"The #EU is ready to agree that immediate #OpenAccess to papers reporting publicly funded research should become the norm, w/o authors having to pay fees & that the bloc should support #nonprofit scholarly publishing models.

even just saying you didn't enjoy a tv show could get a weirdo obsessed fan in your mentions

Super chill Interview, let's hope it works out ✌️
