The Current Index to Statistics is a bibliographic index to publications in statistics, probability, and related fields.

The on-line CIS Extended Database 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, and about 11,000 books in statistics published since 1975.

Access to the Current Index to Statistics (CIS) will become open to the public effective January 1, 2017. Subscription fees will no longer be charged for any user. In addition, we will no longer be providing usage statistics effective immediately. CIS will remain open until December 31, 2019 and at that time will be shut down.

If you have already paid for your 2017 subscription, we will refund this payment. If you have not paid, we ask that you do not send us payment.

After much consideration, the IMS came to this decision for the following reasons: most of the relevant scientific bibliography is now covered by Google Scholar, which is free and well resourced; the world of scientific bibliography is increasingly technical computationally; modern tools make processing of bibliographic data from publishers more efficient but also require investment in tools and expertise that are less feasible for a small project like CIS than for larger scale ones like broader bibliographic databases; and similar issues arise for search interface and functionality.

The IMS will continue to auto-update bibliographical data from larger publishers, but any data that was previously manually entered will not be updated.
