scihub v rusku konci
From today, the Sci-Hub service ceases to operate on the territory of the Russian Federation. The reasons for this were extremely inadequate, offensive behavior of Russian scientists towards the creator of the service.
For example, for already two years, Alexandra's harassment in the Russian-language Internet continues on the part of people who are referred to the so-called Russian "liberal opposition." For example, they are informed that Alexandra is insane and her personality is denigrated in every way. Unlike the creator of the Sci-Hub service, these people enjoy universal support, some even hold high posts in the Russian Academy of Sciences and receive not only prestigious scientific prizes such as "for fidelity to science" and "Enlightener", but also affirmative pats on the shoulder for insults to Alexandra. Already creates the impression that this is some kind of heroism (soon the Order of the Hero of Russia they apparently give to start for it)
Recently, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences decided to name a parasitic insect in honor of Alexandra. What I consider to be extreme injustice: if you analyze the situation with scientific publications, the real parasites are scientific publishers, and Sci-Hub, on the contrary, fights for equal access to scientific information and makes a useful case.
In connection with such popular love, work in the territory of a given country will be reasonably terminated. However, Russian scientists who love Sci-Hub will still be able to access the site from another country using VPN services or a proxy, or a TOR browser. True, these opportunities in Russia are also being made illegal. In this case, scientists can use, for example, Liebgen, who keeps an archive of articles downloaded over several years through Sci-Hub, and his mirrors.
I can also recommend the site Kiberleninka, which in April this year received a prestigious award from the Government of the Russian Federation as the best solution for access to scientific information. The diploma was handed to the portal by the minister personally.
Another solution is the Russian State Library, which received an annual "Free Knowledge" award from Wikipedia last year, winning from Sci-Hub, which was also nominated
Brew in your shit yourself, but I'm sick of it too, Russian science with a cart-mare is easier. I will direct the released resources to my research.
As it is customary to say in Russia: all you good, good mood, health and the main Orthodoxy is more.
The project is likely to continue working somehow, but without you.
