ResearchGate – Science Networking

Several days ago, I hit on a link to a social network made for (and from) scientists within a Blog post. “ResearchGate is an online information society service” (Terms and Conditions of ResearchGate). The key features I found at the moment are: “What’s new in publications”, a service showing actual publications hitting tags you can enter in your personal profile; and the ability to follow and easily communicate with other researchers. It sounded interesting enough for me to have a further look.

Currently 262 Scientists of the TU Dresden are registered, more than I expected. Registration is easy and the only information one has to store is name, email, and password; everything else can be skipped. At least some information to your interests and research are useful to gain benefit from the service 😉 It was the first time I really read through Terms and Licenses of a website and found some nice phrases I want to share. Well, everyone should read it on it’s own…

  • The Provider [ResearchGate] neither previews nor automatically reviews such [stored] information (Terms and Conditions).
  • Users must not publish, share, sell or make available information that is provided within the Service by the Provider or by other Users to/with any third party (Terms and Conditions).
  • Unlike some other Web services, ResearchGate will definitely not store any personal data of former users (Private Policy). LOL
  • Will ResearchGate sell personal data to any third parties? – No. ResearchGate will not sell or otherwise share personal data (Private Policy).

First Impression: Great! Meet you there 😉

    Much is claimed and discussed the crimes committed with the
    aborigines contrary to the white man, however it needs to be remembered that the blacks got great provocation.
    Father found its way to Melbourne a really
    sick man, and he immediately underwent treatment by specialists for his throat trouble.

    Neighbours were quite few, high were only three other women living in the neighbourhood – all lived either in bark huts
    or tents with their young children.

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I
    stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always useful to read articles from
    other writers and practice a little something from their websites.

    When someone writes an article he/she keeps the thought of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it.
    Thus that’s why this paragraph is amazing. Thanks!
