ResearchGate makes it easy for you to add your publications as well as your unpublished work to your profile. There are two ways to add research to your profile.

  1. Confirm authorship of a publication that already exists on ResearchGate
  2. Create a publication page for your research that's not yet on ResearchGate

You'll find clear instructions on both methods of adding research below. Once you’ve added your publications and research to your profile, they’ll be listed under your Contributions tab.Research tab.

You can learn more about what ResearchGate is, the difference between a publication page and a full-text, and what it means to confirm authorship of a publication here.

If you have questions about whether you're allowed to share your content on ResearchGate, see the Copyright section in the Help Center. 


Why is my publication already listed on ResearchGate? 

ResearchGate’s extensive publication database is compiled using publicly available metadata from other literature databases, including repositories that contain publications with a Creative Commons license. It is also contributed to by ResearchGate members.

There may be publications on ResearchGate that you have authored but that you haven't added to your profile.  If there’s already an existing publication page for your publication, it may have been created by a co-author, or by ResearchGate using publicly available information.

In general, proprietary full-text content only appears on ResearchGate when it has been uploaded by an author. So, if there’s already a full-text of your publication available on ResearchGate, the most likely explanation is that it has been uploaded by one of your co-authors. You can identify the name of the uploader by going to the publication page and looking just above the full-text. If you have concerns that your co-authors may have improperly made full-texts available, we recommend that you try contacting them directly.

In some cases, we may make a full-text available where a publication has a Creative Commons license. If you feel that a publication has been wrongly attributed a Creative Commons license, please contact us at www.researchgate.net/contact

How do I confirm authorship of my publications to add them to my profile?  

As explained above, many of your publications may already be listed in our database. We group all publications in our database by author using a name-matching algorithm. To quickly and easily add the publications we've matched to you to your profile, simply follow these steps:

  1. Go to the publication page of a research item you authored
  2. Click on your name below the title of the research item to visit your scientific contributions page
  3. Click the blue button starting with Are you... at the top right-hand corner to add the listed publications to your profile.

To add one research item that you authored to your profile:

  1. Go to the research item's publication page 
  2. Click the More button underneath the stats on the right-hand side
  3. Select Claim authorship - is this your work? from the drop-down menu.

You will then be able to find the research item listed on the Research tab on your profile.

How do I create a publication page? 

ResearchGate members can create publication pages for their content. If you create a publication page for your work, you are completely in control of it. You can edit it at any time, add or remove a full-text, or delete the page entirely if you wish.

When creating a publication, you can add your co-authors' names to the publication list. In some cases, you can automatically add your publication to your co-authors' profiles, such as when adding researchers who follow you on ResearchGate, who are already listed as your co-author, or who are members of the same institution as you on ResearchGate. In these cases, your co-author's name will be automatically suggested once you start typing, and if they have a profile picture, it will appear on the publication page.

You can still add co-authors that do not fall into these categories, but your publication will not be automatically be added to their profile and if you hover over their name on the publication page, you'll see the message 'Not yet on ResearchGate or hasn't claimed this research yet'.

If your colleague has not yet claimed authorship of their publication, you can bring this to their attention by using the Share feature. To do so, go to the publication page, then click the blue Share button underneath the stats. Choose Share as a message, start typing your colleague's name, select the correct suggestion from the list when it appears, and then click Share, or Add message if you'd like to include a note before you share.
