Thank you very much Achim and Duncan.

However, I was not clear enough. My question is if there is any way in which I should modify the CITATION file of my package in order to show the two or more bib entries automatically. For example, when you type:

citation("boot")

my expected output is something like:



To cite the 'boot' package in publications use:

  Angelo Canty and Brian Ripley (2012). boot: Bootstrap R (S-Plus)   Functions. R package version 1.3-7.

  Davison, A. C. & Hinkley, D. V. (1997) Bootstrap Methods and Their   Applications. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge. ISBN   0-521-57391-2

  BibTeX entries for for LaTeX users are:

....
....


Is there any way in which I can achieve this ?
