Welcome to the New Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Time Series Analysis


  • Author: Statistics Views
  • Date: 21 January 2013

Robert Taylor takes over from Maurice Priestley as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Time Series Analysis (JTSA) in January 2013.

Robert received a first-class degree in Management Science and a Masters degree with distinction in Statistics from the University of Kent at Canterbury before taking a doctorate in non-stationary time series analysis from Cambridge University. He has previously held academic appointments at the Universities of York and Birmingham, and is currently Professor of Econometrics at the University of Nottingham where he is also Director of the Granger Centre for Time Series Econometrics. Robert’s research lies predominantly in the methodology of non-stationary time series analysis, with particular focus on unit roots, co-integration, seasonality, structural change, and non-constant variance models. Much of his recent research has focused on the use of bootstrap methods in these areas.

Robert has served on a number of editorial boards, but this is his first appointment as an EiC. It is a fresh challenge that he is relishing. He hopes to bring new innovations to the journal and the way it engages with its readership.

As Editor, Robert is keen to ensure that JTSA continues to publish high-quality papers, on both fundamental theory and applications, computationally-based papers, as well as review papers dealing with recent advances in major areas of the subject and short communications on theoretical developments. He would particularly like to expand the number of high-quality applications papers published in the journal. Proposals for special issues, perhaps publishing the best papers from a particular scientific meeting or on a particular cognate theme, be it methodological or covering the use and applications of time series methods in particular disciplines, are welcomed, as are authoritative review papers written by leading researchers. Robert encourages anyone with specific proposals for either a special issue of JTSA or a review paper to contact him directly at robert.taylor@nottingham.ac.uk with their proposal.
