Canadian Journal of Statistics – Call for Papers for Special Issue on Covid-19: Statisticians in Action

The Canadian Journal of Statistics plans to publish a special issue devoted to “Covid-19: Statisticians in Action”.

We aim to showcase statistical research on the design and analysis of Covid-19 studies, discuss challenges posed by Covid-19 data, identify emerging issues, and demonstrate the importance of a strong statistical presence in collaborations with public health researchers and other scientists studying the pandemic.

We invite the submission of research articles, reviews, or focused discussions. We welcome papers on a broad range of topics, including the design and analysis of specific types of studies, the analysis of disease surveillance data, statistical issues related to demographic, epidemiological and genetic studies of the disease, and to the evolution of the pandemic and its impact on public health and the economy.

The submission deadline is 31 December 2020. Papers may be submitted here.
