It’s really working guys for papers which doesn’t need to pay for (need only a subscription account and I assume they use an organization account to extract the docs and give it to you when you put the link). So if you try to download Ebooks from Spinger it will not work simply because it needs real money :slight_smile: , just lookup in the website you choose for what you need , take the link, paste it and gotcha, it’s simple.

Thanks for sharing @pirate_BIT :wink:


Sci-hub is tagged as the Robinhood of academia/research. You can get most subscription access journal papers FOC. The best way to go about it is using the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) number. The PubMed ID and URL also works but the latter is the best option.
