Just absurd that research gate is getting screwed over. I get people have to cover costs but Jesus Christ. I use scihub tbh. I go through their TOR address as it’s more secure. Also, I mirrored scihub as of last month. That way, when it goes down, I still have a copy of the entire site. I used WinHTtrack for this which compresses it to 20GB. It’s even bigger than this site in terms of mirrored size as this site was a 3GB file. library, documents, Wiki, whisper, and PDFs included. The file size is reduced to 0.005% if it’s original size because of how it works. A 5GB file link becomes a 1.6MB!

Are you sure you have the entire site? They have 70 million articles. If the entire mirror takes only 20GB that suggests each file takes on average just 286 bytes. I understand many of the files could be optimized and compressed but an average size of 286 bytes seems extreme.

Does WinHTtrack handle the CAPTCHAs?
