R is a powerful open source statistical software package–many people think of it as an open source alternative to SAS. A number of OpenClinica users have been asking about how to bring data from OpenClinica into R. So, we recently published a write-up in the OpenClinica reference guide, providing instructions for importing data into R in three different ways:

  • using a Tab-delimited file,
  • using a CSV file, and
  • using an Excel file.

Feedback and additional ideas are welcome.
