Skew-normal distributions have attracted the attention of many researchers since Azzalini formally introduced this family in 1985. This brief survey is intended to provide the reader with the basic underlying concepts related to the univariate continuous symmetric families and their associated skewed families of which skew-normal is a special class. This in turn will enhance the domain of applicability of the more general skewed distributions than merely skew-normal. Some related characterization results will also be mentioned.
