We want you to be able to organise and display your academic output in the most efficient way possible, which is why we’ve been hard at work upgrading our publication infrastructure over the past few months.
Today, we’re thrilled to announce several improvements and a couple of brand new features for Publications.
Document viewer: We’ve built a nifty little document viewer that lets researchers read your publication directly from its detail page. This works with PDF files at the moment, but we’ll be expanding the types of files we support very soon.
Uploading supplementary data: Whether it’s raw data, a table of results or an image, you can now upload additional resources to your publications.
More detail for manually added publications: When manually adding publications, journal articles or conference proceedings, you’ll have the ability to include abstracts, keywords and much more. Additionally, each publication you add will get its own detail page, meaning that you’ll easily be able to share your work via a unique link. Other researchers can now also interact with your manually added work via by commenting on or rating it, in the same way they can with publications that have been added from our database.
More full-texts: We’ve now made more than 10 million full-texts accessible to you, all of which you can preview on ResearchGate. We’ll also provide you with a link to the publication source. If we’ve found a full-text you requested, we’ll send you an email to let you know.
Optimised database: We’ve optimised the way our database functions, meaning that everyone’s publication lists will be more accurate and up-to-date. Hassle free.
We hope you like what we’ve done as much as we do!
As always, we welcome all feedback - whether good, bad or ugly, so please send it our way.
And, if you spot something that shouldn’t be there, just let us know. You can reach us via email or Twitter.
