more about Sci-Hub

Sci-Hub article on Verge - Feb 2018

  • "Elsevier, for example, boasts a nearly $35 billion market cap. It has reported a nearly 39 percent profit margin for its scientific publishing arm"
  • Open Access now (not Sci-Hub) now accounts for 28 % Digital Object Identifiers
  • "...many Open Access publishers charge scientists fees — often anywhere from a few hundred dollars up to around two thousand — for processing their articles, whether they’re accepted or not."
  • 70 % of peer-review Open Access models do not charge anything
  • Researchgatews pressured into taking down 7 million unauthorized copies of their (publishers) papers.
  • Sci-Hub has “gained access” to “around 400 universities.”
  • "Now, once users pointed Sci-Hub toward an article, the site would check every university proxy server until it found one through which it could download the paper, and would download it automatically."
  • " “Access from China and Iran was blocked for some time because Sci-Hub couldn’t serve as many requests as were coming from these countries".
  • ".She also made Sci-Hub inaccessible to Americans (except those using VPNs) — in part because of the number of download requests, but also because she wanted to avoid becoming a target for lawsuits.__
