Volunteer: Anaïs Biclot
Anaïs obtained her BSc from the University of Queensland, Australia in molecular biology and genetics and her MSc at the Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium in Biomolecular sciences. She is now a PhD student at the KULeuven in Belgium working on in vitro human gut microbiota communities. Science communication and outreach is very important to her and she thinks that sharing microbiology research and news in other languages than English is crucial to reach a bigger audience.
All but one of the FEMS journals are now fully open access (OA), with one journal, FEMS Microbiology Letters remaining a subscription journal with free-to-publish and OA options. Open access is key to supporting the FEMS mission of disseminating high quality research as widely as possible: when high quality, peer reviewed sound science is open access, anyone, anywhere in the world with an internet connection, can read it.
