Journal webinar

How does the Journal webinar work?

Journal webinars are held every few months and last about an hour. Journal papers are carefully selected from recent issues of the Royal Statistical Society's journals by editorial board for their importance, relevance and/or use of cutting-edge methodology; and authors are invited to present their work and take questions from an audience who 'dial in' to access the webinar.

Two papers are selected from our journals and authors will be invited to present their papers (20 minutes) followed by discussion (25 minutes) for each paper. Attendees will dial into a teleconference call. Papers and slides will be available to download two weeks in advance or you can log into the conference system and follow the presentation live online. These sessions are open to members and non-members. No need to pre-register. Audio recordings will be available for download shortly after the session.

Questions on the paper or general queries can be emailed in advance of the session to
