Can I invite contacts from my email address book?

Yes! The fastest way to find people you know or invite people to join you on ResearchGate is to import your email address book.

You can import your contacts in a few simple steps:

  1. Go to your Related researchers page
  2. You'll see a 'Find your colleagues' heading with the symbol of your email provider below
  3. Click on your email provider and follow the instructions provided.

Note: ResearchGate will never store your email password. 

Inviting my co-authors to join ResearchGate

One way to make sure that your research gains maximum exposure among your peers is by inviting your co-authors to join you on ResearchGate.

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

  • Go to a publication you wrote together. Hover over your co-authors name, click “Invite” and enter their email address. You will send them this invitation to 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].

  • You can also invite your co-authors to ResearchGate by clicking on the arrow in the top right-hand corner of any page next to your profile picture and click “Invite colleagues.”

Invitations will not be sent in your name unless you yourself send them. You can always see invitations you have sent here:
