ResearchGate is a social networking site for researchers. Once you create a profile you can add information about your research interests and engage with other researchers in a variety of ways, including collaborating on projects, and asking and answering questions.

You can add information about your publications yourself but ResearchGate will also try and do this automatically on your behalf - it is recommended that you check any automatically added publications for accuracy. You also have the option to upload the full text of your publications but you should check that doing so is acceptable under the publisher’s terms and conditions.

Finding and sharing papers is a popular aspect of the site, which provides a ‘request a copy’ option when the full text isn’t available.
