The new ResearchGate profile: a greater presence for a richer experience
11th March 2011
Profiles represent people: this is why the new ResearchGate profile was designed with you in mind.
Start with yourself:
Your profile is where it all begins: add a photo and then let people know where you work, what your research interests are and how they can get in touch with you. Add a few more details about your educational background, skills, grants and conferences to round out your online research resume.
Add your publications:
Increasing the visibility and accessibility of your research couldn’t be easier: use the ResearchGate literature search to find your publications and easily add them to your profile.
Connect with others:
People make the online community what it is: from your profile page you can find out who is following you and access the groups you are a member of and contribute to discussions in your field.
Your personal ResearchGate blog is a great way to share what you think is important or interesting. We compile the best posts from across ResearchGate on our community Research Blog; why not submit a post for consideration?
Protect your privacy:
It is up to you to decide who has access to your profile. You can edit your privacy settings by selecting ‘Account’ at the top of the page.
