We just got word that rOpenSci was a runner-up in the first Binary Battle!  Thank you for all the support so far!

We entered two of our packages for integrating with PLoS Journals (rplos) and Mendeley (RMendeley) in the Mendeley-PLoS Binary Battle.  Get them at GitHub (rplosRMendeley).

These two packages allow users to search and retrieve data from PLoS journals (including their altmetrics data), and from Mendeley.  You could surely mash up data from both PLoS and Mendeley.  That’s what’s cool about rOpenSci – we provide the tools, and leave it up to users vast creativity to do awesome things.

We won third place!!  This gives us a $1,000 prize, plus a Parrot AR Drone helicopter.

The grand prize went to  openSNP, and the runner-up to PaperCritic.  Check them out.
