A blog by Rob J Hyndman

I was think­ing of writ­ing a book on doing research in sta­tis­tics. Instead, I decided to write a blog cov­er­ing the same mate­r­ial, plus other things that might be of inter­est to my research group. Top­ics cov­ered include LaTeX, R, writ­ing and prepar­ing a the­sis, writ­ing a jour­nal arti­cle, sub­mit­ting an arti­cle to a ref­er­eed jour­nal, how to con­vince edi­tors to pub­lish your work, writ­ing ref­eree reports, fore­cast­ing issues, and any­thing else that takes my fancy.

Unlike a printed book, the order­ing of mate­r­ial does not mat­ter very much, and this resource is meant to be browsed, searched and sub­scribed, rather than read in any par­tic­u­lar sequence. The tar­get audi­ence is my own research team, but I hope it is of broader inter­est to other research sta­tis­ti­cians, and even researchers work­ing in other areas of math­e­mat­i­cal science.

I also include posts that are of more lim­ited inter­est (either to the Aus­tralian sta­tis­tics com­mu­nity or for peo­ple work­ing in my own research area of forecasting).

If you are look­ing for some­thing, try the search box above, or click on the tag cloud below the search box. All recent addi­tions appear in reverse chrono­log­i­cal order on the front page. But the best way to read new mate­r­ial is to sub­scribe to the RSS feed.

I hope you will also book­mark the site and check here when­ever you are look­ing for infor­ma­tion on doing research in statistics.
