[R] How to cite R


You must know how to spell R, but do you know to cite it?

First lesson today is to know hiw to cite R. We often forget to add the list soft apps or packages we use in our paper/research. In hydrogeology we often use ArcGIS, ModFlow, and the most basic of all, Microsoft Excel. One (including me) shouldn't forget to add them in all of our works. 

Anyway this is how to list the reference data of R. Read the last paragraf. That's why we put this on the first place.


> citation()

Then enter,

And the following lines will come up.

To cite R in publications use:

 R Development Core Team (2012). R: A language and environment for
 statistical computing. R Foundation for Statistical Computing,
 Vienna, Austria. ISBN 3-900051-07-0, URL http://www.R-project.org/.

A BibTeX entry for LaTeX users is

   title = {R: A Language and Environment for Statistical Computing},
   author = {{R Development Core Team}},
   organization = {R Foundation for Statistical Computing},
   address = {Vienna, Austria},
   year = {2012},
   note = {{ISBN} 3-900051-07-0},

We have invested a lot of time and effort in creating R, please cite
it when using it for data analysis. See also 'citation("pkgname")' for
citing R packages.
