You can edit your research item’s details by following these steps:
If you’re the creator of the research item and the sole claimant, you can modify the authors instantly. Otherwise, these changes will be reviewed manually and can take a small amount of time to be processed. To edit author names:
Note: Certain types of research cannot be changed to another type, including data and pre-prints. To change the type, you will need to remove the research item and re-upload it as the correct type. Similarly, research with a ResearchGate DOI attached cannot be edited. Instead, you need to remove the research completely, re-upload it with the correct details and then generate a new DOI for it. A DOI is a unique identifier – that’s why any edits after its creation render the DOI invalid.
Duplicate profiles are sometimes created because of the various ways you can sign up to ResearchGate. If you have two ResearchGate accounts, you can merge them quickly and easily. Merging allows you to transfer all your publications (including their related data, such as citations and reads) from your duplicate account to the account that you want to keep. The duplicate account will then be removed.
Please note that removing the duplicate account is irreversible so be careful when choosing which account to delete.
To merge your accounts:
Your request to merge your accounts will be reviewed and you will receive an email confirmation from us when the merge has been completed.
Please note that profile views, followers, followings, and questions will not be transferred.

Here’s how you can remove a publication page and/or full-text from your profile or from ResearchGate entirely:
Note: If you didn’t create the publication page, you will not have the option to remove it from ResearchGate entirely. You can, however, remove it from your profile. It’s also not possible for you to remove a full-text that has been uploaded by a co-author.
There’s an option to make your full-text private rather than removing it entirely from ResearchGate. This means the full-text will no longer be publicly displayed, but a private copy will be available to you and your co-authors. You must always ensure that you have the right to publicly share or privately store your full-text before doing so. For more information see Am I allowed to share my research on ResearchGate?
