The Journal of Statistical Software was founded by Jan de Leeuw in 1996. Currently, there are 26 volumes with 260 aricles and the journal publishes about 4 new volumes per year. The web address is www.jstatsoft.org. All articles are pdf files, since 2005 all produced from JSS LaTeX templates.

JSS is edited by Jan de Leeuw, since
2005 jointly with Achim Zeileis of the Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien. Formally, since 2004, the publisher is the American Statistical Association,
but all editorial and IT work is done at UCLA Statistics. JSS is a Ruby on Rails interface to a PostgreSQL database, maintained by Jose Hales Garcia of UCLA Statistics. The journal is hosted on the UCLA Statistics servers.

JSS is now the computational statistics journal with the highest Thomson ISI impact factor (13th place out of 91 statistics journals) and the highest immediacy index (2nd place out of 91 statistics journals).
