Advanced Bioinformatic Platforms For Scientific Libraries and Privatization of Science
In the last two years we have witnessed an exponential increase in information technology technology, which has entered more and more into everyday life. Despite this increase in digitization, however, we still witness a phenomenon, especially affected, in the past and in the present, among students in the faculties, namely the lack of possibility of needing resources such as scientific articles and / or texts, online, if not through the payment of a fee. In response to this, platforms emerge that make it possible to overcome all this. The first of these platforms is Sci Hub, the brainchild of Alexandra Elbakyan, a young Kazakh scientist, who allows access to scientific literature through the use of the DOI code of each article. The second platform is Library Genesis, a boundless but extraordinary virtual world, bordering the Deep Web. What I want to give are some simple steps of how to make them usable from any terminal, also using the Tor browser, in place of Google (Windows and / or Mac OS) and / or Mozilla Firefox, which, through the anti-tracking and coverage application of the IP address, allows you to consult these platforms without requiring the use of VPN protections.
