AFAICS, the admonition not to use sci-hub is just FUD. The powers that be to guard their IP profits have done everything they can to block the site. Yet it remains one of the best sources to read scientific papers that were publicly funded. What I find outrageous is that a reprint of a single article costs many times the full price of an issue. Had it been perhaps $0.50 - $1.00 I might well have paid the journal for the PDF, but no, they want $10s for a paper.

Google to find papers and sci-hub to read them is by far the best and quickest way to do research, even inside the university system.
