The International Journal of Statistical Sciences (IJSS) publishes papers, review articles and
research works in all fields of Statistics. Only original contributions, which are not published in any language-media and
are not submitted for publication elsewhere, are accepted for peer review. The language of the journal is English.
Submission of Papers
Three hard copies of manuscripts along with one soft copy in diskette in MS Word
or LaTex should be submitted to the Executive Editor. The papers should be typed on good quality bond paper
of A4 format with 1" margins (right, left, top, bottom), double-spaced, using Times Roman 12 point font. Electronic version
of the manuscript may be submitted through e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org instead of diskette.
Organization of the paper
The arrangement of manuscripts should be as follows:
· The cover
page should contain the following information: (i) the title; (ii) the name(s) and academic or professional affiliation(s)
of the author(s); (iii) the mailing addresses of the author(s); and (iv) fax and e-mail address of the corresponding author.
should contain the following information: (i) the title; (ii) abstract; (iii) keywords (about 5 words) followed by AMS/STMA
subject classification; (iv) main text; (v) acknowledgments (if necessary); (vi) references; and (vii) appendix (if necessary).
should be kept limited within 10 printed pages. Simultaneous use of tables and graphs (figures) should be avoided. Descriptions,
explanations and interpretations should be as precise and concise as possible. Colored graphics are not generally acceptable.
References should contain
the name(s) of the author(s) together with their initial(s), the year of publication in parentheses, the title of the paper
and the title of the journal (both in italic), volume number and the page range. References to books should contain the name(s)
of the author(s), the year of publication, title (in italic), (the names of editors), the publisher name and location. If
several papers by the same author(s) and of the same year are cited, a, b, c, etc. should be put after the year of publication.
The references should be listed in alphabetic order.
The manuscripts will be submitted to two referees for review. The authors will
receive an unsigned copy of the referees' reports, if necessary. Once accepted for publication, the corresponding author is
encouraged to send the final version of the manuscript in MS Word or LaTex in a diskette/e-mail along with two
hard copies. Rejected manuscripts will not be returned.
