During the last decades there has been a steady and increasing interest in correspondence analysis for the visualization and interpretation of categorical data. We hereby announce a special issue on "Correspondence Analysis and Related Methods" to be published in the journal Computational Statistics & Data Analysis (CSDA). The objective of this special issue is to spotlight the very latest research in correspondence analysis and related techniques, and discuss future developments. Themes of the special issue include all forms of correspondence analysis and related fields, including visualizations of categorical data:

  • Simple correspondence analysis
  • Multiple correspondence analysis
  • Joint correspondence analysis
  • Multiway correspondence analysis
  • Canonical correspondence analysis
  • Nonsymmetrical correspondence analysis
  • Dual scaling
  • Optimal scaling
  • Homogeneity analysis
  • Multidimensional scaling of categorical data
  • Biplots of categorical data
  • Visualization of compositional data
  • Correspondence analysis in the social sciences
  • Correspondence analysis in ecology and the environmental sciences
  • Correspondence analysis in the health sciences
  • Correspondence analysis in marketing research and management
  • Principal component analysis
  • Geometric data analysis

The contribution should be of high quality and contain strong computational statistical or substantive data-analytic elements. All submissions must contain original unpublished work not being considered for publication elsewhere. Submissions will be refereed according to standard procedures for Computational Science and Data Analysis. Information about the journal can be found at

Authors wishing to contribute to the special issue should send their manuscripts electronically (PDF format) before October 15, 2007 to Patrick Groenen ( It is expected that the entire reviewing process is finished before the autumn of 2008.
