While there is a call for the use of novel statistical inference methods in the social sciences, the scientific community is slow in adapting to using such statistical methods. A possible reason for this is that state-of-the-art statistical methods are mostly implemented in the statistical programming language R whereas empirical social scientists more often rely on propitiatory statistical software such as SPSS. We introduce JASP, an graphical environment for statistical analyses that combines the strength of R, open-source and state-of-the-art statistical methods, with the flexibility and accessibility of proprietary statistical software. JASP provides a rich graphical user interface and implements a wide range of classical as well as Bayesian analyses. JASP is freely available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux under an open source license from https://jasp-stats.org.
