GenStat Discovery    

GenStat Discovery Edition 3

Lack of funding should not mean poor quality research. The GenStat Discovery Edition is a free version of GenStat developed by VSN International for use by not-for-profit research organisations, charities and educational institutes based in the developing world.

What if you are doing your research within an organisation, institution or indeed country that simply cannot afford quality statistical analysis tools? VSNi recognises this problem and is doing something about it.

“The idea of a free GenStat version for scientists in developing countries had been discussed for a while and GenStat Discovery Edition 1 was released in 2003, thanks greatly to the efforts of Roger Stern at Reading University and colleagues, Parin Kurji at the University of Nairobi, Ric Coe at the World Agroforestry Centre, (ICRAF) in Nairobi and the VVOB (Flemish Association for Development Cooperation and Technical Assistance) funded ‘Capacity Strengthening in Research Methods’ project based at the ICRAF-ILRI Research Methods Group in Nairobi”, Stewart Andrews, VSNi CEO.

Discovery now has over 3000 users in 85 countries, including promoters spread over several continents.
