Science, open access… and Sci-Hub – Enrique Dans – Medium

lterrat's bookmarks 2017-09-06

Summary:

"The Sci-Hub academic papers repository continues to pile up lawsuits, multi-million dollar fines and blocking petitions from countries around the world, which its founder, Alexandra Elbakyan, continues to ignore.

Despite recent claims by Elsevier, which is demanding $15 million, as well as the American Chemical Society (ACS), which wants $4.8 million, the founder of the page has still not appeared in court, refusing to answer demands to do so, and the page remains open, although some ISPs may not be able to access it if you do not use a VPN."
