What kind of papers are appropriate for SS?

We publish papers in all areas of statistics: theory, computation, methodology, and applications.

How should papers be written?

Papers should be written in the same style as in typical statistical journals such as Statistical Science, the International Statistical Review, discussion papers in JRSS Series B, the Annals of Statistics, or the Journal of the American Statistical Association. Since the range of topics is wide, make sure that the abstract and Introduction are clear and can be read by a diverse audience.
