The Joys of Publishing!

I owe a VERY BIG hat-tip to Arthur Charpentier (he of the Freakonometrics blog) for alerting me to this one!

Getting your work published can pose interesting challenges at the best of times. But what about at the worst of times? 

Rick Trebino, of the School of Physics at Georgia Tech., tells us "How to Publish a Scientific Comment in 1 2 3 Easy Steps". I just love it!

Here's how Rick's story begins:

The Future of Statistical Sciences Workshop

No doubt you know, already, that 2013 has been the International Year of Statistics. To that end, there's been a veritable smorgasbord of activities and events promoting the discipline, and the contributions of statisticians far and wide.

The capstone event for Statistics2013 is "The Future of Statistical Sciences Workshop", to be held in London (England) on 11 and 12 November.

This workshop
"...will showcase the breadth and importance of statistics and highlight the extraordinary opportunities for statistical research in the coming decade.
This invitation-only workshop will be an opportunity for presenters, all statisticians and organizers to think about where statistics should go as a discipline and the lessons learned in the past that will guide us into the future. During this unique event, statistical scientists and scientists from other disciplines will interact and chart a shared vision for the future."
There are some great speakers lined up for this two-day event, and although the workshop is invitation-only, you can register now for the associated webinar.

And don't forget The Unconference on the Future of Statistics!
