VSNi has announced a freely downloadable version of its data analysis software GenStat for teaching institutions worldwide. Called GenStat for Teaching, the free software will be offered to all educators and students in courses where data analysis is required including the social sciences, biosciences, economics, market research and mathematics.
This announcement marks a significant step in VSNi's on-going commitment to supporting the next generation of scientists across the world. 'We believe that we have a social and moral responsibility to assist where we can,' says Stewart Andrews, VSNi CEO. 'It's vital that educators and students have free access to the best tools for the job. GenStat is ideal for teaching, not just because it is quick and easy to learn, but because its unique strength lies in the fact that it offers users the security of knowing that the results from GenStat analysis are founded on sound statistical principles.'
