What are mentions?

A 'mention' is an instance of your research item being mentioned, talked about, or linked to online, on sites outside of ResearchGate. This includes mentions of your research on Twitter, Wikipedia, and other websites such as news sites and blogs. We can only find mentions for the research that you’ve added to your profile.
