Citing GraphPad Prism When citing analyses performed by the program, include the name of the analysis, and Prism version number (including the second number after the decimal point). Use this example as a guide: “One-way ANOVA with Dunnett’s post test was performed using GraphPad Prism version 4.00 for Windows, GraphPad Software, San Diego California USA, www.graphpad.com ”. To find the full version number, pull down the Help menu (Windows), the Apple menu (Mac OS 8-9), or the Prism menu (Mac OS X). Then choose About Prism. It is more important to explain which analysis choices you made than which program you used. It doesn’t really help to say you fit a curve with Prism if you don’t say which equation you selected, how you chose to weight data points, whether you fixed any parameters to constant values, etc. Windows system requirements Prism 4 for Windows runs under Windows 98, 2000, ME, NT4, or XP. Prism 4 does not run under Windows 3.1, 95, or Windows NT3. Your screen must have a resolution of 800 x 600 or better. We recommend using a computer with at least 64 MB of RAM. Prism Windows requires Internet Explorer version 3 or later. You don’t have to use it as your default browser, but Prism uses Internet Explorer to display help topics and also to send files via ftp (when you ask it to). Macintosh system requirements Prism 4 for Macintosh runs under Mac OS 8.6 or higher, or OS X (version 10.1 or higher). Prism will not run under the original OS X version 10.0. Your screen must have a resolution of at least 1024 x 768 on Mac OS X and at least 800 x 600 under Mac OS 8-9, however, Prism is best viewed on 1024 x 768 resolution. We recommend using a computer with at least 64 (Mac OS 8-9), or 128 (Mac OS X) MB of RAM. 1994-2003, GraphPad Software, Inc. All rights reserved.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
