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?

Thanks.

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.

Thanks

Jennifer

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.
