We’ve adapted this feature based on your feedback. Currently, there are two ways you can invite your co-authors and colleagues:

  • Go To invite a co-author, go to a publication you wrote together. Hover , hover your mouse over your co-author's name, click click Invite and  and enter their email address. You will then send them this an invitation to join ResearchGate and, in some cases, up to two reminders:

Subject: [Your name] invited you to join ResearchGate

Message: [Your name] invited you to join ResearchGate and confirm authorship of: [the publication’s name].
