We have investigated the spin/orbital phase diagram in the perovskite orthovanadate $$R$$VO$$_3$$ ($$R$$ = Eu, Y, Dy, and Ho) by measurements of magnetization, dielectric constant, specific heat, Raman scattering spectra, and X-ray diffraction, focusing on the interplay between the V $$3d$$ spin and the $$4f$$ moment of the $$R$$ ion. The results cannot be uniquely explained in terms of the exchange interaction between the V $$3d$$ spin and the $$R$$-ion $$4f$$ moment. By comparing this phase diagram with the spin/orbital ordering in TbVO$$_3$$, it is evident that the critical competition between the C-type spin/G-type orbital ordered phase and the G-type spin/C-type orbital ordered one depends not only on the GdFeO$$_3$$-type lattice distortion but also on the presence of the $$4f$$ moment of the $$R$$ ion. The magnetic field induced phase transition of the spin/orbital ordering is achieved concomitantly with polarizing $$R$$ $$4f$$ moments for DyVO$$_3$$ and HoVO$$_3$$. The results cannot be uniquely explained in terms of the exchange interaction between the V $$3d$$ spin and the $$R$$-ion $$4f$$ moment. The coupling of the $$R$$ $$4f$$ moment polarization with the lattice distortion tied with the orbital ordering of the V $$3d$$ sublattice may also be relevant to this field induced phase transition.
