Journal and newsletter
The IASI maintains two regular publications: the Journal "Estadística" and the NewsletterOn the other hand, special publications with the papers presented in Seminars on Applied Statistics and in Meetings on Public Statistics were made in the past.
Now those papers are disseminated through this web page, and the authors are invited to submit them for possible publication in the Journal "Estadística".
Estadística is the scientific journal of the Inter-American Statistical Institute (IASI). It aims to publish contributions about themes in theoretical and applied Statistics, giving emphasis to original applications and the solution of problems of wide interest to Statisticians in the American Region.
Applications papers should include a careful analysis of the problem at hand, have a clear presentation in order to contribute to the dissemination of methodology and good statistical practice, and contain adequate interpretation of the outcomes.
Applications papers may also aim to contribute to a better understanding of the scope and limitations of the methods considered. Applications papers may tackle problems in any area of interest including public statistics, health, education, industry, finance, etc.
Theoretical contributions without a corresponding application will be published if they represent a significant advance in the knowledge of the discipline at the international level and contain a clear indication of how the methods developed may be useful for relevant applications.
This publication has been registered by the following repertories: the Current Index to Statistics (CIS) of the American Statistical Association (ASA) and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS), Zentalblatt-Math, and the "Sistema Regional de Información en línea para Revistas Científicas de América Latina, el Caribe, España y Portugal (LATINDEX)".
The editorial board of Estadística is of international scope, and is composed of outstanding statisticians.
If you wish to submit a paper, please send two copies by e-mail to the Editor in Chief, one of them anonymous. Editorial process is double-blind, so the name and the address of the author to whom further correspondence is to be sent must appear only on one of the copies.
Papers will be accepted in Word, in LaTeX, or in Scientific WorkPlace. The specific regulations for the presentation of originals can be found in Guidelines for authors.
