Our philosophy

The philosophy behind this site

There are several online sites for serious programmers and coders. There are also sites for basic statistics.

In applied science we need slightly more sophisticated designs and we want to understand and use it quickly with modern up-to-date software. Licences are costly and run out annually in our propriety software, and now we have worldwide access to R and R studio.

We combine the following two aspects:

  1. Explaining statistical principles and
  2. showing the use of free statistical software.

We hope applied scientists find the site helpful.

In fact we want to hear from our users.    Contact us

We encourage you to become a member

We plan to send out a fortnightly newsletter by email.

Conceptually what are we aiming at is to:

  • Support scientists by providing the nexus of R software combining and integrated with design and analysis
  • Trained researchers often need support in the field
  • Simplicity and accessibility
  • Crossing the digital divide, making it available for remote sites with intermittent internet
  • Scientists want to achieve results quickly, by accessing specialised support
  • Feedback is available
  • No fees, using an open source model
  • Available 24 /7
