This is unfortunately true, but R is *not* an article or a book, it is a
piece of software. I don't think I'm the only person who thinks it is
counterproductive in the long run to encourage users to cite an article
that they probably haven't read instead of citing the software they
Jan's suggestion of the Journal of Statistical Software might provide a
solution, since JSS *does* publish software.
