Are there any restrictions on the domain of discourse where said publication could take place? For example, last year's Computer Management Group (CMG) proceedings had a paper by someone who is using R in much the same manner as I am -- to analyze computer performance data. It's not biology, but it *is* peer-reviewed. Try "Using R for System Performance Analysis" by James Holtman in the 2004 Proceedings of the CMG.
