DO NOT add this as the URL for a bookmark: javascript:location.hostname += '.sci-hub.tw' Which when you click on a paywalled research article, automatically takes you to the version of it. And DO NOT try this, see that it works wonderfully, and share it with others.

I know this is sarcasm, but thankfully exists to account for the overwhelming majority of scientists who still genuinely believe this. Virtually all papers could be OA, but researchers stop that from happening. Because reasons.

But is it really only the scientists fault? Journals have researchers write, submit and review papers for free, and then charge significant amounts extra for Open Access. It is certainly a good business model for them. The system is broken in several ways.

You are 100% correct here. But there is almost always a way to make your work OA for free through 'Green OA' or self-archiving. We made this little infographic to help researchers with this :) HT

Share it around, print it out and stick it in your department, and even feel free to translate it into another language if you can! :)

I'm just trying to protect the poor publishers from this piracy that is destryoing their industry. I hear the CEO of Elsevier couldn't even get the Mark IV jet plane he wanted, and had to settle for the Mark III. It doesn't even have Bluetooth...

Ho-Ho. Except it’s not true. There are no corporate jets at Elsevier or its parent company.

Yeah, that was unexpected, but had the desired impact I guess! Hopefully everyone listened carefully and made sure not to do anything..

Theft involves transfer from one party to another. This is basically copying.

Question, is there a benefit to using this method, which is NOT advisable, as opposed to going through the sci hub website, which is also NOT advisable?
