We collect uses of rOpenSci packages, particularly scholarly works (i.e., journal articles, preprints, etc.), but blog posts and talks, etc. are also good to know about. This is useful for us, but we’ll also incorporate this information into our website soon, so anyone can see what people do in the real world with rOpenSci packages.
For journal articles, we maintain these in a database that’s updated occasionally. You can see what citations we have for each package in our API. e…g, citaitons for
rgbif is https://roapi.org/repos/rgbif/citations - for
rfishbase the call would be https://roapi.org/repos/rfishbase/citations p.s. the API code is at https://github.com/ropensci/roapi
We scour the internet for these, mainly letting Google Scholar do the work. However, we’d love your help! Some packages have names that are not in a dictionary, and so are easy to find on the internet, but others are common words, and so are needles in a large haystack.
Our simple ask is to let us know whenever you see a paper/talk/blog post about an rOpenSci package. Email me, drop a line here about it, tweet at us, whatevs. Thanks!
