Statistical Analysis and Data Mining addresses the broad area of data analysis, including data mining algorithms, statistical approaches, and practical applications. Topics include problems involving massive and complex datasets, solutions utilizing innovative data mining algorithms and/or novel statistical approaches, and the objective evaluation of analyses and solutions. Of special interest are articles that describe analytical techniques, and discuss their application to real problems, in such a way that they are accessible and beneficial to domain experts across science, engineering, and commerce. The focus of the journal is on papers which satisfy one or more of the following criteria:

- Solve data analysis problems associated with massive, complex datasets
- Are application and solution oriented with a focus on solving real problems
- Describe innovative data mining algorithms or novel statistical approaches
- Compare and contrast techniques to solve a problem, along with an objective evaluation of the analyses and the solutions

The goals of this interdisciplinary journal are to encourage collaborations across disciplines, communication of novel data mining and statistical techniques to both novices and experts involved in the analysis of data from practical problems, and a principled evaluation of analyses and solutions.

Journal of Computational Physics thoroughly treats the computational aspects of physical problems, presenting techniques for the numerical solution of mathematical equations arising in all areas of physics. The journal seeks to emphasize methods that cross disciplinary boundaries.

PLoS Computational Biology is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal featuring works of exceptional significance that further our understanding of living systems at all scales through the application of computational methods.

*Computers & Mathematics with Applications* provides a medium of exchange for those engaged in fields where there exists a non-trivial interplay between mathematics and computers. Thus, the three present principal areas of interest of the journal are:

1. Computers in mathematical research (e.g. numerical analysis, number theory, probability theory).

2. Mathematical models of computer systems.

3. Interactive applications – essentially the utilization of a (non-trivial) combination of classical mathematics and of computer science in the solution of problems arising in other fields.

The journal pays particular attention to applications in “non-classified” fields, such as environmental science, ecology, biology, urban systems and also to appropriate papers in applied mathematics.

*The Journal of Online Mathematics and its Applications* (JOMA) is a publication of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). JOMA is the journal of the Mathematical Sciences Digital Library (MathDL), for which MAA has received funding by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

All articles and other materials submitted to JOMA are peer-reviewed. JOMA publishes continuously as accepted materials are ready to be posted. Each volume (after Volume 1) represents a calendar year without subdivision into issues.

JOMA takes advantage of the World Wide Web as a publication medium for materials containing dynamic, full-color graphics; internal and external hyperlinks to related resources; applets in Java, Flash, Shockwave, or other languages; MathML, SVG, and other XML markups; audio and video clips; and other Web-based features.
