Dongfeng WuDepartment of Bioinformatics and Biostatistics, School of Public Health and Information Sciences, University of Louisville, Louisville, KY, USAOpen Access Medical Statistics is a brand new journal. The aim is to meet the needs of medical research with modern statistical methods.Medicine is a science dealing with health issues in a broad area, where chances or random events play a significant role. Statistics is a science that quantifies random events and helps researchers make valid conclusions and decisions; it involves data collection, data organization, and summarization, making statistical valid inferences and predictions. Modern medicine has been developed over hundreds of years, with new research areas coming up frequently; likewise for statistical science. Medical research needs statistical methods to test hypothesis, design clinical trials, make inferences and predictions, and develop future directions. Statistical research needs medical backgrounds and scenarios to motivate new methodologies and solutions. We hope our journal will be a good merge of these two broad areas, and bring mutual benefits to both.
