The journal of Statistics and Applications (JSA) is published Half-Yearly. It publishes research and expository material about new developments in probability, statistics and their applications in medical, agricultural, econometrics, physical or social sciences, industry, commerce and government. Special tropics sections will appear frequently under \"Scatter Thoughts\" to focus attention on thought provoking issues that may affect statistics or on which statistics can make major impact in future.

The Journal of Statistics and Applications (JSA) is published Quarterly. It publishes research and expository material about new developments in probability, statistics and their applications in medical,agricultural, econometric, physical or social sciences, industry, commerce and government. Special Topics sections will appear frequently under “Scatter Thoughts” to focus attention on thought provoking issues that may affect statistics or on which statistics can make major impact in future. The topics discussed must appeal to a wider and general audience. Thoughtful letters in response to these special articles are also invited.
Submitting Articles to JSA
The editors of JSA strongly prefer all articles submissions as PDF files (printable on 8.5 x 11 size paper). Please submit a blinded, as well as an unblinded version to facilitate the review. A submission should be sent via Email (or mail two hardcopies and a disk containing the submitted paper) to one of the Chief Editors. A condition of submission is that the manuscript has not been previously published and is not under review for publication elsewhere.
It is preferred that you create your text in TEX/LaTEX (using “article” style) or Microsoft Word using 12-point Times New Roman type throughout. Boldface the title, headings and sub-headings, all in upper/lower type without using any italics or underlines. The title, numbered equations and tables, should be centered. Everything else must be aligned to the left without any indent. A double space above and below all headings is required.
While submitting hardcopies any photographs or illustrations must not include cuttings from printed matter or photocopies of any sort, as they are unsuitable for reproduction.
The main body of the article should be divided by appropriate numbered section and subsection headings (e.g., 1. Introduction, 2.1 Analysis of data), all in upper/lower bold type and aligned to the left. An Acknowledgment section may be included at the end of the article (before references list), to acknowledge financial assistance, assistance by individual colleagues, and any other pertinent information.
Manuscripts must generally be organized in the following manner:
(i) Title (bold face) and Author name(s) only [centered], (ii) Abstract and Key Words [centered], (iii) Article Text, (iv) Acknowledgments, (v) References, (vi) Appendices, (vii) Tables, (viii) Figures, and (ix) About the Author(s).
All references in the text must be cited by author surname and date, like (Smith, 1993) or Smith (1985b).Please list all the cited references at the end of the article, in alphabetical order of the surnames (writing initials first followed by the surnames), strictly in accordance with the Journal:
