## Quantitative Analysis Made Accessible

Contains a number of functions that serve
two goals. First, to make R more accessible to people migrating from
SPSS by adding a number of functions that behave roughly like their
SPSS equivalents. Second, to make a number of slightly more
advanced functions more user friendly to relatively novice users. The
package also conveniently houses a number of additional functions that
are intended to increase the quality of methodology and statistics in
psychology, not by offering technical solutions, but by shifting
perspectives, for example towards reasoning based on sampling
distributions as opposed to on point estimates.

# userfriendlyscience (USF)

Userfriendlyscience contains a number of functions that serve two goals. First, to make R more accessible to people migrating from SPSS by adding a number of functions that behave roughly like their SPSS equivalents. Second, to make a number of slightly more advanced functions more user friendly to relatively novice users. The package also conveniently houses a number of additional functions that are intended to increase the quality of methodology and statistics in psychology, not by offering technical solutions, but by shifting perspectives, for example towards reasoning based on sampling distributions as opposed to on point estimates.

The package imports functions from many other packages, which is in line with its function as a 'wrapper package': USF aims to make many existing functions easier for users coming from SPSS, so sometimes a function is added when it saves the user just some data preparing.

The only publications where the package has been mentioned so far are available at:

http://ehps.net/ehp/index.php/contents/article/download/ehp.v16.i2.p56/1 http://ehps.net/ehp/index.php/contents/article/download/ehp.v16.i2.p70/25 http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/17437199.2015.1124240

All are Open Access. Please cite the manual and/or one of these publications when you use the package.
