|1. Join our Author Support Program|
You can join even if your book is
still in the planning stages.
Stata’s Author Support Program is free and offers the following services:
- Stata professionals will review your Stata code and output to
ensure that it is efficient and reflects modern usage.
- Stata production specialists will help you
format Stata output (including graphs) to appear in your book.
- Stata editors and statisticians will
review and ensure the accuracy of Stata-related content.
When you join, we will assign a contact person to help you,
whatever your needs.
|2. Keep your contact person informed|
Stay in touch, whether you are delayed, you have a problem, or the project
is going smoothly. StataCorp often has resources or internal projects
that can help you in ways you would never expect.
If you have a publisher, let your editor there know that you are using our
program. Before sending us anything that might be confidential, get your
Give your editor the name and email address of your Stata contact
|4. Give us time to review the final draft before going to press|
We can move quickly, but only if we have adequate warning.
Please don’t send us your final manuscript Friday afternoon
with a note that final edits are due Monday morning.
The Author’s Program is not a bureaucracy, not an approval process,
and not a hurdle. You are responsible for your book; the program merely
helps you meet your duties as author.
The best way to use the program is as you go. Send us drafts of chapters
as you produce them and give us time to comment on your
usage of Stata—and to alert you about upcoming changes to Stata that
might affect your book.
The Author Support Program does not provide substantive review. The program
focuses on Stata usage. If you wish, your editor can arrange
substantive review by professionals at StataCorp.
