Teaching Statistics is aimed at teachers of students aged up to 19 who use statistics in their work. The emphasis is on teaching the subject and addressing problems which arise in the classroom. The journal seeks to support not only specialist statistics teachers but also those in other disciplines, such as economics, biology and geography, who make widespread use of statistics in their teaching. Teaching Statistics seeks to inform, enlighten, stimulate, correct, entertain and encourage. Contributions should be light and readable. Formal mathematics should be kept to a minimum.
Contributions are welcomed in the form of articles, notes, letters, problems, news, and smaller items such as poems, quotations or cartoons. Teaching Statistics is a refereed journal.
Articles may be of a general nature or aimed specifically at one of our specialist sections:
|Classroom Notes||-||shorter items containing good ideas worth sharing|
|Computing Corner||-||new developments and ideas in statistical software|
|Curriculum Matters||-||addressing curriculum issues nationally and internationally|
|Data Bank||-||interesting data sets and what to do with them|
|Historical Perspective||-||the lives of statisticians and history of statistics|
|Practical Activities||-||ideas for ‘hands-on’ classroom practicals in statistics|
Articles should be as concise as possible and will not normally be accepted if they exceed 3000 words in length or would occupy more than four pages of the journal. Diagrams, photographs and illustrations are particularly welcomed. Authors should examine carefully a recent issue of Teaching Statistics and conform to the journal’s style with respect to headings, summary, keywords, references, spellings and so on. It is not necessary, however, for authors to prepare articles in the two-column format used in the journal.
Initial submissions may be made electronically (Microsoft Word document, PC format) or, alternatively, as THREE paper copies. Diagrams, photographs and illustrations should be submitted electronically (TIF files strongly preferred) or as camera-ready copy.
The final version of the article, after attending to all referees’ and editor’s comments, must be submitted electronically (formats as above) and as TWO paper copies of the final typescript. An email attachment is usually satisfactory, alternatively a CD may be submitted.
Your article cannot be published until the publisher has received the appropriate signed license agreement. Within a few days of submission the corresponding author will receive an email from Wiley’s Author Services system which will ask them to log in and will present them with the appropriate license for completion.
