The December 2011 issue of the R Journal is now available for download. Three times a year, the open-access journal of the R project publishes peer-reviewed articles on research and applications of R and R packages. As of the latest issue, all articles are published under a Creative Commons license, making them accessible for translation, academic and commercial uses with attribution.

As always, this latest issue includes several interesting and useful articles about R, including:

This issue also includes news from the BioConductor project, a report on R's participation in the Google Summer of Code, a review of the useR! 2011 user conference and a preview of useR! 2012. 

Many thanks to Heather Turner, who served as Editor in Chief of the R Journal in 2011 and oversaw its transition from R-news. Martyn Plummer takes the one-year term for 2012. Thanks also to Peter Dalgaard who has served on the editorial board for four years; his seat will now be held by Deepayan Sarkar.
