SAS University Edition and books

Is it within the constraints of the SAS U Edition that a person can write and publish a book on using SAS U or SAS along with screenshots? Or is that considered commercial use of the product?

Re: SAS University Edition and books

Hi Shwilliams4,

The SAS University Edition license agreement prohibits use of the software for any commercial purposes which would include publishing a book. However, SAS does offer many resources to writers who wish to publish books about SAS software.

You can find information about publishing through SAS Press at this link: http://support.sas.com/publishing/publish/index.html

Or, if you are already working with a publisher and require assistance, you can find information about our Author Assistance Program at this link: http://support.sas.com/publishing/publish/assistance.html

You can also contact SAS Press directly by sending an email to saspress@sas.com

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

You might want to think about writing a paper for a regional SUG or for SAS Global Forum.  That is noncommercial and a paper might make a basis for a book proposal.  Again, SAS Press can help you navigate the Legal issues.
