    Wow, I didn't know Peer Review was Russian.

    Was he related to the Frenchman Bourbaki?

    A die? Something completely random? That's an interesting comment on peer review...

    Because it is the language of science? Russian researchers publish in English and get peer-reviewed in English.

    <Puts on Russian accent> Has to be in English. In English, peers review you. But in Soviet Russia, you review... oh... wait... never mind.
