When the report by the New Researchers' Committee (NRC) of the IMS was published in Statistical Science (6 163-174), readers were invited to provide additional comments. We publish here commentaries by four individuals and also two invited discussions about programs at the National Science Foundation and the National Security Agency designed to benefit new researchers (NR's). The original report by the New Researchers' Committee provides suggestions for NR's and covers the role of the IMS as an advocate for them. The new NRC, now chaired by Deborah Nolan, responds to these comments adding some new material. The NRC also recently has published the New Researcher's Survival Guide to help the professional development of NR's.
