ResearchGate

ResearchGate is the leading social network for scientists. It offers tools and applications for researchers to interact and collaborate. ResearchGate offers a social, crowdsourced platform designed for researchers. The platform provides a global scientific web-based environment in which scientists can interact, exchange knowledge and collaborate with researchers of different fields.

The results of ResearchGate’s new search engine, called ReFind, are not merely based on keywords, but selected in an intelligent way based on semantic, contextual correlations.

ResearchGate

Through their personal profile, ResearchGate members are able to give a summary of their research, experience and publications, as well as having the option to self-archive their work to make it accessible to the wider scientific community. Additionally, ResearchGate has developed a semantic search engine that allows users to simultaneously search through seven of the largest literature databases including PubMed, IEEE, CiteSeer, arXiv, RePEc, NASA Library and OAI (Open Archives Initiative), to find abstracts or download full-texts. More than 10 million full-text publications can now be accessed via the platform.

Topics, ResearchGate’s Q&A forum, lets members ask questions, get answers and share interesting content with one another. Earlier this year, ResearchGate reported that approximately 12,342 questions were answered in their 4,000 topics in 2011 alone.
