To cite R in publications use:

  R Development Core Team (2008). R: A language and environment for   statistical computing. R Foundation for Statistical Computing,   Vienna, Austria. ISBN 3-900051-07-0, URL http://www.R-project.org.

A BibTeX entry for LaTeX users is

  @Manual{,
    title = {R: A Language and Environment for Statistical Computing},     author = {{R Development Core Team}},     organization = {R Foundation for Statistical Computing},     address = {Vienna, Austria},
    year = {2008},
    note = {{ISBN} 3-900051-07-0},
    url = {http://www.R-project.org},
  }

We have invested a lot of time and effort in creating R, please cite it when using it for data analysis. See also 'citation("pkgname")' for citing R packages.
