I have written an 8-pages technical paper (more theoretical than applied) in statistics. I only know of two journals (Biometrika and Statistics and Probability Letters) that publish such short communications and I was wondering whether there are other journals that take this kind of articles.

  • $\begingroup$ What is the general statistical area? Plenty of recent JASA articles are in the 7-11 page range. As long as the contribution is strong, I wouldn't worry about the length so much. First and foremost, reputable journals want to publish good contributions that advance the field. $\endgroup$ – cardinal Jul 4 '14 at 17:27
  • $\begingroup$ @cardinal Thank you for your comment. The topic is on mathematical statistics but the results are not of the JASA type IMO. In my case, I think I need a medium journal (I know that if the results are strong enough, even AOS would take it but, unfortunately, this may not be the case of my manuscript). $\endgroup$ – Zhao Jul 4 '14 at 17:30

A possible outlet for this is the recently created journal Stat:


The Editorial Board is good and they seem to provide quick peer-reviews.
