Is it possible to conduct part (also called semi-partial correlation) with R. The help.search produces no results and there is also nothing into the archive, well one post asking what is part correlation. Just quickly from Field [Discovering statistics using spss]:

"When we do a partial correlation between two variables, we control for the effect of a third variable. Specifically, the effect that the third variable has on BOTH variables in the correlation is controlled. In a semi-partial correlation we control for the effect that the third variable has on only one of the variables in the correlation."

Apologies if it is a trivial question. Thanks.
