Yes, it's in the R FAQ  
     (on CRAN, or even in your toplevel directory of the source):

  R_FAQ>      @article{,
  R_FAQ>        author =    {Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman},
  R_FAQ>        title =     {R: A Language for Data Analysis and Graphics},
  R_FAQ>        journal =   {Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics},
  R_FAQ>        year =      1996,
  R_FAQ>        volume =    5,
  R_FAQ>        number =    3,
  R_FAQ>        pages =     {299--314}
  R_FAQ>      }
  R_FAQ> This is also the reference for R to use in publications.
