“As a scholar, it is a great pleasure to see one’s research circulate freely and be accessible to a wide public that includes students and young researchers. Open access should become the future standard for academic publications.” – Antonio Somaini, Professor in Film, Media, and Visual Culture Theory at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3.
