[R] ggsave() with width only

Dear useRs,

I produce several independent ggplot2 plots and I would like to save 
them to a fixed width (for publications), but the height (and therefore 
aspect ratio) is different from plot to plot.

How can I save my plots with ggsave() supplying only a fixed width but 
without knowing the height nor the aspect ratio? If I specify the width 
only, the plots are truncated in width because the aspect ratio is not 

Thank you for the tip!
