Austrian Journal of Statistics: Aims and Scope

The Austrian Journal of Statistics is published approximately quarterly by the Austrian Statistical Society. Its general objective is to promote and extend the use of statistical methods in all kind of theoretical and applied disciplines. Special emphasis is on methods and results in official or governmental statistics.

Original papers and review articles will be published in the Austrian Journal of Statistics if judged consistently with these general aims. All papers will be refereed. Special topics sections will appear from time to time. Each section will have as a theme a specialized area of statistical application, theory, or methodology. Technical notes or problems for considerations under Shorter Communications are also invited. A special section is reserved for book reviews.

One author of each article obtains 20 reprints. Members of the Austrian Statistical Society receive a copy of the Journal free of charge. Specific exemplars may be purchased from the Society. Articles will also be made available through the web.

Statistics: Theory and Applications
The section for theory and methods publishes articles that make original contributions to the foundations, theoretical development, and methodology of statistics and probability. Theory and Methods should be interpreted broadly to include all techniques relevant to statistics and probability. This may include computational and graphical methods as well as more traditional mathematical methods. The research reported should be motivated by a scientific or practical problem and illustrated by application of the proposed methodology to that problem. Illustration of techniques with real data is especially welcomed and strongly encouraged.
Applications and case studies are published if they present original articles which

Note that careful analysis of data of substantive importance may be published even there are no methodological innovations.

Official Statistics
The section for official statistics publishes articles which deal with conceptual methods and computational issues. The different fields covered include

Especially welcomed are articles which are concerned with relatively new areas like Of course, papers treating national as well as international concepts (e.g. EU-statistics) are of interest.
