ResearchGate and Wiley Enter Into a Cooperation Agreement
ResearchGate and Wiley are joining forces for a cooperation agreement that allows them “to explore ways in which Wiley and ResearchGate can collaborate to better support the needs of researchers through ResearchGate’s collaboration platform. Wiley and ResearchGate are committed to the protection of intellectual property rights for authors and publishers; and through this partnership, both companies will continue to support principled sharing of content while facilitating the discovery of and access to high-quality scholarly content for researchers.”
They intend to do the following:
- Experiment with new models of journal article discovery to better serve the companies’ shared objective of advancing research communication and collaboration
- Develop and share insights about the usage of Wiley content on the platform
- Collaborate on educating users about their rights in relation to copyright-protected content by providing clear and relevant information about how and when they may share their journal articles on the network
- Work to promptly identify and address any copyright-infringing public sharing of Wiley content on the ResearchGate platform
