- descriptive taxonomic research is essential to safeguard our planet’s biodiversity, and remains one of the core missions of natural history institutions and their staff;
- dissemination of original research, as well as the ability to use and reuse data as freely as possible is the key to innovation and further advancement of science;
- publishing is part of the research process, and natural history institutions should be able to preserve their in-house publishing expertise;
- scholarly publications should be made accessible to all, at no charge
