No. Genstat Discovery Edition was a free version of Genstat that was available for non-commercial users in developing countries, but it is no longer available.
Genstat has a rich history in the world of statistical software. It is celebrated for its versatility, encompassing a wide range of statistical techniques for data analysis, experimental design, and data visualisation. Genstat Discovery Edition was designed to make Genstat accessible to researchers and students in developing countries.
The Genstat Discovery Edition was supported by a consortium of organisations, including the Statistical Services Centre at the University of Reading, the World Agroforestry Centre, the International Livestock Research Institute, and the Biometry Unit Consultancy Service at the University of Nairobi.
5 years ago, the decision was made to discontinue the Genstat Discovery Edition. This was due to a number of factors, including the increasing cost of development and maintenance, and the changing needs of our users.
We understand that this decision may have disappointed some of our users, but we want to assure you that we are committed to developing and supporting the use of Genstat across the world.
We understand that for many, budgets can be a constraint to access Genstat. The good news is that we've created a tiered price offering depending on your location, research status and requirements.
