Title: Opportunities to Publish in Statistics in Medicine
Author(s): Joel B Greenhouse*
Companies: Carnegie Mellon University
Keywords: Case Studies; Good Pedagogy; Tutorials

Statistics in Medicine aims to influence practice in medicine and its associated sciences through the publication of papers on statistical and other quantitative methods. We seek papers that explain new methods and demonstrate their application, preferably through a substantive, real, motivating example or a comprehensive evaluation based on an illustrative example. Alternatively, we are also interested in papers that report on case-studies where creative use or technical generalizations of established methodology is directed towards a substantive application. Reviews of, and tutorials on, general topics relevant to the application of statistics to medicine are also of interest. The main criteria for publication are appropriateness of the statistical methods to a particular medical problem and clarity of exposition. This talk will discuss opportunities for the publication of examples of good pedagogical and good statistical practice, particularly as they contribute to enhancing communication between statisticians, clinicians and medical researchers.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
