About Current Index to Statistics


'The Current Index to Statistics is a bibliographic index to publications in statistics, probability, and related fields. The on-line CIS Extended Database (CIS-ED) indexes

  • the entire contents of over 160 "core journals", in most cases from 1975 (or first issue if later) to the current end year, and pre-1975 coverage for some,
  • selected articles with statistical content since 1975 from about 1200 additional journals (cumulatively) in related fields, and
  • about 11,000 books in statistics published since 1975.' (from database homepage)

NOTE: This database does NOT have links to the Get it! service for full-text; you'll have to open another window, to the Full Text Electronic Journals Holdings page, and search for the journal title there to see if online full-text is available. OR, search it from within Find it!, which does link you to Get it!

Sources See above.
Dates Covered 1975 to the present, with selective coverage pre-1975.
Help Documents Help option available within database. On search results page, change Extended to Linked on upper-left, to make authors, journals, and keywords links to searches on those terms.
