Inviting your peers, colleagues, and co-authors to join you on ResearchGate is a great way to build your network. It also helps you keep up to date with what they’re working on and publishing.

  1. Go to your ResearchGate Live Feed
  2. You’ll see a Related researchers list on the right-hand side
  3. Click the Invite your colleagues button below this list
  4. Enter your colleague’s email address. If you want to invite multiple researchers, separate their email addresses with commas
  5. Type in an optional message
  6. Click Invite to confirm and send the invitation. 


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. Click Import contacts on the top right-hand side of the page
  3. This will take you to the Find your colleagues page
  4. Click on your email provider and follow the instructions provided.

Note: ResearchGate will never store your email password. 

One way to make sure that your publications gain maximum exposure among your peers is by inviting your co-authors to join you on ResearchGate when you add publications to your profile. This way, they too can create a profile, confirm authorship of their work, and share it with their own network. If you’d like your co-authors to join you, just make sure that the Invite my co-authors to ResearchGate box is checked when you’re adding publications, and where possible, an invitation will be sent to them. Invitations will only be sent if this box is checked; ResearchGate does not email your co-authors on your behalf without your knowledge or consent.

You can customize this feature at any time. To do this, go to your Invitation settings and uncheck the box at the top of the page that reads Invite my co-authors to ResearchGate.
