A bit of history

SIR software has a long history originating in the late 1970s from work done at North Western University in Chicago, Illinois. It was acquired by the current developers in the late 1980s and has evolved through numerous versions since then. One feature that has remained key is the ability to move SIR applications between platforms quickly and easily.

Over that long history, various users have written papers on their use of SIR and the following is a short selection:
