Established in 1996, the Journal of Statistical Software publishes articles, book reviews, code snippets, and software reviews on the subject of statistical software and algorithms.  The contents are freely available on-line.  For both articles and code snippets the source code is published along with the paper.

Statistical software is the key link between statistical methods and their application in practice.  Software that makes this link is the province of the journal, and may be realized as, for instance, tools for large scale computing, database technology, desktop computing, distributed systems, the World Wide Web, reproducible research, archiving and documentation, and embedded systems.

We attempt to present research that demonstrates the joint evolution of computational and statistical methods and techniques.  Implementations can use languages such as C, C++, S, Fortran, Java, PHP, Python and Ruby or environments such as Mathematica, MATLAB, R, S-PLUS, SAS, Stata, and XLISP-STAT.

There are currently 628 articles, 42 code snippets, 112 book reviews, 6 software reviews, and 14 special volumes in our archives.  These can be browsed or searched.  You can also subscribe for notification of new articles.

As a matter of principle, JSS charges no author fees or subscription fees.  Our editors, reviewers, and programmers are volunteers.  UCLA Statistics contributes support staff, website maintenance, website hosting, and some graduate student support.  Because of our success and growth we do need more resources in the future.  You can support us by becoming a member of the Foundation for Open Access Statistics at, and by contributing on their donation page.
