Journal of Classification

The aim of the Journal of Classification is to publish original and valuable papers in the field of classification, numerical taxonomy, multidimensional scaling and other ordination techniques, clustering, tree structures and other network models (with somewhat less emphasis on principal components analysis, factor analysis, and discriminant analysis), as well as associated models and algorithms for fitting them.

Journal of Classification is published twice a year for the Classification Society of North America (with the support of the International Federation of Classification Societies) by Springer-Verlag New York, Inc. Willem Heiser was appointed Editor on 1 March 2002. Phipps Arabie was the founding editor of the journal and served in that capacity for eighteen years.
