jamovi - statistical software for the masses

The last decades have seen tremendous democratization of the practice of statistics, as consumers of statistical software have pivoted away from costly and proprietary statistical software (such as SPSS and SAS) towards free, open, and community driven software eco-systems such as R and Python. This transition now allows anyone to publish new analyses, and to easily build on the work of others. In spite of these advances, there remains a large userbase of researchers uncomfortable with using scripting languages, and preferring the guidance of a user interface. jamovi aims to serve as a bridge between those publishing new methods, and researchers applying those methods. jamovi is a free and open, user-friendly modern statistical spreadsheet including a range of basic analyses suitable for undergraduate and graduate statistics programs. Crucially, jamovi provides the jamovi library, a library of additional more advanced analyses written in R, which is developed and maintained by people around the world.

This talk introduces jamovi, demonstrates it's user experience, and provides an overview of how R packages can be adapted for use within jamovi. We encourage you to take a look at jamovi before the talk:
