"While the controversy rages about whether Sci-Hub is setting science free or stealing from publishers, as a research metrics company we got curious about the downloads themselves. We wanted to know:

  • What were people downloading?
  • What else is going on with those papers outside of Sci-Hub?
  • What can we learn about open access, embargoes and paywalls?"
