This paper develops an asymptotic theory for R-estimation based on a square-integrable, not necessarily bounded, score function in the pth order stationary autoregressive model. Asymptotic uniform linearity of a class of linear rank statistics is established and the asymptotic normality of the corresponding R-estimators is derived. This paper thus solves a long-standing problem in the development of the asymptotics for rank estimators under the autoregressive setup. The proofs use a combination of the approximation technique, the contiguity technique and the weak convergence technique of Hájek, Jureková and Koul, respectively.
