Journal Series A


Series A
Statistics in society

Impact Factor: 1.785 ISI Journal Citation Reports © Ranking: 2018: 32/123 (Statistics & Probability)

Series A looks at how statistical thinking, design and analyses play a vital role in all walks of life and benefit society. Subject matter is not restricted. For example, medicine, business and commerce, industry, economics and finance, education and teaching, physical and biomedical sciences, the environment, the law, government and politics, demography, psychology, sociology and sport all fall within its remit.

The journal’s emphasis is on clearly written quantitative approaches to problems in the world rather than the exposition of technical detail. Of particular interest are papers on topical or contentious statistical issues, that give reviews or exposés of current statistical concerns, and papers that contribute to our understanding of important substantive questions. Historical, professional and biographical contributions are also published, as are discussions of methods of data collection and of ethical issues.
