The R Reference Index manual "The R Environment for Statistical 
Computing and Graphics" seems to be the appropriate document.

I'm using

   author =      {{R Development Core Team}},
   title =       {{The R Environment for Statistical Computing and 
Graphics,} {\upshape Version 1.7.1}},
   YEAR =        "2003",
   ORGANIZATION ={{R--Project}},
   ISBN =        {3-901167-50-1},
   URL =         {http://CRAN.R-project.org/manuals.html}
