I’m very pleased to announce the release of reports : An R package to assist in the workflow of writing academic articles and other reports.

This is the first CRAN release of reports: http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/reports/index.html

The reports package assists in writing reports and presentations by providing a frame work that brings together existing R, LaTeX/.docx and Pandoc tools. The package is designed to be used with RStudio, MiKTex/Tex Live/LibreOffice, knitr, knitcitations, Pandoc and pander (and installr for Windows users). The user will want to download these free programs/packages to maximize the effectiveness of the reports package. Functions with two letter names are general text formatting functions for copying text from articles for inclusion as a citation.
