titleHow do I edit my publication details?

You can edit your research item’s details by following these steps:

  1. Go to the research item’s ResearchGate page by clicking on its title 
  2. Click on the blue arrow at the top right-hand side of the page and select Edit from the drop-down list
  3. Make the necessary changes
  4. Click Save.


  1. Go to your Research tab and scroll down to the research item
  2. Click on the downward-facing arrow next to Add resources  and select Edit
  3. Make the necessary changes
  4. Click Save.

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:

  1. Click Edit authors when you’re in the Edit dialog
  2. Update the author information and click Request changes or Save.

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.
