Hi all,

We've just had a paper accepted for publication in Nature. We used R for 95% of our analyses (one of my co-authors sneaked in some GenStat when I wasn't looking.). The preprint is available from the Nature web site, in the open peer-review trial section. I searched Nature for previous references to "R Development Core Team", and I received no hits. So I tentatively conclude that our paper is the first Nature paper to cite R.

A great many thanks to the R Development Core Team for R, and Prof. Bates for lmer.

Cheers,

Simon.
(I'm off to the pub to celebrate.)

The combination of some data and an aching desire for 
an answer does not ensure that a reasonable answer 
can be extracted from a given body of data.
