Aim & Scope
Statistical Communications in Infectious Diseases1 applies statistical ideas to problems of infectious diseases, and takes a broad perspective, both theoretical and policy-oriented, on the role of statistics in infectious disease control efforts. The journal fosters much-needed rapid communication among statisticians on the best approaches to increasingly complex data on infectious disease, and between statisticians and policy makers on the role of statistics in this important and hotly-debated public policy area. Editors and editorial board members come from major centers of epidemics research and statistics around the world, such as Harvard, Imperial College London, Royal Melbourne Hospital, and Universidade de Sao Paulo. Articles on statistical methods, best practices, and policy implications will appeal to readers in biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, genetics, behavioral science, epidemic modeling, global health policy, and grassroots health practice.
