The JASA was started in 1922, arising out of the old New Series publications of the American Statistical Association. Initially not concerned with statistical methodology per se, there is now a Theory & Methods section to complement the Applications & Case Studies section, along with review articles and book reviews. In substance, the JASA is dominated by theoretical mathematically-based statistical methodology, although its authors continue to be motivated by real world problems. Articles are for the most part unsolicited, and the Journal appears quarterly.
