      How to Download Full Screen Journal Articles for Free

      In the name of science and free access to scientific articles we need to use, I've got a list of two free tools to help you download the full and free versions of full scientific articles.

      Method 1:
      Unpaywall - Unpaywall is a free browser extension that will check to see if it can find a free article of the version you're currently reading. Simple as that. It will have a little green popup in the right hand corner you can click on if you come across this article.

      Method 2:
      Sci-Hub - Sci-Hub is a full free (and pirated) method to find journal articles you're looking for. Generally, just paste the full link of the journal article that's restricted. It will almost fine all articles 100% of the time if you just know how to paste in the URL properly. It generally works really well if you use a DOI (Digital object identifier) url. Here is an example of a DOI url Redirecting. Sci-Hub has to change URLs frequently because of the crackdown on the from the academic industrial complex. https://twitter.com/Sci_Hub

      Some of the Sci-Hub links aren't working, so you can visit a site that has mirrors of Sci-Hub URLs. It has a small popup on the front page, but if you hit ESC it will go away.

      Sci-Hub: Removing Barriers in the Way of Science

      Method 3:
      #ICanHazPDF - This is kind of the method of last resort and I've never had it work for me, but it's worth a shot. You can post the title of the article along with a URL along with the hashtag #ICanHazPDF and other researchers online will see if they can share it with you. It's worth a try if you can't find it anywhere else.

      One last thing I wanted to recently post about is a really awesome website paywall killer browser extension called bypass-paywalls-chrome. Now, unfortunately, this extension requires a little bit of technical knowledge to install, but it's explain very well in the read me a file.

      Here's an extensive list of all the sites they prevent you from getting the "Sorry, you're not subscribed" error message when trying to access a paywalled website.

      So, how do you get this extension installed. Well, first of all you need an unzip client (one comes with Windows), but you can also use my personal fav, WinRAR or 7Zip.

      Second, you download the ByPass Firewalls Chrome ZIP file (apparently there is a version for Firefox as well). Since this version is for Chrome, it will work on browsers that use the Chrome engine like Microsoft Edge, Opera, and Brave. Then you unzip it into a folder or your choice and here are the further 3 instructions:

      1. In Chrome go to the extensions page (chrome://extensions).
      2. Enable Developer Mode.
      3. Drag the bypass-paywalls-chrome-master folder anywhere on the page to import it (do not delete the folder afterwards).

      And you're done. It works great on sites like the WSJ which are impossible to read without some kind of bypass.

      So anyway, let me know if these have helped you in anyway!

      I've found a very new cool extension if you're looking for copies of old web pages that have vanished off the internet and you can't find them. It's very helpful if you know the direct URL of the site and knew it existed in the past but has just vanished completely. The Wayback Machine works for most things, but for forums and other miscellaneous links it isn't so great.

      This is an extension called Web Archives and you can download the extension here:


      Web Archives is a browser extension which helps you to find archived and cached versions of web pages. Searches can be initiated from the right-click context menu, the browser toolbar, or the address bar in case of a server error.

      I updated Sci-Hub to it's new host. It has to jump around to a lot of different countries because the people who publish the studies are constantly trying to get it shut down.

      I've come across a HUGE library with tons of free ebooks on every subject under the rainbow. There's books on AAS, science, fiction, non-fiction, and so so much more. You're limited to downloading 5 ebooks a day, but if you use Windscribe, you can use their free VPN service and hop servers and download all the books you want. You get 50gb free per month. You can also use Opera browser which has a free VPN built in

      Here's the link:


      Some of the books are in ePub format, so I use Sumatra reader for Windows, but they also have readers for Android/iOS. Here's some more epub readers if you don't like Sumatra.


      Here are some links to epub readers for Mac (haven't verified any of these since I don't have a Mac):

      If anyone else has a favorite epub reader, feel free to post it. I tried Amazon Kindle to read some of the books on the site, but I couldn't get them to load.
