Bypass paywalls for scientific documents

Bypass paywalls for scientific documents by downloading them from sci-hub instead of paying something like 50 bucks for each paper. This script adds download buttons on Google Scholar, Scopus and Web Of Science, which lead to sci-hub.tw. In this way you can get free access to scientific papers even if you (or your university) can't afford their prices.

Thanks! Very useful

Very useful script. Is possible add a option to save the file directly?

Hi Alan, thank you for the review. As the file link can't be retrieved before loading a sci-hub page, this script can't generate that link. Cross site scripting (a security feature of most of the browsers) avoids scripts to interact between different websites at the same time. And also the captcha that sometimes is required would lock the direct download. To solve the problem I added a piece of code to automatically download the file once the sci-hub page is loaded. Just right click on a "Full Text From Sci-Hub" button on Scholar, Scopus or WOS, and choose "open in new tab"; if the captcha is not required, the download will start automatically, otherwise you'll have to insert the captcha and the download will start. This isn't as fast as a download button on the website, but is faster than it was before. Just update the script to version 3.1 and check if it works on your browser (it should :D ) .

You're welcome :) In 3.1.1 version you don't even need to right click, a single click is enough to open a popup window that downloads the pdf. It may trigger popup blockers, so you might need to allow popups for Scholar, WoS, Scoups and SciHub.
