I found something interesting while using sci-hub

These seem to be mirror stations of sci-hub, but only the interface language has been changed, and the functions seem to be consistent with sci-hub

It seems that some people have used the sci-hub.ltd domain name to do a lot of sub-sites, but I currently only find the above four URLs ...

What do you think of them?

I think this is a way to help sci-hub promote

People who use SciHub frequently use their mirror sites. They are just ways of getting around some sites being taken down by the authorities, since, as discussed in other threads, what SciHub are doing (while laudable) is still very much illegal.

I would advise caution on any mirror site though. They are very often legit, but since some don't offer HTTPS, connecting to them can be risky.

Yes, be sure to choose to access the https encrypted link when visiting so that your calculator is safe

But I think it seems that the translation language of these sites is inaccurate

If it were you, what title would you give these stations?

Of course, the corresponding title should be the corresponding country and language

Google's in-page translation works well enough to convert the sites to native languages (at least for my usage). The site is also pretty simple (click a couple of prominent buttons and complete a captcha), so translated sites aren't really a big deal for me personally.

You have quite an interest in discussing scihub-related topics. Any reason for this? Just wondering.

I only posted two posts ... although both are related to sci-hub ... The reason may be because I am using it recently

And I'm curious about it, according to Alexander Twitter, sci-hub seems to be operating alone

It is operating alone, it was started by a Russian researcher (IIRC), but there are a few more on the team now I think, and probably some volunteer developers etc. There are plenty of articles online about it now, so there's plenty you can read up on if you're curious.

There may be some others who have voluntarily set up mirror sites if they wish to support their efforts.This is pretty normal, and is the same situation as with other 'dubious' sites such as ThePirateBay etc.
