Re: Planet of the New Papers

Besides, according to the Science Citation Index's 1997 study, about
95% of all scientific literature being published is in English,
anyway. NINETY-FIVE PERCENT. Isn't that enough?

Actually, the SCI is -- at least in its choice of which journals get an impact factor -- biased toward English. I've read that plenty of Chinese journals are ignored. But, well, maybe it's 90 rather than 95 % then...
