No free view? No review!

Scientific publishers are rampant when they hear scientists proposing a fair relationship between the general public and scientists when it comes to peer-reviewing scientific papers and accessing the fruits of the same work funded by tax-payers' money. Hence consider sharing this campaign!

@clacke @Stoori Asciidoctor is a frontend to asciidoc which is a frontend to docbook, so I'm at a disadvantage twice removed. I could tell you how to do it with XSL, but I don't know enough about asciidoctor's theming templates to know how to accomplish it without a lot of experimentation.

Extend the titlepage theme, but I don't know where they keep that or what they call it.

My wife and I rescued Rosie from being put down for biting too much. April 1 2019 was the day we got her. After some work she is a gentle dog at 10 years old, losing sight, had a cancerous tumor removed a month ago. Hopefully

I had an idea to record to an online phone number (in order to record hands-free in the car.) Any ideas on how to implement this? Google voice recognizes my number and ask for a pin. Prefer to just call and leave a recording. Also would be preferable.
