Aims and Scope

Launched in the 1990s, reflecting the increasing importance of statistics in various fields of scientific research, the series aims to foster the application of statistical methodology in these disciplines. It is vital in the modern information era, with a prevalence of large and complex datasets, that researchers, practitioners and students from nearly all sciences have a solid understanding of statistical methods and their application.

The books in the series are necessarily very applied in nature, presenting overviews of statistical methodology with applications in fields as diverse as medical research, epidemiology, biology, genetics, ecology, actuarial science, social and behavioral science, and engineering. An emphasis is placed on describing the methods with sufficient rigor whilst assuming little in terms of the mathematical sophistication of the reader. The inclusion of detailed case studies and worked examples, preferably implemented using recognized statistical software, is therefore essential.
