I always cringe when I click on a study and see it's Elsevier. Working at a Hospital we don't have the access that universities do. Elsevier holds publicly-funded science for ransom.

Sci-Hub loves you and wants you to be happy.

Yeah. Libgen is fine, it has plenty of mirrors. I think sci-hub just scrapes from journal sites, if it doesn't come back it'll get cloned.

The processes of change is on our side!

Shouldn't be too long... I even don't care about paywalls for the journals I've published in, I anyway make the paper available for free and no one at the journal has ever contacted me.

EDIT: but maybe if I was a bigger name in academia etc. they would pay more attention to that act of rebellion...
