    Submission of Manuscripts

    Instructions for Authors

    Open Statistics encourages the submission of substantial full-length bodies of work. There are no specific length restrictions for the overall manuscript or individual sections; however, we urge the authors to present and discuss their findings in a concise and accessible manner.

    Manuscripts should be submitted to the journal via online submission system Editorial Manager available for this journal a https://www.editorialmanager.com/stat. In case of problems, please contact the Editorial Office of this journal at Natalia.Michalak@degruyter.com.

    Manuscripts have to be written in LATEX, AMS-TEX, AMS-LATEX or MS Word. A PDF file may be supplied for the peer-review stage.
    During submission please check if the resulting manuscript in the system is compiled properly (especially in case of submissions in TEX) or provide a PDF version of the manuscript.

    For detailed information, please see Instruction for Authors.

    Unpublished material: Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described is not copyrighted, published or submitted elsewhere, except in abstract form. The corresponding author should ensure that all authors approve the manuscript before its submission.
    Ethical conduct of research: The authors must describe and confirm safeguards to meet ethical standards when applicable. See Editorial Policy for details.
    Conflict of interest: When authors submit a manuscript, they are responsible for recognizing and disclosing financial and/or other conflicts of interest that might bias their work and/or could inappropriately influence his/her judgment. If no specified acknowledgement is given, the Editors assume that no conflict of interest exists. Authors are encouraged to fill in the ICMJE Conflicts of Interest Form (available here) and send it in the electronic format to the Managing Editor.
    Copyright: All authors retain copyright, unless – due to their local circumstances – their work is not copyrighted. The copyrights are governed by the Creative-Commons Attribution Only license (CC-BY) which is compliant with Plan-S. We may also publish a paper under CC-BY-NC-ND license on author's request. The corresponding author grants the journal exclusive license for commercial use of the article, by signing the License to Publish. Scanned copy of license should be sent to the journal, as soon as possible.
    Data distribution: We encourage authors to make the data available for the public. We offer a possibility to publish additional files together with the article as Supplementary Materials. Data and other materials can be also stored using one of the repositories such as Open Science Framework (OSF, https://osf.io), preferably selected from those indexed on FAIRsharing.org or re3data.org.
    Authorship: Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study. All those who have made significant contributions should be listed as co-authors. Where there are others who have participated in certain substantive aspects of the research project, they should be named in an Acknowledgement section. The corresponding author should ensure that all appropriate co-authors (according to the above definition) and no inappropriate co-authors are included in the author list of the manuscript, and that all co-authors have seen and approved the final version of the paper and have agreed to its submission for publication.
    Peer Review process: The Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the studies reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal. Manuscripts deemed unsuitable (insufficient originality or of limited interest to the target audience) are returned to the author(s) without review. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. Research articles and communications are refereed by a minimum of two reviewers, review papers by at least three. Authors are requested to suggest persons competent to review their manuscript. However, please note that this will be treated only as a suggestion, and the final selection of reviewers is exclusively the Editor's decision. The final decision of acceptance in made by Managing Editor or, in case of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.
    Scientific Misconduct: This journal publishes only original manuscripts that are not also published or going to be published elsewhere. Multiple submissions/publications, or redundant publications (re-packaging in different words of data already published by the same authors) will be rejected. If they are detected only after publication, the journal reserves the right to publish a Retraction Note. In each particular case Editors will follow COPE's Code of Conduct and implement its advice.
