Press release

Open access content from Rockefeller University Press now available on ResearchGate

November 22, 2021

Berlin and New York, November 22, 2021 – ResearchGate and Rockefeller University Press (RUP) today announced the completion of the first phase of a content syndication pilot partnership. ResearchGate users can now find full-text Immediate OA articles and a subset of five years of archival content published in the Journal of Cell Biology (JCB), Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM), and Journal of General Physiology (JGP) between May 2016 and April 2021 on the network — approximately 2,800 articles in total.

The syndication of RUP content on ResearchGate makes it easier for researchers to discover and access JCB, JEM, and JGP articles that are relevant to their work. JCB, JEM, and JGP authors with ResearchGate profiles will see their titles added to publication pages automatically and have insight into usage statistics. ResearchGate members can access publication full-texts on the platform and engage and interact with authors as well as other readers from these journals.

“We’re very pleased with the progress of our collaboration with Rockefeller University Press and credit its success to date to a shared vision of supporting researchers,” says Sven Fund, General Manager, Publisher Solutions at ResearchGate.

As part of the content syndication partnership, RUP provides full XML to ResearchGate to quickly and fully index content, leveraging usage of JATS tagging. ResearchGate in turn provides RUP insights on how JCB, JEM, and JGP articles are used within its network, providing a more holistic view of the overall usage and reach of RUP journals.

“We are thrilled to initiate the first phase of the content syndication partnership with ResearchGate, with the goal to expand the reach and the impact of our authors’ work,” says Susan King, Executive Director of Rockefeller University Press.
