%X Received: 2/17/2015 Approved: 1/23/2016 One of the most interesting problems in distribution theory is constructing the distributions, which are appropriate for fitting skewed and heavy-tailed data sets. In this paper, we introduce a skew-slash distribution by using the scale mixture of the generalized gamma distribution. Some properties of this distribution are obtained. An EM-type algorithm is presented to estimate the parameters. Finally, we provide a simulation study and an application to real data to illustrate the modeling strength of the proposed distribution.
