Yes, we did it again: A new ResearchGATE feature will increase your scientific productivity even more. Just type a medical term, an acronym or a researcher's name into the white box on the upper left-hand side of your profile - and our internal search engine will show you all its occurences within the entire network. Come take a tour with us!

The more connections among your contacts, the tighter is your network – this is the principle behind our latest tools. The first one allows you to introduce people from your ResearchGATE contact list to each other with a short message. The second one gives you the option to connect to your personal email account and select contacts you want to invite to the platform. For those with a large address book, augmenting your network becomes still easier: Import your entire Outlook address book into ResearchGATE, or any address file in CSV format (entries seperated with semicolons). Our goal is to meet all of your communication needs!
Your friends will be friends: Via your personal profile, you can introduce your contacts to each other.

Most of the search engines on the web are actually – stupid. This sounds harsh, but it is true: Their algorithms provide you with page results based on criteria such as the number of occurrences of search terms or their overall audience. Do you care about this as a researcher? Probably, no. Research topics are often too complex to be narrowed down into a few words.
That is why we are happy to introduce ReFind, a new search engine based on semantic, "intelligent" correlation - the first of its kind! It enables you to find groups, papers, fellow researchers and everything else within and outside of ResearchGATE without having to read through dozens of irrelevant results. Just type a few sentences into ReFind or simply copy and paste your abstract and ReFind will roam through databases such as PubMEd for you. Automatically, it will show you connections to fellow researchers, groups and other ResearchGATE resources, based on the profile data you provided. This is true web 3.0! The following screenshots provide examples for both the "Similar Abstract Search" functionality and the "Semantic Relations" functionality.

The group feature on ResearchGATE is a big success story. Most groups show high levels of activity. Their purpose is very diverse: Some represent real-world research organizations, others serve as a forum for conferences or even as substitutes for a proper webpage. To improve the handling, group administrators have now access to a new feature for sending messages to all members with only one click of the mouse. Fellow group members can propose such "messages to all", but the administrator will always make the final decision.
