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.
Applications:
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.
