ProbStat Forum is an e-journal aiming at the rapid publication of quality research papers in Probability, Statistics and Optimization.

Aims and Scope. Broadly, the journal will consider papers in theory, methodology and applications in the above three areas. Every effort will be made to complete the review process of a submitted paper in four months and publish the accepted ones within another month.

Call for Papers. Researchers in Probability, Statistics and Optimization are cordially invited to submit papers to ProbStat Forum. Manuscripts submitted to the journal are considered for publication with the understanding that the same work has not been published/ considered for publication elsewhere. The length of manuscripts can be: up-to 15 pages in the case of papers, and up-to 25 pages in the case of enlarged variants of talks given in a conference and published in short in the proceedings.

Manuscript Style. The manuscripts should be prepared in A4-size paper with one inch margins around, font size 12 point, doublespace line separation and contain the following in that order (i) Title (ii) Name (s) of author (s) and their address (es) and e-mail id, (iii) An Abstract of not more than 10 lines (iv) Key words (not more than 10) (v) AMS Subject Classification numbers (vi) various sections starting with introduction and finally (vii) references. Acknowledgements if any, should be given immediately before the references. In the text the references should be in the style ".... Feller (1971) ....". The list of references should be in alphabetical order and the style is: Feller, W (1971). An Introduction to Probability Theory and Its Applications, 2nd Edition, Wiley, New York. A paper should be listed as Maejima, M., and Sato, K. (1999). Semi-self-similar processes. J. Theoret. Probab. , 12, 347–373. (Book title in italics, Abbreviated title of the journal in italics and volume number in bold face). The papers submitted must be written with LaTeX. The journal style file "PSF Style" is given after the list of Team of Editors in the next column.

Manuscript Submission. A soft copy of the manuscript in PDF format should be submitted via e-mail either to the Chief Editor or any one of the Editors/ Managing Editor. However, a copy should be simultaneously submitted to the Managing Editor.

Publication. Accepted papers will be posted in this site itself within one month and is freely accessible (Open Access) to the interested.

Manuscripts must be prepared in LaTeX using the journal style file PSF Style.
