What are mentions?

A 'mention' is when one of your research items is talked about or linked to on sites outside of ResearchGate. This includes mentions of your research on Twitter, Wikipedia, and other websites, such as news sites and blogs.

Mentions help you learn about and follow the discussion of your work online. Together with other metrics, they help you get a more comprehensive overview of the impact of your work.

We can only find mentions for the research that you’ve added to your profile.

How do I see my mentions?

  2. Visit the Stats tab on your profileand then click on the mentions tab
  3. If you have several mentions, then under Recent mentions click on View all mentions.

  2. Click on the arrow next to your profile picture in the top right-hand corner and click on Privacy settings
