Access to Research Software

Do I have to have a University-owned computer in order to install statistical software? Can statistical software be installed on my personal computer?

It depends on the software. The following table shows what software is available for University-owned and personally-owned computers:

How can I have JMP, NVivo, SAS, or SPSS installed on my University-owned or personally-owned computer?

Statistical and qualitative software is available through Information Services. For more information on the availablility of SPSS, Amos, JMP, SAS, and NVivo, visit the HelpDesk or Support Center, or contact your department's local desktop support person.

How can I obtain Stata for my university-owned or personally-owned computer?

Kent State University currently does not have a site license for Stata. However, Kent State users can purchase Stata/IC, Stata/SE, Stata/MP, or Small Stata at a reduced price through the Stata Campus GradPlan at Stata's website.

Some departments may purchase their own departmental licenses for Stata. Check with your department's IS support person before purchasing.
