the best thing is probably the paper:

  author =       {Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman},
  title =        {R: A Language for Data Analysis and Graphics},
  journal =      {Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics},
  year =         {1996},
  volume =       {5},
  number =       {3},
  pages =        {299--314}
