Just out of curiosity, I find it interesting to know if there is a statistical journal potentially considering publishing articles of this type to be introduced in the following. As far as I am aware, there is a journal in economics called Journal of Mathematical Economics that, according to their aim-and-scope description, would even be interested in a submission that mathematically redevelops a known concept in a novel way; but such a paper would easily be considered not substantial enough elsewhere. I would like to know if there is a statistical journal having that property. The American Statistician is not considered here because, as far I can tell, they would prefer exposition papers with moderate technical contents.

  • $\begingroup$ Not sure exactly what you mean, but if it's a completely new proving method - let's say proving the asymptotic properties of maximum likelihood estimators in a wonderfully simple way using Fermt's theorem revealing deep links between number theory and statistics, then Annals of Statistics has occasionally taken that kind of thing. If it's more looking at something applied from a new perspective that gives new insights then various applied journals might consider it. $\endgroup$ – Björn Dec 21 '18 at 7:26
