# TeXStudio not compiling .Rnw properly with “scholar” R package

I'm working on making my CV with LaTeX, but I'm having an issue with including some R code.

I'm using knitr and have made a user command for TeXStudio as follows:

/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.2/Resources/bin/Rscript -e "knitr::knit2pdf('%.Rnw')"


If I'm just using base R then there's no problem:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
<<>>=
n_cites = 44 + 7
@

I have \Sexpr{n_cites} citations.
\end{document}


But if I use the get_profile() function from the scholar package then I encounter an error.

Here's a MWE:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
<<>>=
library(scholar)
prof = get_profile('IIMda24AAAAJ')
n_cites = prof$total_cites print(n_cities) @ \end{document}  And the error: If I compile this same document in RStudio, everything runs fine. How can this problem be solved? • What is the actual error you get? – Tyler Feb 22 '16 at 17:51 • Question is updated with error message. Also, it's just scholar not cranlogs that leads to an error. – CephBirk Feb 22 '16 at 17:56 • Hmm. If you drop the inline R code (\Sexpr), does the chunk itself work? Try adding print(n_cites) at the end of the chunk, maybe we'll get a clue. – Tyler Feb 22 '16 at 18:03 • Good idea. That changed things. Updated question above. – CephBirk Feb 22 '16 at 18:07 ## 1 Answer it's a very simple fix. I just need to add library(methods) to my code chunk. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} <<>>= library(methods) library(scholar) prof = get_profile('IIMda24AAAAJ') n_cites = prof$total_cites
print(n_cites)
@
\end{document}


Apparently, while the methods package is automatically loaded in RStudio, it needs to be explicitly loaded for TeXstudio.

• Actually, this is an issue with interactive vs batch mode, regardless of editor. From the Advanced R book: All S4 related code is stored in the methods package. This package is always available when you’re running R interactively, but may not be available when running R in batch mode. For this reason, it’s a good idea to include an explicit library(methods) whenever you’re using S4. – Tyler Feb 22 '16 at 19:23
