Example

This is a basic example using simulated data from the qqboxplot package:

library(dplyr)
library(ggplot2)
library(qqboxplot) 

simulated_data %>%
         ggplot(aes(factor(group, levels=c("normal, mean=2", "t distribution, df=32", "t distribution, df=16", "t distribution, df=8", "t distribution, df=4")), y=y)) +
         geom_qqboxplot(notch=TRUE, varwidth = TRUE, reference_dist="norm") +
         xlab("reference: normal distribution") +
         ylab(NULL) +
         guides(color=FALSE) +
         theme(axis.text.x = element_text(angle = 23, size = 15), axis.title.y = element_text(size=15),
               axis.title.x = element_text(size=15),
               panel.border = element_blank(), panel.background = element_rect(fill="white"),
               panel.grid = element_line(colour = "grey70"))
