Publishing a SAS Technical Paper

Can anyone please help me to understand the process of
publishing a SAS Technical Paper? I have developed a Custom SAS DI
Transformation  which is 80% faster than
the default SAS DI transformation.

Congratulations on your innovation!  This is what the SAS community is all about.

You have a couple of options for sharing.  For immediate release, you can create an article on http://sasCommunity.org, which is a wiki platform that thousands of SAS users visit and contribute to.

If you would like the chance to create a formal paper and present it to your peers, you can submit a paper proposal for SAS Global Forum or one of the SAS Regional or special interest groups.  This article (and video) describes the process for SAS Global Forum -- but unfortunately the call for papers has already passed the deadline for 2014.  Alternatively, you can find a user group if one exists in your geography or industry and propose the topic there.

These options are not mutually exclusive. I encourage you to share your content at any time on sasCommunity.org.  You can later formalize the topic for use at a conference.  Also, if you want to solicit feedback on your approach, you can visit the discussion forum and post your ideas there.

Good luck,

Thank you Chris for your prompt reply.

It's a great pleasure to inform you that the path you are showing me, is what I was looking for. As per your advice, I will publish a topic on the thought and will ask for feedback shortly.

Thanks & Regards

There is one more option.  You can write an article here in Communities on SAS. Instructions for writing an article are available here .  Good luck.

Hi @ChrisNZ,


When Renee wrote the comment I think SAS Communities was using the Jive platform and the link may have disappeared. There is a new process to publish an article, now it's on Lithium as described at https://communities.sas.com/t5/Community-Memo/How-to-nominate-a-topic-discussion-as-an-article-for-t...


Kind Regards,
