Last Chance To Enter Young Statisticians Writing Competition 2014 - Deadline May 30th, 2014
The Royal Statistical Society are once again hosting a competition to promote good writing about statistics. This time the rewards are even greater! All budding writers within the first 10 years of their statistical career are invited to submit articles which would be suitable for Significance magazine.
Articles should be between 1800 and 3000 words long and can include tables, figures, images and photographs. Their style should be clear and easy to read – avoid the formal layout of an academic report – and technical terms and mathematics should be used sparingly if at all, and suitably explained. End references are optional, but should be limited to three or four at most.
Anyone is welcome to enter, regardless of membership or affiliation. The only stipulation is that you should be ‘young’ (in career terms, not necessarily in age) – that is, you must be a student or within the first 10 years of your career. The article could be on work that you have done, or it could explain the work of others. Only submissions in English will be considered.
More information may be obtained here but you must be quick.
