See more readers

Provided you have your reader visibility settings enabled, as a +Plus user you will see the profiles of all of your readers who are logged in and also have their visibility settings enabled. Those who don’t fit these criteria will show up on the total reads numbers but you won’t see their individual profiles.

Advanced stats

As a +Plus user you will see advanced stats about your readers, including a breakdown by seniority and discipline. You’ll also get information about how your readers discover your research on ResearchGate (such as through ResearchGate, Google, etc.).

Increased visibility

Provided you have your reader visibility settings enabled, every time you read a publication as a +Plus user your profile will be visible to publication authors, even those who aren’t subscribed to +Plus and can only see a limited number of weekly readers, as long as the authors also have their visibility settings enabled.

Web mentions

As a +Plus user you can see when others mention and link to your research online. This includes mentions of your research on ResearchGate on sites such as news sites, Twitter, and Wikipedia.
