What is FOAS- http://www.foastat.org/
The mission of the Foundation for Open Access Statistics (FOAS) is to promote free software, open access publishing, and reproducible research in statistics.
FOAS works to ensure the continued success of the Journal of Statistical Software (JSS), one of the few major open access journals that is free for both readers and authors. We also promote the use and development of free software for statistics, such as the R language and environment for computational statistics. We encourage members and the academic community at large to publish reproducible research that is publicly available online, e.g., in an open access journal or on an open access pre-print server.
You can join FOAS to show your support for free statistical software, open access publishing, and reproducible research in statistics. Membership is free and open to all. Members receive periodic email updates from FOAS, and may wish to join the FOAS-members list, join the Facebook FOAS Group, or follow FOAS on Diaspora.
Consider making a donation to FOAS. All donations are currently being used to support the operation of JSS.
