ASA Journals in Need of Editors

Journals are vital to the ASA’s mission of promoting the practice and profession of statistics, and editors are at the heart of ensuring our publications continue to be world leaders in statistics research and applications.

If you or someone you know would be a great fit for one of the following editorships, send your application or nomination to ASA Journals Manager Eric Sampson by January 11, 2021.

Editor, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Applications and Case Studies
Term: 2022–2024, with the transition beginning July or August 2021

The JASA has long been considered the premier journal of statistical science. The Applications and Case Studies section publishes original articles that present analyses for real data sets that are statistically innovative and scientifically and practically relevant; contribute substantially to a scientific field through the use of sound statistical methods; present new and useful data, such as a new life table for a segment of the population or a new social or economic indicator; and use empirical tests to examine or illustrate an important application of a valuable statistical technique.

Co-Editors, Journal of Business & Economic Statistics
Term: 2022–2024, with the transition beginning July–September 2021

JBES publishes a range of articles, primarily applied statistical analyses of microeconomic-, macroeconomic-, forecasting-, business-, and finance-related topics. More general papers in statistics, econometrics, computation, simulation, or graphics are also appropriate if they are immediately applicable to the journal’s general topics of interest. Articles published in JBES contain significant results, high-quality methodological content, and excellent exposition. They also usually include a substantive empirical application.

Editor, Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics
Term: 2022–2024, with the transition beginning July or August 2021

JCGS presents the latest techniques on improving and extending the use of computational and graphical methods in statistics and data analysis. Established in 1992, this journal contains cutting-edge research, data, surveys, and more on numerical graphical displays and methods and perception. Articles are written for readers who have a strong background in statistics but are not necessarily experts in computing.

Editor, Journal of Nonparametric Statistics
Term: 2022–2024, with the transition beginning July or August 2021

JNPS provides a medium for the publication of research and survey work in nonparametric statistics and related areas. Both the theory and applications of nonparametric statistics are covered in the journal. Research applying nonparametric methods to medicine, engineering, technology, science, and humanities is welcome, provided the novelty and quality level are of the highest order.

Editor, Journal of Statistics and Data Science Education
Term: 2022–2024, with the transition beginning July or August 2021

The Journal of Statistics and Data Science Education disseminates knowledge for the improvement of statistics education at all levels, including elementary, secondary, post-secondary, post-graduate, continuing, and workplace education. It is distributed electronically and, in accord with its broad focus, publishes articles that enhance the exchange of a diversity of interesting and useful information among educators, practitioners, and researchers around the world. The intended audience includes anyone who teaches statistics, as well as those interested in research on statistical and probabilistic reasoning.

Editor, Statistics and Public Policy
Term: 2022–2024, with the transition beginning July or August 2021

SPP is an open-access journal with papers that apply strong statistical methodology to problems in the realm of public policy and/or relevant political science. Articles may address international, national, or local policy questions, and the emphasis is on the application, rather than methodological novelty.

Editor, Technometrics
Term: 2023–2025, with a full year’s transition beginning 2022

Technometrics contributes to the development and use of statistical methods in physical, chemical, and engineering sciences, as well as information sciences and technology. These include developments on the interface of statistics and computer science such as data mining, machine learning, and large databases. The journal places a premium on clear communication among statisticians and practitioners of these sciences and an emphasis on the application of statistical concepts and methods to problems that occur in these fields.
