Elsevier Complaint Shuts Down SCI-HUB Domain Name

Hoping to stop the unauthorized distribution of millions of academic papers, academic publisher Elsevier filed a complaint against Sci-Hub and several related sites last year.

.

While Sci-Hub is nothing like the average pirate site, it is just as illegal according to Elseviers legal team, which obtained a preliminary injunction from a New York District Court last fall.

.

The injunction ordered Sci-Hubs operator to quit offering access to any Elsevier content, but this didnt happen. Instead of taking Sci-Hub down, the lawsuit and the associated media attention only helped the site grow.

.

However, as part of the injunction Elsevier is able to request domain name registrars to suspend Sci-Hubs domain names. This happened to the original .org domain earlier, and a few days ago the Chinese registrar Now.cn appears to have done the same for Sci-hub.io.

.

The domain name has stopped resolving and is now listed as reserved according to the latest WHOIS info. TorrentFreak reached out to Sci-Hub founder Alexandra Elbakyan, who informed us that the registrar sent her a notice referring to a complaint from Elsevier.

.

Elbakyan was also quick to add that several backup domain names are still in play, including Sci-Hub.bz and Sci-Hub.cc. This means that the site remains accessible to those who update their bookmarks.

Sci-Hub

From Wikipedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sci-Hub

.

Sci-Hub is an online repository of over 51,000,000[1] scientific academic papers and articles,[2] available through its website. New papers are uploaded daily after accessing them through .edu proxies.[3] Founded by Alexandra Elbakyan from Kazakhstan in 2011, it began as a reaction to the high cost of research papers behind paywalls, typically US$30 each when bought on a per-paper basis.[4] Academic publisher Elsevier has in 2015 filed a legal complaint in New York City alleging copyright infringement by Sci-Hub.[5]

Sci-Hub is providing science publishers with their Napster moment

A report from Science shows that academic paper piracy site Sci-Hub is not a niche product catering to cheapskates and isolated mad scientists: Its as popular as it is illegal, and its millions of users span the globe, from Tehran to Boston.

.

For those not aware, Sci-Hub is, in the X for Y startup lingo of our days, The Pirate Bay for research. Millions of papers, many of which require a fee or institutional subscription of some kind to access, have been downloaded in full and added to the Sci-Hub database. You can get just about any paper you want with a few keystrokes  and, naturally, publishers are furious.

.

Alexandra Elbakyan, the young Kazakh grad student who founded Sci-Hub in 2011, provided Science reporter John Bohannon with six months of usage data  which, incidentally, the journal is kindly providing for anyone to download themselves.

.

The stats, which have been scrubbed of personally identifying information, are impressive: There are more than 50 million papers stored, with between 4 and 6 million downloaded a month. There are users on every continent but Antarctica

Paper piracy sparks online debate

Data on Sci-Hub activity prompts discussion about why the research-paper website is so popular.

Piracy site for academic journals playing game of domain-name Whac-A-Mole
Just like The Pirate Bay, Sci-Hub is domain hopping to beat takedown court orders.

by David Kravets – May 5, 2016 5:40pm EDT

LAW AND DISORDER / CIVILIZATION & DISCONTENTS

http://tinyurl.com/zegz37h

.

We reported a few weeks ago on a popular pirate site for science journals whose oversees admin was being sued by one of the world’s leading academic publishers, Elsevier. Elsevier is the same New York publisher that the late Aaron Swartz had noted in his “Guerilla Open Access Manifesto” that told academics and researchers they had a “duty” to free the knowledge they were privileged to read behind Elsevier’s paywall.

.

Because of the lawsuit, which Sci-Hub founder Alexandra Elbakyan has refused to participate in, she’s been engaged in a game of domain-name Whac-A-Mole in response to Elsevier winning court orders demanding the shuttering of the popular site’s domain name. The site allows anybody, not just academics, to access tens of millions of scholastic research articles for free.

Meaningful CSS: Style Like You Mean It

By Tim Baxter.

“Our markup too often remains a snarl of divs, our CSS a chaos of

support our markup instead of the other way around, and both can be
more semantic and meaningful. The browser support is there; the
standards are in place. Only habit is stopping us.”

Study: Medical Errors are the Third Biggest Cause of Death in America

Updated by Sarah Kliff

May 3, 2016, 6:30 p.m. ET

Vox

http://www.vox.com/2016/5/3/11579974/medical-errors-death-harm

.

.

Medical errors kill more people than car crashes or new disease outbreaks. They kill more people annually than breast cancer, AIDS, plane crashes, or drug overdoses. A new study estimates that they are the third leading cause of death in the United States, causing a quarter-million fatalities in 2013 alone.

.

Patient safety researchers Marty Makary and Michael Daniel published new data in the British Medical Journal Tuesday suggesting that preventable medical errors resulted in 251,454 deaths in 2013. If that estimate is correct, the only bigger causes of death are heart disease and cancer.

.

The researchers worry, however, that their number is actually an underestimate that medical harm kills even more patients than we’re currently able to count.

.

“Something like 2 to 3 percent of people who go into the hospital are going to have some pretty severe harm as a result,” Don Berwick, the Obama administration’s former Medicare administrator, previously told Vox. “Australian studies show that the rate might be as high as 12 percent. The harder you look, and the more you study the issue, the more errors you find.”

.

It’s incredibly difficult to know how many deaths result from medical harm

.

When there is a plane crash in the United States, federal law requires airlines to report that information to the National Transportation Safety Board. It investigates each incident and tries to figure out what went wrong and how it could be prevented in the future.

.

But there’s no analogous body in health care.

.

When a patient dies as a result of medical harm, there’s no regulator that has to get notified  the hospital doesn’t send off paperwork about the error that occurred. Sometimes the information gets jotted down in the patient’s medical record, but even that is not a certainty.

.

This makes estimating the frequency of medical harm very difficult  and researchers generally believe that their figures underestimate the prevalence of harm. Their study uses data from four recent studies, all of which relied on medical records to estimate fatalities caused by medical errors. So the authors know that their estimate of fatalities misses any errors that weren’t captured in the medical record.

.

“We believe [our estimate] understates the true incidence of death due to medical error because the studies cited rely on errors extractable in documented health records and include only inpatient deaths,” Makary and Daniel write.

.

Still, they argue that there is value to putting out the best number they can find, as it can draw attention to the potential magnitude of a rarely discussed problem in health care.
