The usual method is either

lis <- vector("list")

or, nearly equivalently,

lis <- list()

If you know in advance how many components the list will have, there can be a slight advantage in using 

lis25 <- vector("list", 25)

if e.g. you know the list will be of length 25.

May I ask how to initialize a list?

usually I will use " result=list(0) "  to do this. is this right?
