Researcher illegally shares millions of science papers free online to spread knowledge - ScienceAlert
For anyone wondering, this is how I get all my scientific articles for research. I do not tolerate corporations trying to limit the spread of scientific information that was done by researchers that will never see a penny of those subscription fees.
When you pirate things from these huge companies, the creator already got paid a long time ago, they don’t receive any of the cash made off the paywalls, a lot of music makers would leak their music secretly because they got paid to make it and won’t earn anything off what the greedy corporations do with it.
Scientific knowledge is free, educational info may be researched and found and authored by someone, but they don’t get to choose who can receive that information. In order to progress in technology and science we need to be open and pool our information and research. Not charging huge fees.
I send this site to my professors and they use it, and they tell students about it if there’s a paper on a certain site the college doesn’t have a subscription to.
