Could there be a FAQ on this question, which comes up periodically? I realize that's tricky, because the FAQ lives on, and StataCorp may or may not want to make an official statement about the (non-) availability of PDF manuals . . .

My sense of the flavor of comments when this comes up are

(1) StataCorp says nothing

(2) Users speculate that StataCorp is unlikely to do this, as manuals are an important revenue stream for StataCorp, and once they exist as PDFs they will inevitably be floating around on the internet.

(3) Users also note that the online help is vast.

Hi everyone,

I do not want to hijack this thread, but I would like to know if Stata Corp
is also considering making the manuals available in pdf format?

There have recently been postings by Richard Williams
<>, Ronan Conroy <>, Kit Baum
<>, and others about electronic availability of articles from the
Stata Journal. A prominent feature of the discussion has been the idea of a
moving wall before which articles would be freely available.

We at StataCorp agree.

We are in the process of implementing a system at

1. Any article published in the SJ is electronically available.

2. Articles older than 3 years are available for free.
Delivery is in PDF format via email and is immediate.

3. Articles newer than that cost $7.50. Delivery is in PDF format via email and is immediate.

We anticipate having the system up and running in late March.
I will notify the list once it is available.
