We’ve updated our Privacy Policy


At ResearchGate, we always want to make sure you – our 18+ million members – get the best service possible from our platform. That’s why we’re constantly looking for ways to improve, like updating our Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the legal landscape or changes we made to our service.

Here are the recent changes we made to our Privacy Policy:  

  • We implemented a new version of our Consent Management Tool to ensure we comply with industry standards for privacy. To describe how you can and should use this tool, we revised sec. 6 c).

  • In line with current developments regarding the “EU- US Privacy Shield”, we no longer refer to it and instead rely on alternative safeguards. Therefore, we deleted and updated the corresponding references to it in the text.

  • We also corrected three typos. 

Please read through the full Privacy Policy.


Thanks for being part of our global network and helping us make research open to all.
