ResearchGATE Rolls Out New Design and Functionality Updates

The ResearchGATE network has announced “a massive update in the way the platform looks and operates.” The new design is intended to make site navigation simpler and more efficient, improving access to the information, and making it easier for users to contribute to the research community. The Boston and Berlin based startup says it has more than 700,000 registered users from nearly 200 countries.

The tools used on a regular basis such as the literature search, groups, file sharing, micro-feed, and job search are all still there, but ResearchGATE is continuously working on how it can optimize the way they are used and how their functions can improved. These changes are based on feedback from users as well as on ideas to enhance the network. Over the next few weeks, ResearchGATE will go through how the new features have been implemented into the network and how users can get the most out of them.
