We are pleased to announce the launch of a new series of books on R. 

Chapman & Hall/CRC: The R Series

Aims and Scope
This book series reflects the recent rapid growth in the development and 
application of R, the programming language and software environment for 
statistical computing and graphics. R is now widely used in academic research, 
education, and industry. It is constantly growing, with new versions of the 
core software released regularly and more than 2,600 packages available. It is 
difficult for the documentation to keep pace with the expansion of the 
software, and this vital book series provides a forum for the publication of 
books covering many aspects of the development and application of R.

The scope of the series is wide, covering three main threads:
• Applications of R to specific disciplines such as biology, epidemiology, 
genetics, engineering, finance, and the social sciences.
• Using R for the study of topics of statistical methodology, such as linear 
and mixed modeling, time series, Bayesian methods, and missing data.
• The development of R, including programming, building packages, and graphics.

The books will appeal to programmers and developers of R software, as well as 
applied statisticians and data analysts in many fields. The books will feature 
detailed worked examples and R code fully integrated into the text, ensuring 
their usefulness to researchers, practitioners and students.

I almost missed out on the R Journal for this month- great reading,

and I liked Dr Hadley’s article on stringr package the best. Really really useful package and nice writing too

http://journal.r-project.org/archive/2010-2/RJournal_2010-2_Wickham.pdf

(incidentally I just downloaded a local copy of his ggplot website at http://had.co.nz/ggplot2/ggplot-static.zip

I aim to really read that one up

Okay, announcement time

I just signed a contract with Springer for a book on R, some what in first half of 2011

” R for Business Analytics

its going to be a more business analytics than a stats perspective ( I am a MBA /Mech Engineer)

and use cases would be business analytics cases. Do write to me if you need help doing some analytics in R (business use cases)- or want something featured. Big focus would be on GUI and easier analytics, using the Einsteinian principle to make things as simple as possible but no simpler)
