ResearchGate was built by scientists, for scientists.


It started when two researchers discovered first-hand that collaborating with a friend or colleague on the other side of the world was no easy task.Founded in 2008 by physicians Dr. Ijad Madisch and Dr. Sören Hofmayer, and computer scientist Horst Fickenscher, ResearchGate today has more than 7 million members. We strive to help them make progress happen faster.

Our mission

Our mission is to connect researchers and make it easy for them to share and access scientific output, knowledge, and expertise. On ResearchGate they find what they need to advance their research.

About paper publication

ResearchGate links researchers around selected topics and specialisations – these can be chosen or edited at any time by members.  Members can track and follow the research publications of others in their field. Members can upload copies of papers (either pre- or post-review) and the associated raw data.  All will be searchable.  Non-peer-reviewed material can be added only through manual file upload. Researchers are encouraged not only to upload successful results but also those results from failed projects or experiments – the latter are stored in a separate but searchable area.ResearchGate finds publications for members from a number of major databases,for example, PubMedarXivIEEERePEC and CiteSeer enabling automatic creation of a publications list. Lists can also be created or added to manually or importing from a reference management database such as EndNote.It also appears to trawl University web sites and repositories so that if you have papers in the Exeter repository, ORE, it is very easy to create profiles and publication lists.  Members will be asked to accept or decline publications (as is the case with Symplectic, for example). Members are automatically subscribed to a co-author’s feed, so that they can see work from and connect with their co-authors’ co-authors. ResearchGate offers the ability to search and filter on a variety of topics: author, institution, journal, publication, and so on. Members can request a copy of a paper from the author if it is not freely available. Full text publications uploaded to ResearchGate are indexed by Google. ResearchGate contains useful information about journals, such as impact factors, metrics and some details of open access policy – in this respect it is useful for bringing information together into one place.
