I have two profiles - why did this happen and how can I fix it?

Duplicate profiles are sometimes created because of the various ways you can sign up to ResearchGate. The best way to fix this is to delete whichever profile is less complete. At this time, there’s no possibility to merge duplicate profiles.

To delete your secondary profile:

  1. Log in with the email address you used to create your secondary profile
  2. Go to your Account Settings page
  3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page
  4. Click the Delete account button. 

If you no longer have access to the old profile, please let us know through the Contact form and provide us with the email addresses for the duplicate profiles. Also, please specify which link should be kept and which link should be removed.

Please note that we can only transfer the publications to your new account and remove the old one. Profile views, followers, followings, and questions will not be transferred.
