The Stata Technical Bulletin and the Stata Journal: editors' report
AbstractThe Stata Technical Bulletin (STB ) started publication in March 1991 and ceased in May 2001, after 61 bimonthly issues. It has been succeeded by the Stata Journal (SJ), of which two quarterly issues have so far appeared, 1(1) for the last quarter of 2001 and 2(1) for the first of 2002. Although published by Stata Corporation, the SJ is controlled by an international board including the Editor and Executive Editor and 18 Associate Editors. We believe that the STB was a great success, but by 2001 there was a need for fairly radical change in its content and format. Its role in making available new Stata programs and documentation, whether written by users or by Stata Corp, has largely been superseded by easy and rapid use of the Internet. The SJ continues to be a vehicle for distributing valuable new programs, but it will carry more, and more substantial, expository articles on statistics, data management and graphics using Stata. The SJ is also now a reviewed journal, which we believe is important both for its contributors and for its readers. Finally, the SJ has been redesigned and is now printed on better paper and in more durable covers. We will talk briefly about the transition from the STB to the SJ. Comments and questions about the SJ will be most welcome.
