# Information for Authors

The editorial board of the Chilean Journal of Statistics (CHJS) is seeking papers, which will be refereed. We encourage the authors to submit a PDF electronic version of the manuscript following the CHJS format to Ronny Vallejos, Editor in Chief of the CHJS (E-mail: ronny.vallejos@usm.cl).

## Manuscript Preparation

Manuscripts to be submitted to the CHJS must be written in English and contain the name and affiliation of each author and a leading abstract followed by keywords and mathematics subject classification (primary and secondary). AMS classification is available here. Sections must be numbered 1, 2, etc., where Section 1 is the introduction part. References should be collected at the end of the paper in alphabetical order as in the following examples:
