ResearchGate reaches collaboration agreement with three publishers

Arrangement aims to ensure researchers are able to access and share high quality scholarly research responsibly.

Springer Nature, Cambridge University Press and Thieme will work with ResearchGate to support content sharing on the ResearchGate platform. 

The agreement means that:

  • ResearchGate and publishers will cooperate in educating users about their rights in relation to copyright-protected content by providing users with more and better information about how and when they may share their journal articles on the network
  • ResearchGate will continue to promptly remove copyright-infringing content when alerted by publishers
  • Publishers will get better visibility into the usage of new content on the platform

The agreement is the resultof discussions between publishers and ResearchGate announced last autumn.
