Guidelines for Manuscript Submission

International Statistical Review has adopted ScholarOne Manuscripts, for online manuscript submission and peer review. The new system brings with it a whole host of benefits including:

  • Quick and easy submission
  • Administration centralised and reduced
  • Significant decrease in peer review times

All submissions to the journal must be made online at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/insr.

Manuscripts previously submitted using former procedures will continue through the old system.

Manuscript submission is a step-by-step process needing little special preparation other than having all parts of the manuscript in an electronic format and having access to a computer with an Internet connection and a web-browser. To submit a manuscript to International Statistical Review, authors should go to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/insr, where they can upload the manuscript and any other material they would like to communicate to the editor. Full help and instructions are provided on-screen. As an author, you will be prompted for author and manuscript details and then to upload your manuscript file(s). In order to ensure that your manuscript conforms to journal style, please consult the ‘Notes for Authors’, which is located at the back of every issue, or the ‘Author Guidelines’, which can be found at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/10.1111/(ISSN)1751-5823/homepage/ForAuthors.html.

A completed submission will be confirmed by e-mail immediately and your paper will then enter the editorial process. Your manuscript will have a unique manuscript number and you can check the progress of your manuscript at any time by returning to http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/insr. When a decision is made, revisions can be submitted online, with an opportunity to view and respond to all comments.

Manuscript review will also be handled online. Reviewers will be given full instructions and access to the paper at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/insr. The review form and comments can be completed online and immediately made available to the Journal and the Editor.

Full support for both authors and reviewers is provided. Each page of the website has a ‘Get Help Now’ icon connecting directly to the online support system at http://mchelp.manuscriptcentral.com/gethelpnow/support.htm.

If you have any questions or experience any problems with your submission, please contact Mrs. Liliana Happel (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) at the Editorial Office.
