Go Baông xã khổng lồ the Impact Challenge Table of ContentsWe’ll be honest – we thought long và hard about including this chapter and its activities in the OU Impact Challenge. Academia.edu & ResearchGate both seem attractive sầu khổng lồ scholars, but they also have their tóm tắt of disadvantages & downsides.Ultimately, we decided to lớn include this information, because so many of you at OU have accounts on these two sites. A quiông chồng tìm kiếm turns up 3,849 OU-affiliated users on Academia.edu và 4,731 on ResearchGate! But instead of diving right inkhổng lồ the “how tos,” we think it’s especially important to lớn place these two sites into context and preface them with important considerations.

Consideration #1: You Are Not the Customer
Similar khổng lồ many of the other academic social networks we cover in the OU Impact Challenge, you are not the customer when you interact with these companies, even though you may feel like one. Instead, you are the product that these services seek khổng lồ monetize and/or “offer up” lớn advertisers. We don’t fault businesses for making money; that is the imperative for them to lớn exist. But we also see Academia.edu & ResearchGate as an extension of those who monetize what many scholars believe should be freely shared.Importantly, if these companies are bought, sold, or go out of business, what would happen lớn the nội dung you’ve placed there? This is one reason why it is advisable khổng lồ first upload items you want to nội dung – articles, preprints, postprints, conference posters, proceedings, slide decks, lesson plans, etc. – lớn SHAREOK (which we’ll be covering in Chapter 12 of the OU Impact Challenge). Librarians maintain an OU Faculty/Staff Collection & a Graduate Student Collection in SHAREOK where you can deposit your work. The items in SHAREOK are indexed by Google và Google Scholar, so they are searchable, findable, và downloadable by researchers around the world. OU librarians maintain the platkhung, the content, và the links. Most importantly, maintaining and preserving nội dung is one of the core missions of the OU Libraries. We aren’t going out of business, so your nội dung on SHAREOK won’t go away either.
Consideration #2: You Might Be Breaking the Law
Consideration #3: Understand the Privacy Implications
Finally, some of these sites’ tactics are troubling from the standpoint of privacy & intellectual freedom. Personally và professionally, many find it distressing that a private company, which doesn’t adhere khổng lồ the same professional ethics as librarians and other scholars vị, collects information about who is reading what. Academia.edu, in particular, then offers to mô tả that information with you if you subscribe to their “premium service.” And while their analytics dashboard doesn’t reveal readers’ names, it may provide enough information for you khổng lồ know exactly who read your work.You may decide not to lớn pay for Academia.edu’s premium service, but even so – what you view and download will still be tracked. This may not be troubling lớn you (the “I’m not doing anything wrong, so I don’t care” argument), but we think it sets a bad precedent. What about tracking researchers who study terrorism? Or whistleblowing? Or even climate change? How might people at these academic social truyền thông media companies create profiles và make judgments about you based on what you are reading? And what will they vì with the information they collect, especially if asked for it by government entities?We’ve sầu posted some additional reading và resources below. And we will continue khổng lồ cover some of these topics in the future, since they are highly relevant to sharing scholarly work. If you’re still interested in Academia.edu and/or ResearchGate after reading these articles, we’ve sầu gone ahead and included those activities further down below. We’ve sầu purposefully kept these activities brief, at least for now.
Make Profiles on Academia.edu and ResearchGate
You know all those things you wish your CV was smart enough to vì – embed your papers, automatically give sầu you readership statistics, and so on? Academia.edu và ResearchGate are two academic social networks that allow you lớn vì these things and then some.They’re also places where your some of your colleagues are spending their time. Actively participating on one or both networks may give you an opportunity lớn have greater reach with other researchers. And getting your publications và presentations onto these sites legally will make it easier for others to lớn encounter your work. They bởi this not only through the social network they help you build, but also by improving the tìm kiếm engine optimization (SEO) of your research, making you much more “Googleable.”Both platforms allow you to lớn vì chưng the following: Create a protệp tin that summarizes your researchUpload your publications, so others can find themFind and follow other researchers, so you can receive automatic updates on their new publicationsFind & read others’ publicationsSee platform-specific metrics that indicate the readership và reach you have on those sitesLet’s dig into lớn the basics of setting up profiles và uploading your work on these sites.
Getting Started on Academia.edu
Logon to Academia.edu. If you’re a firm believer in keeping your professional online presence separate from your personal one, you’ll likely want to lớn sign up using your OU gmail address. Otherwise, you can sign up using your Facebook or Google profile. From here, you’ll be directed through the basic signup process.
If you can post your article (or your preprint or postprint), upload it lớn Academia.edu by clicking the green “Upload” button near the top of the window and navigating to lớn the publication you want to upload.Once it’s uploaded, hit the big xanh “Continue” button, và you’ll be asked if you’re uploading a published or unpublished work. The title of your publication will then be automatically extracted. Make any corrections necessary khổng lồ the title, and add co-authors and an abstract. chú ý that if your co-authors aren’t already on Academia.edu, the only way to add them is to provide their email address và Academia.edu will send them an invitation khổng lồ join the site. Add “research interests,” which are từ khóa that will help others find your publication. Select the type of publication from the drop down menu, & then cliông chồng “Save sầu & Finish.” From there you’ll be taken lớn a full-page ad asking if you’d like to lớn tăng cấp to the Premium version of Academia.edu.
Fill Out Your Profile
Now it’s time to lớn add your OU affiliation and interests to your protệp tin. Adding an OU affiliation will add you khổng lồ a subdomain name of Academia.edu which will allow you khổng lồ more easily find your colleagues. The site will try khổng lồ guess your affiliation based on your email address or IPhường address; make any corrections needed and add your department information & title.Then, add your research interests. These are also important; they’ll help others find you & your work.
Connect With Others
Now let’s connect with your colleagues who are already on Academia.edu. You can either connect your Facebook tài khoản or an tin nhắn account lớn Academia.edu, which will search your contacts and suggest connections.You now have an Academia.edu profile! You can continue to spruce it up by adding more publications, as well as adding a photo of yourself, other retìm kiếm interests and publications, và connecting your Academia profile khổng lồ the other services we’ve covered like ORCiD, GoogleScholar, Twitter, & LinkedIn. See how this might be coming together?!?
Now that you have sầu a profile, set aside half an hour khổng lồ explore two uses of Academia.edu: Exploring “retìm kiếm interests” in order to lớn discover other researchers & publications; andGetting more of your most important publications online; andRetìm kiếm interests: On your protệp tin page, only your first research interest is visible (followed by a number in parenthesis, which represents how many additional retìm kiếm interests you have). Hover your mouse over your research interest lớn make the others appear, & then cliông chồng on one of them. You will be taken to a page with uploaded papers tagged with the same retìm kiếm interest.Towards the top of the page, notice you’re on the “Papers” view. There’s also a “People” view that will take you khổng lồ the profiles of scholars with similar interests. For the tìm kiếm results that appear, take some time lớn explore the profiles and papers of others who nội dung your interest(s) and follow anyone that looks interesting.We’re willing lớn bet you’ll find scholars & papers that you weren’t aware of before. You can also use the Academia.edu search to look for research interests outside of the ones you’ve got listed in your profile and explore those tìm kiếm results too.
Make a Profile on ResearchGate
Next, we’ll help you with the other major player in the scholarly social network space, ResearchGate. ResearchGate claims 15 million users, & it will help you connect with many researchers who aren’t on Academia.edu. It can also help you underst& your readers through platform-specific metrics, and confirm your status as a helpful expert in your field with their “Q&A” feature.Given ResearchGate’s similarity to lớn Academia.edu, we won’t rehash the basics of setting up a protệp tin and getting your publications online. Go ahead và sign up, phối up your trương mục (remember to lớn add detailed affiliation information and a photo), & add a publication or two.Got your basic protệp tin up và running? Great! Let’s drill down inkhổng lồ those three quality features of ResearchGate.
Find other researchers & publications
Finding other researchers và publications on ResearchGate works a bit differently than on Academia.edu. ResearchGate automatically suggests retìm kiếm interests & connections for you based on who you’ve sầu cited, who you follow & what discipline you selected when setting up your profile.Therefore, key to lớn creating a robust network is uploading papers with citations khổng lồ be text-mined & searching for and following other researchers in your field. Until you’ve done this, ResearchGate can be a bit of a struggle lớn use effectively.Searching for other researchers in your field is easy: use the tìm kiếm bar at the top of the screen & type in your colleague’s name. Clichồng on your colleague’s name in the search results to lớn be taken to lớn their profile, where you can explore their publications, co-authors, & so on, & also follow them to lớn receive updates và suggestions for similar scholars. Here we’ve searched for & found Carl Dahlman:
ResearchGate also text-mines the publications you’ve sầu uploaded khổng lồ find out who you’ve cited. Using that information, they add both researchers you’ve sầu cited and those who have cited you to your network. Your network also includes colleagues from your department và institution. You can view & interact with your network down the right side of your profile page where you’ll see them broken up into: FollowingFollowersCited ByCitesTop co-authorsAgain, you must actively follow others và upload your work in order for your network lớn appear in this way.
Clichồng on the blue “Follow” lớn follow a scholar whose work you already know. Or cliông chồng on the author’s name khổng lồ be taken to lớn their protệp tin. On the author’s protệp tin you can explore their publications, & if you find an interesting one just clichồng the paper title to read the paper. This makes adding new colleague lớn your network a snap and finding new papers a breeze!
ResearchGate Score & Stats
If you’re inkhổng lồ metrics, the ResearchGate score và stats offer lots to explore. The ResearchGate score is an indicator of your engagement on the site: the more publications and followers you have sầu, plus the more questions you ask và answer, all add up lớn your score. We’ll use Carl Dahlman’s protệp tin as an example again:
ResearchGate also helpfully provides a percentile (seen above on the right-hvà side), so you know how a score stacks up against other users on the site. The score isn’t normalized by field, though, so beware that using the score to lớn compare yourself khổng lồ others isn’t recommended.Some other downsides to be aware of: ResearchGate scores don’t take inlớn tài khoản whether you’re first author on a paper, they weigh site participation much more highly than other (more important) indicators of your scientific prowess, and don’t reflect the reality of who’s a high-impact scientist in many fields. So, caveat emptor.All that said, ResearchGate scores are fun khổng lồ play around with và explore. Just be sure not to lớn take them too seriously.The ResearchGate stats (viewable only on your own protệp tin page when you are logged in) are also illuminating: they tell you how often your publications have sầu been viewed and cited on ResearchGate (recently và over time), what your top publications are, & the popularity of your protệp tin & any questions you may have sầu asked on the site’s Q&A section.A similar caveat: like Academia.edu stats, ResearchGate stats are only for content hosted on ResearchGate, so it can’t tell you much about readership or citations of your work that’s hosted on other platforms. And since it’s likely that your entire field isn’t active sầu on ResearchGate that means ResearchGate stats aren’t representative sầu of your full impact.
We’ve sầu covered many of the limitations of Academia.edu and ResearchGate in the first section of this chapter. But there is yet another one. It has been pointed out that Academia.edu và ResearchGate are information silos – you put information và effort into lớn the site, but you can’t easily extract và reuse it later. This is absolutely correct. That’s a big downside of these services and a great reason to make sure you’ve sầu claimed your ORCiD in Chapter 1.One solution lớn this drawback (and the ones mentioned above) is khổng lồ limit the amount of time you spkết thúc adding new nội dung to your profiles on these sites, and instead use them as a kind of “landing page” that can simply help others find you và three or four of your most important publications. Even if you don’t have sầu all your publications on either site, their social networking features may still be useful lớn make connections và increase readership for your most important work.
Set up your ResearchGate profile and add at least three publications you think deserve sầu attention. Next, search for at least five colleagues or well-known scholars in your field and follow each of them. Once you’ve sầu established a network, take 10 minutes to lớn explore them và their publications.Next, try out a broader search in ResearchGate by searching for a key word in your discipline.
