Inviting colleagues to ResearchGate

How do I invite others to join ResearchGate?

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

Currently, there are two ways you can invite your co-authors and colleagues:

  • To invite a co-author, go to a publication you wrote together, hover your mouse over your co-author's name, click Invite and enter their email address. You will then send them an invitation to join ResearchGate and, in some cases, up to two reminders.
  • To invite a colleague, click 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: https://www.researchgate.net/invitations.TrackInvitations.html.
