Thanks Louis! I think we've got our workflow all set up for this project, but we'll keep that incredibly kind offer in mind!

Absolutely! We're extremely committed to open access publication, of both data resources like sequences and photos, and of any papers that result from the project. In particular, working with Ecuadorians on Ecuadorian material, it's very important that there not be barriers to access of information for members of the scientific community in Ecuador — pay walls are one of the ways that modern colonialism plays out in science! We're committed to fighting that relic of cultural imperialism, and making sure that the science we do benefits EVERYONE, particularly those working in developing countries like Ecuador. All sequence data will be fully annotated and made available via GenBank, and all photos are already available on Mushroom Observer. All microscopic data and final IDs will also be posted to Mushroom Observer, and all collections are vouchered in duplicate at the Ecuadorian National Herbarium in Quito and at Oregon State University's OSC herbarium, save collections with only a single specimen (those few collections are only at Quito). We haven't discussed were we'll publish, but I can assure you that it will be open access.
