Aims & Scope of the Journal

Following revision of the content description of The R Journal, from January 2017 submitted articles may include:

Reviews and proposals:
surveying and discussing challenges and opportunities of potential importance for the broader R community, including proposals and proof-of-concept implementations.
Comparisons and benchmarking:
of implementations in base-R and contributed packages with each other, and where relevant with implementations in other software systems.
demonstrating how new or existing techniques can be applied in an area of current interest using R, providing a fresh view of such analyses in R that is of benefit beyond the specific application.
Add-on packages:
short introductions to contributed R packages that are already available on CRAN or Bioconductor, and going beyond package vignettes in aiming to provide broader context and to attract a wider readership than package users. Authors need to make a strong case for such introductions, based for example on novelty in implementation and use of R, or the introduction of new data structures representing general architectures that invite re-use.
