In collaboration with LSU Mathematics Professor emeritus Hui-Hsiung Kuo, LSU Libraries has launched the journal Communications on Stochastic Analysis (COSA) on its journal hosting platform on LSU Digital Commons. COSA joins Journal of Latin American Geography on the platform, with additional scholarly journals scheduled to launch in the coming year.
Published quarterly, COSA was founded in 2010 and aims to present original research papers of high quality in stochastic analysis (both theory and applications) and emphasizes the global development of the scientific community. Kuo is the current editor-in-chief, and the journal has editorial board members from around the world.
LSU Libraries offers a platform for university faculty members to host scholarly journals. In addition to hosting journals, the platform provides a workflow for editing, peer review, and publishing, and searching capabilities and a wider visibility for the journals.
