About The Journal

Annals of Statistical Theory and Applications (ASTA) is the official journal of the Professional Statisticians Society of Nigeria, PSSN (formerly, Nigeria Statistical Society). The editorial board is comprised of Senior Professionals and practitioners in statistics across the globe with applied, computational, methodological and theoretical expertise. Their role is to ensure that the journal continues to provide an international forum for the discipline of Statistics.

The Annals of Statistical Theory and Applications is a biannual International Open-Access and double-blinded peer-reviewed International journal that publishes original research works in the theory and applications of statistics two times in a year. The first issue of ASTA in each year will appear in May while the second one will appear in November. Articles that contribute new research ideas in all areas of statistical science including social and economic applications, theoretical or computational papers that are related to probability or statistics are welcomed.
