Who’s downloading pirated papers? Everyone.

Two articles about Sci-hub (here and here). No, I am not encouraging illegal downloading. But I hope we can look back in a few years with shame at the way journals, their publishers and those who have a vested interest in the mismeasure of science have hindered educational advance, and wasted public money. Some specialty journals do indeed pour money back into their subject, but it is a minority. All too often medical journals are a way of making money for publishers and specialist societies. There will be an iTunes moment (I hope).
