Berlin – ResearchGate, the professional network for researchers, and De Gruyter, an independent academic publisher disseminating excellent scholarship since 1749, have today announced a content syndication partnership that will see content from 437 of De Gruyter’s journals added to ResearchGate.
With approximately 114,000 articles being syndicated on launch, representing all open access content from De Gruyter’s journal portfolio, the scale of the partnership is particularly noteworthy. This initial set of articles represents all backlist content, and frontlist content will be added on publication.
Authors publishing open access, will see their articles automatically added to their publication pages on ResearchGate, giving them access to statistics and insights on the impact of their work, as well as enabling them to directly connect with their readers. Given the scale of the partnership, millions of researchers stand to benefit.
“As a trusted partner of scholars, our mission is to create opportunities to promote research and to nurture scholarly exchange. We are excited about this partnership with ResearchGate because it will benefit our authors around the world in allowing greater discoverability of their work, thus driving its impact and contributing to the global dissemination of knowledge,” said Lyndsey Dixon, VP Global Journals at De Gruyter.
“For many researchers, connection and collaboration starts by discovering someone’s work. In syndicating such a large volume of content to ResearchGate, De Gruyter is helping to facilitate this direct connection between a great many researchers. We’re delighted to be working with such a prestigious publisher, and look forward to seeing the results of the partnership,” said Sören Hofmayer, Chief Strategy Officer at ResearchGate.
