Boycot Huawei - don't buy phones or other IT products from them!
The German Society for Threatened Peoples (Gesellschaft für bedrohte Völker) has pointed out in a press release that the Chinese multinational corporation Huawei is implicated in the genocide of the Muslim nationalities of the Uyghurs and Kazakhs in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang / East Turkestan.
According to a Washington Post report, in 2018 Huawei participated in the development and testing of an artificial intelligence-based camera system that triggers a "Uyghur alert" when a member of that nationality is detected.

In particular, any science author should, at a minimum, claim from a publisher that she reserves the right to post the final manuscript version immediately (for example, as a PDF file) and the published version six months after publication. This can be conveniently done by attaching the OpenAccess-Delay 1.0 Addendum from Science Commons to the copyright transfer form agreement from the publishing company. Alternative amendments to the copyright transfer form agreement are:
- The OpenAccess-Publish 1.0 Addendum reserves the right for the author to post the published version immediately upon publication.
- The OpenAccess-CreativeCommons 1.0 Addendum reserves the right for the author to post the published version immediately and to grant others a Creative Commons "Attribution NonCommercial" license to use the article.
