What is R and how can I get it?
R is a free and open source programming language originally developed for statistical analysis. Its popularity has led to the growth of a worldwide community of users and multiple applications. R can run on Windows, MacOS, and Linux computers. Scholars in particular appreciate its contribution to reproducible research, but it is also employed by data scientists in the private sector.
