    I originally thought this applied to the data, but I think it only applies to the published paper (i.e. the results), which isn't particularly exciting. It had me excited for a while!

    Free papers are still a step in the right direction. Freely available data is still needed.

    I was just reading about this on reddit, apparently it does apply to data too but presumably the purveyors of dodgy research will just cite intellectual property rights, security or privacy issues.

    I think that is great. Being able to access full papers on Sci Hub has been a great boon for my pursuit of ME/CFS treatments, and for reading about the pathophysiology of ME/CFS.

    By the way, the main Sci Hub site at http://sci-hub.io is currently down, but Sci Hub can be accessed at its other sites:

    http://sci-hub.ac
    http://sci-hub.bz
    http://sci-hub.cc

    There is even an onion Sci Hub site at http://scihub22266oqcxt.onion for those who want to access Sci Hub via the darknet using the Tor browser (onion websites will not work with an ordinary browser).
