The journal does not have article processing charges (APCs) nor article submission charges

The goal of the CREBSS journal is to demonstrate how statistical science, research design and analysis methods play important roles in economy, business and society. The journal targets the current issues regarding the official statistics data production, and discusses the broad variety of applied statistical problems that might be outcomes of scientific survey research design, experimental design or observational study in economy, business and for different social issues, respecting the overall turbulent influences caused by the modern ICT and software development.

In this respect, the CREBSS journal fosters the exchange of ideas, experience and knowledge among statisticians.

Papers submitted for publication should be original theoretical, practical and applied papers. The journal also publishes case studies describing innovative applications and critical reviews of statistical theory.

The anonymous double-blind peer review by the two independent reviewers is applied to all the papers.

Why submit
The CREBSS journal is a good opportunity for publication of research focusing either on statistical theory or on statistical methods applications in economics, business and social issues. Areas such as finance and commerce, management, marketing, and also in agriculture, industry, construction, engineering, demography, psychology, sociology, law, politics, opinion polling, government, education, biomedical and physical sciences, health and medicine, pharmaceutics, kinesiology, ecology, environment, tourism, sports, leisure, ICT and quality issues are welcome. Statistical data collection, processing, compilation, dissemination, and data exploration and analysis, with organizations, regions, countries, or persons as possible units or levels of the analysis, all might be of interest. Since any interesting topic and applications of statistics are welcome, there are no restrictions to subject matters. Papers emphasising current concerns regarding statistical theory and challenging applied problems in multi- and cross-discipline issues (such as computational statistics, data mining and pattern recognition, simulation modelling, or related to optimization, mathematical programming, etc.), resulting with new statistical approaches are of special interest. It is expected that papers are methodologically well sounded, and that real life problems are treated, showing novel solutions.
