The R Programming wikibook is an open source community project that "aims to create a cross-disciplinary practical guide to the R programming language." It was launched in June 2011 and is seeking content and contributors. The full call for the R Programming wikibook can be found on Tal Galili's blog. The R Programming wikibook itself is available at

I am writing to raise awareness for the R Programming wikibook and to formally offer content from the R Tutorial Series by John M.

This means that articles from the R Tutorial Series may be included in and modified for the R Programming wikibook, so long as proper attribution is given and the resulting content is made available under an equivalent license.

I hope that the R Programming wikibook will thrive and grow to support a large community of R users, including readers of the R Tutorial Series.
