Journal of Multivariate Analysis - ISSN 0047-259X
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.428 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.283 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 1.136 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 1.287 (2019) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

Founded in 1971, the Journal of Multivariate Analysis (JMVA) is the central venue for the publication of new, relevant methodology and particularly innovative applications pertaining to the analysis and interpretation of multidimensional data.

Please do not submit papers that are longer than 25 pages

The journal welcomes contributions to all aspects of multivariate data analysis and modeling, including cluster analysis, discriminant analysis, factor analysis, and multidimensional continuous or discrete distribution theory. Topics of current interest include, but are not limited to, inferential aspects of

  • Copula modeling
  • Functional data analysis
  • Graphical modeling
  • High-dimensional data analysis
  • Image analysis
  • Multivariate extreme-value theory
  • Sparse modeling
  • Spatial statistics

Papers making substantial contributions to regression or time series analysis for multidimensional response variables are also invited. Submissions dealing with univariate models, including regression models with a single response variable and univariate time series models, are deemed to fall outside the journal's remit.

JMVA is particularly interested in papers motivated by, and fit for, contemporary multivariate data analytic challenges. Methods should be validated through standard mathematical arguments that may be complemented with asymptotic arguments or computer-based experiments. Illustrations with relevant, original data are strongly encouraged when presented with clear contextual justification and explanation.

Papers whose content is probabilistic in nature or whose main contribution is to substantive areas (e.g., actuarial science, biostatistics, economics, finance or hydrology) typically fall outside the journal's scope and will only be considered for publication if the statistical methodology used is both novel and broadly applicable. Finally, note that contributors to multivariate survival analysis, reliability theory and statistical quality control should submit their papers to journals specializing in these areas to ensure that their work reaches the targeted audience.

This journal has an Open Archive. All published items, including research articles, have unrestricted access and will remain permanently free to read and download 48 months after publication. All papers in the Archive are subject to Elsevier's user license.
