Thank you for being willing to make your Stata commands available to other
Stata users. There are several ways of doing so.
- Submit your command to the Statistical Software Components (SSC) archive.
The following website contains information on the SSC archive and
for submitting a command:
- Create your own website.
You could create your own site and make it available through Stata. For
more information, type
in the Stata Command window. A new window will open with details on
what information should be available on the user website. Once you have
set up the site, send the URL to
email@example.com, and you will receive a confirmation email once the link
has been added.
- Publish in the Stata Journal.
Submit an article to the Stata Journal
that explains what your command does and describes the
theory behind it (with an example or two). For more
information on the requirements for such an article, type
in the Stata Command window. Read more about the Stata Journal at
The availability of your command can be posted at Statalist, the Stata
listserver. Read more about Statalist at
