I would like to see all scholars enjoy open access to all research information, regardless of their educational background, affiliation, nationality, or financial status.

People working for the betterment of humanity should be supported with resources, and not discriminated against.

I would like to see all children who are curious about science, arts, humanities, and engineering, be able to choose to learn from freely available peer-reviewed journal articles, and not just from social media posts.

I would like to see open access in research will not only be made free for readers, but also free for researchers who are publishing their research, so that the funds that are not used for publishing, can be allocated to research training, education, & research infrastructure.

I would like to see all scholars support open access in research, as knowledge kept within paid walls serves only a selected few, while open access knowledge serves many.
