Submissions to the Stata Journal
We welcome submissions to the Stata Journal.
Please see the information on types of submissions, which should help you to judge the appropriateness of your submission.
We prefer that articles be submitted in LaTeX. We wrote Getting started with the Stata Journal, which contains the Stata Journal document class and Stata output package along with examples for authors new to the Stata Journal, for your reference.
ASCII and Word contributions will be accepted.
When submitting your article for review, please include the following:
Submissions should be sent to email@example.com. Manuscripts will be acknowledged by the editor upon receipt. After a preliminary editorial review, articles will be sent to reviewers who have expertise in the subject of the article. The Stata Journal uses a blind review system. The review process generally takes 3–6 months. Authors may contact the editor at any time to check the status of their manuscript.
Submission to the Stata Journal implies that (a) identical or substantially the same material is not currently under review by another academic journal, and (b) the authors will not submit such material to another journal before they receive a decision from the Stata Journal.
Copyright information: Contributors must sign and send to StataCorp a copy of the Stata Journal Contributor Assignment Agreement before any article can be published. If an article has multiple authors, each author must sign the agreement. While you are waiting for a decision from the Journal, we are happy if you make the same material available via personal, institutional, or collective websites as a draft or working paper (or the equivalent) in your field. Such material should be flagged as under review by the Stata Journal. Papers published in the Stata Journal may be made available electronically according to the terms of the Contributor Assigment Agreement. We are happy if you distribute copies of your paper as reprints or photocopies in accordance with the Contributor Assigment Agreement. If the article is not accepted for publication, the Contributor Assignment Agreement will terminate and become void. You will be notified if this occurs.
Although the Stata Journal focuses on Stata-specific application of a general technique, the restriction above does not prohibit you from submitting your technique to another journal with a different focus.
