The software Jamovi

What is the Jamovi software? Why use this software for your statistical processing?

The Jamovi project is a free and open source software for statistical analysis. At the heart of jamovi's philosophy is the idea that scientific software should be "community driven", where anyone can develop and publish analyses, and make them available to a wide audience.  The software operates in the R ecosystem, which is a programming language and statistical software. Jamovi is a derivative of another statistical software: JASP. The developers wanted to make the software simpler than current statistical software. The users of this software are undergraduate/master students who are experimenting with statistical analysis, as well as researchers who use ad hoc statistical software. However, experienced researchers and statistical professionals will be able to improve their results by integrating Jamovi with R.


Why use Jamovi?

  • Jamovi is an open-source software. No need for a subscription, you can simply install it on your computer and only the plugins that interest you.
  • The interface is user-friendly.
  • Data management is live: You can modify your data directly in the software, and if you change something, the results that depend on these changes are immediately updated.
  • The Jamovi community is growing.
  • The possibility to develop its own modules in R language.
  • Tutorials available on the Lille Pod channel of La Fabrique des formations.
  • It's easier to make statistics with a computer than by hand ;)
