Is it safe to publish preprints on ResearchGate?
ResearchGate is a professional networking site for research scientists that enables researchers to connect with one another professionally, and allows them to share and promote their work. In addition to facilitating communication between research scientists, this site also enable scientists to track their publication statistics and metrics and share publications by posting them to the site. ResearchGate not only allows users to post published works (which are not copyright-protected by the journal that originally published them), it also allows users to upload preprints, or author’s versions, much like a standard preprint server.
