REQUEST FOR BOOK PROPOSALS Springer announces a series of books called


edited by Robert Gentleman, Kurt Hornik, and Giovanni Parmigiani.

This series of inexpensive and focused books on R will publish shorter books aimed at practitioners. Books can discuss the use of R in a particular subject area (e.g., epidemiology, econometrics, psychometrics) or as it relates to statistical topics (e.g., missing data, longitudinal data). In most cases, books are to be written as combinations of LaTeX and R so that all the code for figures and tables can be put on a website. Authors should assume a background as supplied by źDalgaard s Introductory Statistics with R╗ so that each book does not repeat basic material. Springer will supply a LaTeX style file, all books will be reviewed and copyedited, and faster production schedules will be used.

To propose a book, please contact
