Claus Wilke talks about scatterplots in Chapter 12 of his book Fundamentals of Data Visualization. Michael Toth also has a long blog post about all of the ins and outs of making scatterplots in ggplot.

You can also find examples of code to make scatterplots on the Data to Viz website , the R Graph Gallery website , and in Chapter 5 of the R Graphics Cookbook.
