Publishers Partner With ResearchGate to Improve Sharing of Scholarly Content
Springer Nature, Cambridge University Press, Thieme, and ResearchGate teamed up to make it easier to legally share academic journal articles on ResearchGate’s collaboration platform. The terms of their agreement include the following: The organizations will cooperate on educating researchers about their rights when sharing copyright-protected content, ResearchGate will continue to remove copyright-infringing content from its platform, and publishers will use ResearchGate to learn about how their content is used on the platform.
According to ResearchGate’s blog post, “The agreement ultimately involves publishers who want to help and support content sharing and believe that working with ResearchGate, the largest professional network for scientists and academics, is one of the important means to achieving this.”
