OSU Libraries has established a subscription to the Current Index to Statistics (CIS).

The Current Index to Statistics is a bibliographic index to publications in statistics, probability, and related fields. It replaces the print Current Index to Statistics, which ceased publication in 1999.

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
  • about 11,000 books in statistics published since 1975.

The Current Index to Statistics is a joint venture of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.

Newsbank, the provider for our subscription of the Oregonian, is experiencing a brownout at its server location. At this time, they do not know when service will be restored. I will update this message when the Oregonian is available again.

UPDATE: Access has been restored to this electronic resource.
