What is ResearchGate?

What is ResearchGate?

ResearchGate is an online social networking site for scientists, researchers, and published authors to share published and unpublished papers, to ask and answer questions within specific research areas, and find collaborators for publishing. 

The site requires an email address from a recognized institution or the user must be manually confirmed as a published researcher to sign up for an existing account. Users may follow specific research interests, institutions, and individual members, as well as upload articles (formal or self-published) that may be available for open access or by request (depending on the user's settings).
