FOAS-affiliated projects

FOAS is affiliated with a number of systems and tools (in addition to the Journal of Statistical Software) for developing, hosting, publishing, and reviewing open access publications, open source software, and reproducible research.

FOAS-affiliated projects currently include:
The R Users Conference, useR! 2014. We are working with the R Foundation Conference Committee and the UCLA Statistics Department to organize useR! at UCLA in summer 2014.
OpenIntro. OpenIntro is an organization that provides open and innovative statistics educational materials, including a free university-level introductory statistics textbook.
Journal of Environmental Statistics. The Journal of Environmental Statistics publishes articles on statistical techniques aimed at addressing questions related to environmental data.
Spatial Demography. Spatial Demography is a journal for demographers and others who use spatial data, methods, and theory, and is open access for both readers and authors.
Project MOSAIC. Project MOSAIC is a community of educators working to develop new ways to introduce mathematics, statistics, computation and modeling to students in colleges and universities.
RKWard. RKWard is an integrated developed environment for R that, among other things, facilitates the development of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for R scripts. It may also itself be used as an R GUI.
knitr. The R package knitr enables dynamic report generation with R. knitr allows R code to be included in LaTeX, LyX, HTML, Markdown and reStructuredText documents, with the results of running the code faithfully reported.
RStudio. RStudio is a cross-platform integrated development environment for R that includes tools for editing and executing R code, plotting, history, workspace management, package development, document production, and version control.
Shiny. Shiny facilitates turning R analyses into interactive web applications. Users may choose input parameters using friendly controls, and outputs like plots, tables, and summaries are easily displayed.
R-bloggers. The R-bloggers website aggregates news and tutorials from bloggers who write about R. The site currently features contributions from over 450 R bloggers.
OpenCPU. OpenCPU is a framework for embedded scientific computing and reproducible research. It provides tools, such as a web-based API, for integrating R packages and other statistical software into systems and applications.
statsTeachR. statsTeachR is an open-access, online repository of modular lesson plans, a.k.a. "modules", for teaching statistics using R at the undergraduate and graduate level.
