The South African Statistical Journal (abbreviated to South African Statist. J.) is the official journal of the South African Statistical Association and is published bi-annually. Manuscripts for publication should be submitted electronically – please refer to the guidelines.

The journal will publish innovative contributions to the theory and application of statistics. The applied option involves research into theoretical aspects identified through specific application needs and requirements. The applied option doesn’t allow only for standard application of known statistical techniques on data sets. The applied statistics option involves more application based research with some theoretical work, that is, new statistical techniques for a specific application. Authoritative review articles on topics of general interest which are not readily accessible in a coherent form, will be also be considered for publication. Articles on applications or of a general nature will be published in separate sections and an author should indicate which of these sections an article is intended for. An applications article should normally consist of the analysis of actual data and need not necessarily contain new theory. The data should be made available with the article but need not necessarily be part of it. Articles of general or non-technical nature will also be considered provided that the topic is of current interest to the theory, application or teaching of statistics. All papers are refereed.
British (UK-English) spelling and grammar is to be used for all manuscripts.
This journal is abstracted by Zentralblatt MATH.
