# Starting the Series B blog

Following discussions with several editors of Series B and support of the Research Section of the Royal Statistical Society, we are starting a blog on the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B, meaning opening a new media for discussions and comments on the papers published (or not published) in Series B, as well as statistical methodology, theory, and applications, the editorial choices of the journal, and wider statistical issues. All contributions are welcomed, if subject to editorial filtering for obvious reasons. By email to the Blog AEditor or through the comments. And note that LaTeX mathematical formulas like

$\int_0^\infty \exp\{-s^2/2\}\text{d}s = \sqrt{\pi/2}$

can be easily inserted by adding the word latex just after the \$ sign. (The favoured format for submission is in html! Using for instance latex2wp.)

## Author: xi'an

I am a professor of Statistics at Université Paris Dauphine, France, and University of Warwick, United Kingdom, with a definitely unhealthy (but so far not fatal) fascination for mountains and (easy) climbing, in particular for Scotland in Winter, an almost-daily run, and a reading list mainly centred at fantasy books… Plus a blog that often seems to take most of my time. Not that anyone forces me to edit it...!
