I think you'll find that there is an R Journal, too. And FWIW I have managed to get into JSS with a Stata/Mata-based article before now (Newson 2006).

Best wishes

Do citations of the Stata Journal show a similar pattern? Not sure if
other packages have their dedicated journals, although you one can
arguably view Journal of Statistical Software as the mostly R outlet.

I replied to Roland on my blog, but it's a very intriguing question so here's my response for Statalist readers. Is anyone aware of a change, perhaps in the APA Publication Manual, suggesting that people stop citing software around 2005?  Or perhaps a year or two earlier given the publication lag?>

Yeah massive shifts like that are... odd. One big pressure may well be
that SPSS over that time period instituted progressively more
restrictive licensing, which lead many universities to drop it or
restrict its usage short of dropping it. I suspect that there's no
"killer" explanation, though.
