Dear package author,

We are now accepting submissions for the 2002/3 issue of the R
Newsletter.  For more information see


If you are the author of a package on CRAN and you would like to promote
it a little bit, or if you simply have an interesting application using
R, we hope you can find some time to write a short article on it.  We
suggest that it be approximately 2 pages or less.  The idea of the
newsletter is that it be interesting to R users without being too
technical.  For example an article describing a package could begin by
briefly outlining the statistical background and go on to demonstrate
the usage on some typical data set.  Of course graphics are more than

Bill Venables is also encouraging submissions to the more specialist
Programmer's Niche column.  In this case the technical level could be a
little higher, of course, but not necessarily: ingeniousness is the key.

Instructions for authors can be found in 'Writing Articles for R News'
in the first issue of Rnews.  Remember that submissions have to be in
LaTeX, and that graphics are preferred in PDF or EPS format.  (Bitmaps
like JPG are also OK but please keep in mind that those cannot be scaled
easily and hence might look ugly in the final version.)

The deadline for submissions is

	 Oct 15, 2002

Keep the contributions rolling in!
