I'll add my agreement with the comments regarding quotations and their use. One can leaf through whole volumes of, say, Annual Review of Biochemistry and find fewer quotes than are seen in even the excerpts on the "EE" web site.
I'm wondering - how much of an editing project would it be to revise "EE" so that quotations are replaced with accurate representations of the opinions and/or results of the scientist(s) being cited? How dramatically would the tone of "EE" change if this were done? Is this a project that the authors of "EE" would undertake?
