Release of DataONE R Client

The DataONE team is happy to announce the release of the first version of the DataONE R Client, our package for accessing open data in DataONE from within the R environment for statistical computing. The DataONE R Client provides the ability to access open ecological, environmental, and earth science data from the DataONE network of repositories, and to save data from within R to DataONE repositories that support write access. Because data are accessed via their published, unique identifiers (rather than a local file path), R scripts can be written to be portable across different users, and thus can be more effectively published themselves.

More details, downloads, and documentation can be found here

The DataONE R Client is released as an open source package under the Apache 2.0 license, and we welcome contributions. Please contact us at developers@dataone.org with feedback, contributions, and questions.
