This guide is a list of software primarily for scientific applications. Included are a variety of programs that are not discipline-specific (i.e. image analysis and office suites), as well as others for specific subjects (biology, chemistry, etc.). A link to media creation programs on the "Finding Media for Educational Purposes" LibGuide is also included that has links to other open source multimedia programs.
If your favorite open source or student-licensed application isn't listed here, please feel free to add it in the comments!
