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 team. 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, and writing referee reports. Topics of more specific interest to my research team include forecasting, data visualization and functional data, and local events such as meetups or statistics conferences.

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 also of interest to other research statisticians, and even researchers working in other areas of the mathematical sciences.

If you are looking for something, click the folder icon at the top left to see a tag cloud, or use the search facility in the left side bar. 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.
