JOS publishes research articles on survey methodology and other aspects of production of official statistics. The intended readers are researchers and practitioners in academia, government, business or research organisations with an interest in survey methodology and production of official statistics.
Articles on the following topics are included:
methodologies and policies for the collection, processing, and analysis of data and the presentation and dissemination of statistics, based on traditional surveys, censuses, registers, or new and emerging types of data sources. Articles may present theoretical and methodological contributions, relevant applications of existing methods, comparisons of different methods, or authoritative reviews.
Such topics include:
Apart from research articles, the journal also considers research notes, comments on recent articles, and other communications in a shorter format for publication.
Research notes report interesting findings ready for publication. They should be shorter than regular articles. The requirements for completeness and detail in the analysis and presentation are less strict, but are subject to the same high standards as for other articles and the same review process applies.
Letters to the editor provides a forum for airing opinions on issues pertinent to the statistical community or commentaries on articles that have appeared in the journal.
JOS has a book review section and an index that appears at the end of every volume.
Sciendo archives the contents of this journal in Portico - digital long-term preservation service of scholarly books, journals and collections.
