Thanks for taking the time to put together a useful list. Encouraging each other to improve our writing by finding sites that reward the hard work so that can afford to do so is the best way forward. Every little move in every field towards experts sharing their findings so that others may up their game improves humanity. You’re a hero.

I was very distressed this morning while listening to a discussion about the emergence of 3 vaccines for Covid, to hear how scientists this time last year had no faith that a vaccine would be found for years because of their experience with Ebola. The Ebola vaccine could have been found much earlier but the leading scientists were hiding their findings from each other in a kind of competition for funds and fame. Our time in earth is so short, is money and fame at the cost of humanity really the reward we seek?
