Dear package author,
We are now accepting submissions for the third issue of the R
Newsletter. For more information see
If you are the author of a package on CRAN and you would like to promote
it a little bit, or if you simply have an interesting application using
R, we hope you can find some time to write a short article on it. We
suggest that it be approximately 2 pages or less. The idea of the
newsletter is that it be interesting to R users without being too
technical. For example an article describing a package could begin by
briefly outlining the statistical background and go on to demonstrate
the usage on some typical data set. Of course graphics are more than
Bill Venables is also encouraging submissions to the more specialist
Programmer's Niche column. In this case the technical level could be a
little higher, of course, but not necessarily: ingeniousness is the key.
Instructions for authors can be found in ``Writing Articles for R News''
in the first issue of Rnews; more detailed instructions will shortly be
available on the web page. Remember that submissions have to be in
LaTeX, and that graphics are preferred in PDF or EPS format. (Bitmaps
like JPG are also OK but please keep in mind that those cannot be scaled
easily and hence might look ugly in the final version.)
The deadline for submissions is
September 14, 2001
Keep the contributions rolling in!
