fonts embedded) preferred. All images must be high resolution (at least 300dpi). If you’re not sure whether your ad meets these requirements, please send it anyway, we can let you know.

For full-page advertisements, we offer two sizes: ads that are sized to fit within the normal Bulletin page margins, as well as complete page ads that extend to the edge of the page, which need to be supplied with a 1/8″ bleed. Both options are the same price. Half-page and 1/3-page ads are also available in horizontal or vertical options, for the same price: see the dimensions below.
