Sci-Hub: removing barriers in the way of science
At this time the widest possible distribution of research papers, as well as of other scientific or educational sources, is artificially restricted by copyright laws. Such laws effectively slow down the development of science in human society. The Sci-Hub project, running from 5th September 2011, is challenging the status quo. At the moment, Sci-Hub provides access to hundreds of thousands research papers every day, effectively bypassing any paywalls and restrictions.

Self-publish your in-progress book for great royalties on Leanpub
You write a Leanpub book using Markdown.

When you sign up to write a book on Leanpub, we create a Dropbox folder for the book and we email you a sharing request. If you already have a Dropbox account, you get the new folder in your existing Dropbox account. If you don't already have a Dropbox account, you need to create one. (Dropbox is a fantastic free private file sharing service used by hundreds of thousands of people.)

Once you have the Dropbox folder set up, you start writing your book. You can either start from scratch or click a button to import your blog's RSS feed as a starting point for your book. If you choose to import your blog, when we do the import we convert it into Markdown.

Whenever you want to preview what your book looks like, just click a button on Leanpub. We generate PDF, EPUB and MOBI versions and put them in the Dropbox folder that you shared with us.

When you're ready to sell your book, just set your price and click a button on Leanpub. We generate and sell PDF, EPUB and MOBI versions of your book. (PDF is for computers; EPUB is for iPad and other ebook readers; MOBI is for Kindle.) We also automatically create free sample versions of your book if you specify files to include in the sample.
