Wiley Online Library has always offered access to the RSS journals (Series A, B and C) back as far as 1997, but now, following a huge digital archiving project, we are delighted to be able to offer members online access back to the very beginning of each journal series.
To celebrate we have made a number of seminal articles free to read for a limited period of time. RSS members, however will be able to access back issues of all of the archived journal articles.
Articles from Series A, Statistics in Society dating back to the very inception of the RSS in 1834 (when the journal was known as Journal of the Statistical Society) are now available to read, including:
- The laws of migration, by EG Ravenstein; (Journal of the Statistical Society of London, Volume 48, (1885), Issue 2)
- League tables and their limitations: statistical issues in comparisons of institutional performance, by H Goldstein and DJ Spiegelhalter (Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series A, Volume 159 (1996), Issue 3)
Issues of Series B, Statistical Methodology date back to its beginnings in 1934. Examples include:
- Regression models and life‐tables, by DR Cox (Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B, Volume 34 (1972), Issue 2)
- Controlling the false discovery rate: a practical and powerful approach to multiple testing, by Y Benjamini and Y Hochberg (Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B, Volume 57 (1995), Issue 1)
Meanwhile Series C, Applied Statistics, dates back to 1952 and includes:
- Bayesian methods in practice: experiences in the pharmaceutical industry, by A Racine, AP Grieve, H Flühler and AFM Smith (Applied Statistics, Volume 35 (1986), Issue 2)
- Informative drop‐out in longitudinal data analysis, by P Diggle and MG Kenward (Applied Statistics, Volume 43 (1994), Issue 1)
RSS members may also have noticed an extra journal series in their subscribed publications. Journal Series D, The Statistician, ceased publication in 2003, but the full backlog (dating from 1950) is now available to all fellows free of charge.
Free access has been granted for a limited time to the sample papers above. To view all other papers from your subscribed publications (including Significance magazine and Journal Series D), log in to My RSS and click on ‘View your publications’ in the My RSS menu.
