Significance is a magazine published bimonthly by both the Royal Statistical Society and the American Statistical Association. Established in 2004, this journal features articles on topics of statistical interest presented at a level suited to the general audience. It is not a research journal and articles are not peer-reviewed. As of May 2012, the current editor is Julian Champkin. This publication replaced the Royal Statistical Society’s Series D ‘The Statistician’ journal.
As well as ordinary articles published in the magazine, it has “virtual issues” made available online. The website, http://www.significancemagazine.org/view/index.htm, was launched the same day as World Statistics Day in 2010 and includes news, videos and book reviews.
Members of both the Royal Statistical Society and the American Statistical Association receive issues of Significance when it publishes. It is also available by subscription in print, online and on iPad.
