Significance, established in 2004, is a bimonthly magazine published by Wiley-Blackwell on behalf of the Royal Statistical Society and the American Statistical Association.[1] It publishes articles on topics of statistical interest presented at a level suited for a general audience. It is not a research journal and articles are not peer reviewed.[2] The founding editor-in-chief was Helen Joyce.[3] The current editor is Brian Tarran. Significance replaced the Royal Statistical Society's journal, The Statistician.[4]

As well as ordinary articles in the magazine, additional "virtual issues" (collections of articles on a particular subject area) are made available online.[5] Having been launched as a quarterly magazine, Significance changed to a bimonthly frequency in 2011.

Members of both the Royal Statistical Society and the American Statistical Association receive the magazine as part of their membership.[1]
