The South African Statistical Journal (SASJ) is the official journal of the South African Statistical Association and is published bi-annually. SASJ will switch to an open acces publishing policy on 1 January 2022. 

The Journal aims to publish innovative contributions to the theory and application of statistics. Articles of general or non-technical nature will also be considered provided that the topic is of current interest to the theory, application or teaching of statistics. Authoritative review articles on topics of general interest which are not readily accessible in a coherent form, will be also be considered for publication.

Manuscripts can be submitted online by clicking here. All papers are refereed through a double-blind peer review process.
